Gun is a Remmy SPS Tactical in .308. Scope will be Vortex Viper PST FFP 6-24x50. Yardage will be 100yds up to 1,000yds. Is a 20MOA mount required for the 1,000yds? If yes, what's the best bang for my buck (I don't need the best but don't want junk)? Thanks!

With that scope it's not required but I would go ahead and put a 10 MOA or 20 just to keep the elevation closer to center if that makes sense.
Talley or EGW are good and not priced to bad

Weather you need it will depend on bullet and velocity

If you are just putting together i would get a 20 moa just to be on the safe side. I would look at the larue bases.

I already have a DNZ 1 piece mount but would get a 20 MOA if it's truly needed.

What bullet and velocity than?

On my old 308 I could get to 1200 but would have to need to hold a couple of mils on the reticle

That scope has 65 MOA (so you would have half that to work with)of elevation so depending on bullet and barrel length you are on the borderline of reaching 1000 with a zero base.
My 308 load takes 34 MOA to 1000 give or take and if you chose the mil version although your scope could have Holy water applied by Fireman it would still be borderline as it has 19 mil so half that is 9.5 and a 308 is about 10 mil to 1000 agin depending on variables
Oh and I have both MOA and Mil on my .308's and I just ran Shooter with my data with today's condtions to check the numbers

So that should be 39-40 moa drop according to my calc. So without a base you will have to do a reticle holdover

That bullet won't make it to 1000, it'll go sub-sonic around 850-900, then start to yaw. Switch over to a 178 A-max and it'll get there.

The scope is built to be mounted on a 20 MOA base, so you might as well get one. When zeroed at 100 your turret should be on the first rev line, giving you several revs of up-travel.

EGW aluminum one piece 20 MOA pic rail for about $60 through SWFA.com or MidwayUSA.com. They've screwed right on every Rem 700, Savage, Tikka, ect I have installed them on.

Is the 178gr not too heavy for the 20" bbl? Btw, I'm still trying to get Buddy to go shoot. Thanks!

Both my .308's have 20 inch barrels and with the 175gr Sierra Tipped they get to a 1000 with the above mentioned dial ups no problem at all.

You could use the phenomenon that is the 155 gr. Lapua Scenar. Enough BC to get to 1000, and gains a ton of muzzle velocity over the 175, 178 gr. offerings.

I would probably go that route if I had a long 28-30 inch barrel myself.
