    Looking to purchase a Savage 10FP 223 used for target shooting current maximum range of 300 yards, I plan on using a Nikon 6x18x40 or a Burris 6x18X42, mostly I'm confused on bases and rings, I like the idea of one piece base anyone have suggestions.? I've searched a number of threads but having a difficult time locating correct bases and ring height needed. I would like to stay in a medium price range.

    For a 40mm scope, you can use the low rings (Leupold, Warne, etc. your choice), the 42mm scope may or may not require medium rings. Always mount a scope as low as possible...without it touching the barrel of course.

    1 piece mounting rail for a Savage 223...hmmm...I'd have to look that one up to give an exact answer...but I can say this, the 223 does not have much recoil, so there is no real need for anything fancy. And the 2 piece mounts will make it easier to load those little rounds into the mag...

    1 piece mounts are better (stiffen the action), but I would venture a guess that that would only matter on more powerful rounds.

    Dednutz is a machined aluminum one piece mount and a sponsor over on the SavageShooter board.

    I haven't seen a complaint on that board.
