I recently bought a Stevens 200 in .270 win for 250 brand new.
I am definitely a budget shopper considering I have an 18 month old daughter and am a full time college student.

Anyways back to the gun..
I wanted to try to get a decent mount without having to order so ended up going with weaver mounts for about $7 at walmart and some Leupold rifleman cross slot type rings.

Question is: Does it matter which way my bases face?It looks really long how I have it set up now and was wondering if it is supposed to be a certain way. I dont want to jack up a scope right off the bat.

I do not yet have the scope but plan to buy one of the new Redfield Revolution in 3-9x40 with the accu-range reticle.. I have done a lot of reading and have only read good things about them and can find them online for 150. Considering they're backed by Leupold's lifetime warranty.. dont think it can be beat right now
