Pick your scope first then determine your rail needs. Get a zero moa rail and Burris XTR II signature rings. The rings allow up to 40 moa which would compensate for the 20 moa on the rail. My Delta Stryker has 110 MOA elevation while my Kahles K624 TT has about 35 MOA of elevation, so you can see that the rail requirements differ with each scope. You need about 30 MOA of elevation for 1000 yards with a 100 yard zero.

A brake isnt really necessary for a hunting rifle.. but the rifles i sit down and shoot 70 or 80 rounds in a session they sure are appreciated.. even the 6.5 creedmoor.. yes their loud and obnoxious and not very neighbor friendly but they serve their purpose.. its funny when shooting at game a guy never even feels the recoil in the heat of the moment.. sit down and shoot a 100 rounds.. you will feel that.. lol

My friend Jim has a Bergara Wilderness Terrain 300 PRC with brake. He screwed up a couple of months ago and touched one off at some feral hogs without hearing protection. Killed the hogs but his ears were ringing for a couple of days. Mentioned on another thread that the only one I leave the brake on is the wife's 270 WSM. Recoil is not that bad without it and will work at getting her to shoot it w/o the brake.

The 0 MOA rail will get to 600 easy. Possibly 1000 if the scope has enough travel however I would get the 20 MOA to be sure you're covered to 1000. The 20 MOA will get you out as far as maybe 1500 or more again depending on how much travel the scope has.

How far can a 0 moa rail take you? A 20 moa? I am going to get my son a Savage Model 10 GRS 6.5 Creedmoor when he graduates from the police academy and I want to get it right the first time..we simply dont have enough open ground here to take shots past 600 yards....BUT if he wanted to travel and would have the chance to do so I would like to have him set up for that...I know there are variables here...lets hear it!

No problem Dave....not taking any of this personally.....we're all trying to gain the best understanding we can. I just put this out as a data point from someone pretty well respected in the industry. I agree, it is not a large data set to base a final conclusion on but it is a data point none the less. He is not arguing that the best SD is the answer but it was a measurement method to evaluate his results for the test he defined. Bryan published a lot of test cases in his book to try to put some measurement to many of the things we do.
Out challenge is to take all of the data and our experience and make some sense of it all......
