I need some advice on choosing a scope base. Bought a new CZ 457 Varmint. Am putting it in a KRG Bravo and mounting a Diamond Back Tactical 6-24x50 MOA on it. Trying to decide which Area 419 base I need. Choice is between a 15 MOA and a 30 MOA. The Club I belong to limits 22 LR to 100 yards. Plan on zeroing at 50 yards. Which base would suit my needs the best.

    if your real limit is going to be 100yds on this rifle, you don't have to account for very much drop.

    Tell your club to quit being fudds.


    More than likely you can use the 30moa, 15moa should be no issues. If you will never go past 100 you can just get a flat base instead of paying extra for an angled.

    I'd do the angled rail just so I could shoot farther other places.
