Just arrived today and I'm pretty stoked. Looking for suggestions on rings to mount this dude on my Remington 700 in 7mmMag.

Thanks!

First, get a picatinny scope base. Then buy quality rings like Seekins, TPS, or Talley Tactical.

I'd suggest a unimount that bolts directly to receiver for a hunting rifle. Simple, and strong. Nightforce makes one, see link below. Might be able to get away with the shorter one too. It won't be cheap, but it won't ever let you down.

Hawkins precision rings. They offer either pic style or ultra lite reciever mounts.

I have that exact rifle and scope 3-15x. I used Tally one piece low profile rings.

Thanks, everyone. I wound up getting Seekins rings. Just waiting on my gunsmith to let be bring the rifle over!

Seekins is a great way to go for rings. They also make the Vortex PMR rings for vortex, so if you can find one but not the other in the height you need, buy with confidence.

Seekins, Badger, or IOTA's, I have all of these and all are good. IOTA's are my favorite so far.

Yes, I need the old scope removed, picatinny rail installed, rings and scope mounted, scope boresighted, and I have a new trigger as well.
