First post, a bit about myself; Im a Corporal in the Marine Corps with 5th Marines in Camp Pendleton, CA. Having said that Im no stranger to shooting (3rd award expert), but I have never owned a Rifle (though I do have a pistol;Glock 17). I have chosen a Rifle: Weatherby Vanguard synthetic, 30-06 (the 5+1): Synthetic | Weatherby.com And I have also chosen a scope: Blackhawk 1" Tactical (the 3.5-10x50) Cabela's: Blackhawk!® 1" Tactical Riflescopes I want versatility out of this setup, by which I mean, I want to have the ability to go hunting, as well as long distance shooting (thus the reason for the 3.5-10 mildot) Here is where you gentlemen (and ladies?) come in, if you will; I would like some help in choosing the proper mount and rings for this rifle and scope. Im looking for quality equipment here, so price really is not an issue (say 150-250 for both? But i will pay more if your advice tells me so) If I wasnt clear on something let me know and I will further explain. Thank you all very much in advance, I look forward to the knowledge.
