Scope for R1
I'm thinking of getting a scope for the R1 in 300Win. Seeing what the rifle cost, I don't want to spend millions on a scope and mounts. What would you suggest in terms of mounts and scope or the R1?
This one is easy - the "old standby", a Leupold 3-9x40 VXII. Or any similar scope by Ziess or Nikon. The Swarovski's, unfortunately, are out of reach. But if you can stretch a bit, there's the larger (50mm) Leupolds, assuming you're gonna use them for longer ranges with the .300
As for mounts, the DeadNutz mounts (out of Sanford, NC) or the Talley mounts are provably best. These are one-piece units (the base and the bottom rings are one piece) and actually, the whole thing is machined in one piece and then the rings are split precisely into bottom and top halves.
The DeadNutz mounts are made for specific rifles, including the R1. They also come in three heights (low, medium, high), with each one being 1/8" higher than the other.
