A good rail for a remington 700..?
Looking for your suggestions on a good rail for a Remington 700 so I can mount a scope on it later..

The only one I saw at the store was a 20 MOA rail by Nightforce for $115

La rue makes a good rail for like 75 bucks.

I like Ken Farrell rails,but also have a couple Weaver's and EGW's. They all work great.

Midway carries a bunch of them.

+1 on the Farrell rails.

I decided to go with the 20 MOA Nightforce rail...

Got great reviews online and wasn't too expensive..

JB weld is used to bed the base to the action.
I own a model 788 Remington 308. I wanted a picatinny rail to mount my scope on it. I was stuck with buying a EGW. I got it in 20 moa so I could stretch the 308 out a bit. I used JB weld to bed the base to the action. I used 8541 tactical scope base install instructions. Google will get you were to the site. I have not shot out past 300 yet as I have mot had time to get to a range any farther.
The reason why I bedded my base was the EGW did not fully meet the action with out a gap. I shot the gun before I bedded the base and it was all over the place. Talked to a friend and he suggested bedding it. Now it is a great shooter out to 300 so far.
Good luck and hope this helps

If you can see. This is the back of the base where I bedded it...

I posted in the wrong thread. I was addressing the op post asking a question about installing a scope base on a 700. Whoops. Sorry!
If a mod could move it I would appreciate it.
