Can anyone speak to a few questions I have in regards to a mounting a Zeiss Conquest V4 4-16 x 44 (30mm tube) on a Sako 85 Finnlight .300 WSM. Just purchased this gun. I'm a novice rifle hunter and I'm obsessivley maticous, so I need some help.

Mostly due to asthetics, I would prefer not to use Sako ring mounts or the Opti Lock mounts. I prefer matte (Sako does not make) and not blued finish. However, if that's the best option for performance, then I'm fine with it.

I would like to use the Zeiss mounts, but they only mount to a picatinny rail. I found a product that may seem to work made by Contessa Picatinny rail for that gun. Any good?

How about the Leupold mounts for this gun, any good?

From what I can tell, it seems that I sound use Medium mount is where I want to end up. Picatinny rails seem to come in different heights measured in MOA. 0, 10, 20... What would the combination be between sizes and lengths of picatinny rails and ring sizes? Also, should if this picatinny rail is a good, should I buy the extended length?

Thanks in advance!!!!

I like and use the Sako ringmounts on my Sakos, but I’ve heard some suggest a rail made by Near. You might look at their website, nearmfg.com

Good choice on rifles. I have an 85 Finnlight in .300wm and I love it. I used the Optiloc rings and bases and they're different than other rings for sure, but I really like the way they lock everything up. Depending on what you end up with, I have a set of silver 30mm Optiloc rings that I am not using and could cut you a deal on them. I had a 1" scope and wanted the blued rings around the scope anyway.

Thanks man. What size scope objective are you using? What size are the 30mm rings?
Any recommendations on ammo?
