Scope bases and rings. I'm gonna go see Santa and ask for a rifle scope. But I want to be sure I get what I want and what will work best for me. Rifle: .308 Western Field (Montgomery Wards) Mauser 98 bolt action. Purpose: Target at 200-300 yards likely with some side-betting against cocky friends My concern is more focused on the base mounts and rings. Is there any significant difference between 1 and 2 piece base mounts? Bases and/or rings: A guy at Sportsman's Warehouse said he would mount the base, rings and scope and using a bore laser set it for 25 yards. He has proposed a set of Leupold 2 piece base and Leupold 1" rings. They both mount with small set screws. There doesn't appear to be any way to remove the scope without removing some/all of the hardware. The mounts are not Dovetail which is what I think I want but don't know enough to warrant an argument. I do like some of the quick-mount rings but I don't know if they withstand the recoil. I don't have a preference but I'm thinking that if I want to remove the scope for some reason will it have to be re-calibrated when remounted? He suggested a Leupold 3X9-40MM VX-1 Scope for $219.00 or Leupold 3X9-40MM VX-1 Rifleman for $229.00. These prices seem reasonable from what I can find online.
