    Hey guys,

    Looking for a nice one piece 20 MOA pic rail for my latest build. Rem 700 SA. Possibly looking for one with built in lug that fits inside the loading port. What's your favorite brand? Thanks guys.:D:D

    Farrell. They are taller than most which allows you to use shorter rings. There rings are also very well made.

    If weight is a concern, NF base and ring combo are a few oz lighter.

    Egw are good for a budget. Put some dowel pins in there like stiller does with the bigger t8 screws too and you wont have any issues

    Murphy Precision in Fallbrook Ca makes nice ones in both stainless and titanium. He also has custom services if you want something a little different.

    The The Contessa Picatinny Rail is definitely my first choice.

    On my last 2 builds, I have gone with the EGW base and have had no problems.

    Is something like the 10 moa or 20 moa base a detriment if you don't need it? In other words given a choice for no difference in cost is it better to have the extra adjustments and not need it than to need it and not have it?

    The 10, 20, & 30 moa bases just optimize scope adjustment at longer distances. So the answer to your question is really no detriment.

    Think of the scope as a circle. Hey, it is. Now think of vertical and horizontal adjustments as a square. That’s what they are. So you have a square of adjustment in a circle of scope. You should have as much adjustment as possible both vertically and horizontally. Stray from having the center of adjustment dead center and you lose adjustment in one direction whether it is at the top, bottom, left, or right in the circle. Your field of adjustment turns from a square to a rectangle. Is it a biggie? Not really unless you need adjustment due to outside factors such as the rings or rail are off center. I’m not even sure of what my point was when I started this post.

    Seekins if looking to save weight, Nightforce if weight is a non issue......

    I'm nearing the end of a project and the Murphy Precision base caught my eye. I likely won't be shooting the distances where it might come in handy. Also I believe it's best to operate as close to the scope's mechanical center as you can so using one with 20 MOA would mean 80 clicks in elevation adjustment right out of the gate. Murphy offers 0, 10 and 20 MOA bases all at the same price so buying once would mean?

    Unfortunately it doesn't appear that they offer stainless steel screws with the SS bases.

    I had one awhile back that had a small recoil tab as you described. Weaver IIRC
    Maybe Warne

    I like the aluminum standard duty NightForce one piece pic bases. Only about $60 and straight as can be. Definitely drill and tap the receiver and bore the base out for 8-40 screws and stress free bed the rail to the action with Marine Tex, Devcon, or JB Weld. Solid as a rock. Pinning the base would be a bonus for big magnums but not really needed for most rounds that will fit inside a short action.
