    Looking for thoughts on high quality mounts and rings for a new Mod 70 feather weight in 264 win mag. Haven't pick out a scope yet but open to input on that also. Since the rifle is a feather weight I think I will most likely go with a 40mm objective, I have one rifle with a 50mm and it just always seems so big and it might look odd on a feather weight, but? What thoughts do you guys have? Thanks for any input.

    I have always used Leupold bases/rings on my Model 70s. I just ordered a set of Talleys for my Marlin 336 and if they work out for me I might use them on my next Model 70 I have on lay away which is a FW in .30-06.

    Link to Talleys is below. I like that the bases and rings are one piece. This is for the Marlin, but they make them for Model 70s.

    BTW, I'm going to put a 4x12 50mm scope on my .30-06 FW as I intend to use it for Elk hunting and want the extra light gathering and magnification it will provide. I think it will look fine if you really want a 50mm scope.

    sleepyone, I have used leupold and buris on everything to date and have had good luck, but it has been a long, long time since I have scoped up a new rifle. Put it this way, I have heard of talley, but have never seen a set, and water-man I have never hear of conetrol, so google don't fail me now! Thank for the ideas.

    dbro822,

    Google away. Conetrol is a name worth remembering.:)

    Burris signature rings is the only way I would go. The signature ring is the one with the plastic insert. That ring will never leave ring marks on your scope like the steel rings will. You don't need to shim bases or lap the rings in when you mount the scope. If for some reason you need more elevation or windage a set of offset rings are available to compensate for that.
    As for as mounts I would use the Leupold universal mounts.
    Using the above mounts and rings make mounting a scope very easy.
    They hold very well also. I've got them on my 300 ultra mag, a 375 ultra mag and a 458 Lott and have had no problems.
