Default Watch for enough tube length on your scope...

The Win 70 long action has some distance between the mounting holes for the scope mounts. On mine I have always had the reversible front and rear Redfield style bases. These give you the option of bringing your scope rings farther back toward you. With the double dovetail system it is stronger but you may not have as much choice in the scope's position. Some scopes have long tubes with a straight tube length of over 6 inches. As long as you don't go real large with the front objective you have alot of adjustment to play with. Most people are not as fussy as I am about getting a scope positioned back toward me.
