SPS Tactical guidance please

I have spend countless hours scouring the net for rifle reviews to decide what Tactical rifle I needed to buy, I finally came to the conclusion that the Remington 700 SPS Tactical in 308 is the gun for me:D

So about a week ago I finally located one over here in Sydney Australia, for $1200AU, which is a great deal over here, but still close to two weeks wages. So I put a deposit on this beauty, as it is the perfect addition to my gun cabinet, to be used for long range Deer hunting, as well as culling feral Pigs and Goats in the Aussie Bush.

I am currenty waiting for my permit to aquire to be processed, to be able to take possesion of my new toy.

In the mean time I have purchased a Leupold Mark 4, 6.5-20X50mm LR/T M1 Scope for it.

Now for my Questions:

1) Does anyone here have the same combo of rifle and scope??

2) Can anyone recommend a scope base and rings to use for this set up, I want the scope mounted as low as possible on the rifle, with the bell only just clearing the barrel.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, and feel free to post photos if you have the same or similar set up.

Hi mate,

nice choice, currently I have sps-tac with the same scope, I am using a warne 20moa base and I managed to pickup off some cheap leupold mark 4 rings. Before that I was using warne fixed rings. They all seem good. I have also put on a hs stock about a month ago and that makes a world of difference. Send us your email and I will send you some pics
