I'm using a set of high Burris extreme rings and a Vortex Viper on mine. Very happy with it so far. It hasn't moved and tracks great.

I needed to add some MOA to my setup as there were no optional rails with additional MOAat the time
so i went with these with excellent results

I'm running a rock river 1 piece w/ a Leupold vari-x III 6.5-20. I have a 30moa rail.

Take warranty/customer service into consideration when scoping a 50. :)

How much $ do you have budgeted for your scope and mount(s)? How much you plan to spend will help lay out your potential choices.

I plan to use the LaRue LT-107 and a Nightforce NXS – either the 5.5-22x56 or the 8-32x56 if I can ever make up my mind and get all the cash together at one time…

I put a Nightforce NXS 8-32 X 56 with Nightforce rings and I'm very pleased with the set up.

I've been using this set of rings for over 10 years with the same Burris scope on my LAR
