    Looking for an experienced person to give me advise on a bullet proof setup for a new remington vs in .308. It will probably have a leupold or burris scope mounted on top but need advise on a good set of rings and base for the remington vs.

    Thank you.

    There's a bunch. My personal favorites are Badger Ordnance and IOR Valdada. Check over at www.snipershide.com for some really dedicated guys who will give you all the advice on the subject that you want...and maybe even more.:D

    The Leupold two piece bases just screw right on.

    That's what connects my 700 to my Leupold 4.5x11 'Tactical'.

    i like a 20moa base and warne rings (low if you have a 1" scope and 50 mm obj, and med. if you have a 30mm tube).

    warne rings are solid. very heavy, too, but not a problem w/ varmint guns.

    my second choice would be leupold 2-piece base w/ leupold rings. these bases sit a lot closer to the gun than the long range bases, so you will have to go w/ 'standard' ring size practices (i.e. med. rings for 40mm obj., high rings for 50's).

    This set up works for me (rifle close to what you're setting up)

    SA 3rd Generation Gov. / Burris One Piece Base / Luppy extra High rings

    Seems to keep all them little holes together

    Leupold QRW rings and QRW bases. Work like a champ!!

    I've got the QRW bases, and rings on mine also. They do work great.

    If you really do mean "bulletproof", then you need to find a one-piece steel base and some solid rings, probably in the picatinny 1913 spec.

    Other options would be a one-piece mount, but I don't really have any experience in those.

    If you just mean "solid" and reliable, then there are lots of good choices. I've heard exceptionally nice things about properly set up Burris Z rings.

    If you do go with the one-piece, please bed it properly.

    I was thinking of the badger 1 peice but the guys at snipershide told me about TPS are about 1/2 the price and they like them alot. But it is 1 peice set up. Please explain the installation process or is it best to have a good smith do it. And i was talking about the Steel setup.

    I'm using a Ken Farrell 1-pc base and TPS TSR-W low rings for my LTR and VS 5-R setup. This combo works great for me.
