Pardon my ignorance, fellow Bayou Shooters, but I need some scope mounting advice.
Looking for a set of decent quality detachable 1" rings (medium height) to mount a new scope to the rail atop my newly acquired Remington 700 SPS Tactical. 308 rifle. Not many choices left in NOLA sporting good stores this time of year, but one of the Academy stores does have a set of detachable (thumb-screw version) Leupold rings made for the Ruger M77 rifle.
What's the difference in size or application, since I always thought the Ruger rifle receiver comes already machined to accept "Weaver-style" rings in the first place?
Does anybody else in the NOLA area carry a decent selection/supply of scope rings post-hunting season, or do I need to plan another drive to Cabela's in Gonzales?
I like Leupold for quality and affordability, naturally; also hearing good things about Warne rings but I haven't seen them selling anywhere local.
I'll be moving around today so any feedback you can send by E-mail versus P/M's is appreciated.
Thanks in advance...
