Greetings to everyone here, have been reading these boards for a little bit but only recently joined and wanted to ask a question of some of you very knowledgable shooters.


I have a Remington SPS in .308, I want to place a picatinny rail on it with some decent rings that can absorb recoil well. The scope is a bushnell and uses 1 inch scope rings.

Just curious if anyone would be willing to point me towards some good picatinny rails & ring combo's that work well on the Rem 700.

Thank you,

Kludo

Edited to add:

Got a harris bi-pod on order, Im looking for a sling.. saw a few in the links to the 700 resources. Not really anything I care for, Im a sinch in shooter and Im a lefty.. I dont like bulky/thick slings, prefer more of a hasty style sling... any suggestions? Something that will use the adaptor on the Harris and the normal sling stud on the 700.

Edited again to also add:

My Remington 700 SPS .308 has a floor plate (internal magazine) this means it is a BDL right? Also are the SPS series rifles considered long or short action? Or is that decided by the caliber of the weapon ?

Welcome to 700Rifle and hope you will enjoy it here :D

ok for the scope base you can look at the EGW 0 MOA or the EGW 20 MOA there real good for the price........
and from what i read the 30mm scope tubes have more field of view over the 1"

as for the actions well the .308 is a short action because its a shorter round the 3-06 is a long action because its a longer shell....
the .338 Lapua is a long action, the .243 is a short action .................... its pretty much based on the type of round you want to shoot
is what will change the action from short to long or long to short...... now you cant modify a action to make a long or short...... but you can do this
like the Army's M24 it has a long action with a .308 chamber and running .308 indstead of a longer round like the 30-06 or the .338 Lapua.

Weaver tactical bases and rings are of good quality as well,the company has really turned itself
around in its offering and quality,I have the rings mounted on 4 of my rifles and have been pleased,
they are also less exspensive, than some of the others, however my favorite rings are still Burris
tactical.The Weavers however,are about 1/2 the price and they do have the bases in 20 moa and
extended length,all my rifles have Weaver bases on them.some however have the Burris rings
which I still think are the best tactical rings at any price.check out Weaver at their website they also have some great new scope offerings,now that ATK has the rings,bases, and scopes all under their ownership again along with AR parts,they appear to be getting into the aluminun maching
bussiness aggresivly.I think they are going to be a player in this tactical market.

Sling,

Get a TIS. Good slings. http://www.tacticalintervention.com/

Rings,

Burris XTR, TPS TSR/HRT, NF, Leupold, etc are all good. I run TPS and Burris XTRs.

Your rifle is a Short Action.

Thank you everyone for your responses. I have just started my jump into the long distance marksmanship arena and I wanted to get set up with a nice little package to get going.

Here is what I decided on:

A sling from TIS.

Scope base and rings from Weaver, to go with Bushnell Elite scope I already have and a Harris bi-pod.

I think it will be good as a starter off of the SPS base.

Thank you everyone for your help!

This may be a silly question but if I was to get a Bushnell Elite 3200 10x40mm scope and Egw 20 moa rail, what would be the best size rings?

Medium height would be a good choice.
