    Wanted--Optilock bases and rings 30mm

    Wanted for Sako 75 30mm rings and bases for 56mm scope. (not sure whether I need low or medium bases the chart seems to say that lows are fine.)
    Cheers George

    I could be interested in the others if the first offer leaves a set spare.

    Thanks

    Just for piece of mind, lows are what you want. Still enough room for clearance with Butler Creeks on.

    No idea why Sako/optilock sell medium or highs they just make your set up look crap.

    Cheers

    Because Europeans tend to favour a higher hogsback stock and correspondingly hold a more upright mount to the rifle.

    They also like the ability to still look under the scope in order to use the fixed sights when shooting close range driven game.

    They are still much too high Stan. You have plenty of latitude with the lows.

    Also you can't see your iron sights on a rifle with the optilocks irrespective of height.

    Jon2,

    The Poles I shoot with reckon it's the same as shotgunning. You still see the side of the gun but aren't looking at it. Focus is on the running target 50 - 80 feet away. Both eyes open, swing through and lead. You need a high mounted scope so as to "see" under it.
