    I have decided to go with the Leupold rings mounted directly to the Sako style dovetails. I got a good deal on an old Leupold Vari-X III 6.5x20x40 gloss. I should have the rifle by Monday or Tuesday of next week. I'm sure I will have many more questions-thanks for all the info I already have gotten. This is a friendly forum with people willing to help. Glad I found it and thanks for the warm welcome. Barry

    I was being facetious about the Conetrol rings. They are a bit challenging to mount and more challenging to get the crosshair plumb as you tighten them down, but they are quality-made and very clean looking once mounted due to the ingenious (if frustrating) projectionless ring design.

    GLOSS LEUPOLD SCOPES and vintage GLOSS SAKO RINGS: I have gloss Leupold 3.5-10 x 40 AO and 3.5-10 x 50 scopes both with (and a 2nd x40 without) already mounted gloss Sako rings if I can help someone out. Sorry, I lost track of who was looking for what.

    The 6.5-20x is an excellent choice for your rifle. I have that scope on a custom heavy barrel L46 in .222 and I think it's perfect. The 20x is great for shooting off the bench and you can dial it back as conditions require. The 40mm objective will clear the barrel in traditional Sako high rings if you change your mind about the rings.

    Got my L46 222 yesterday. Have not had a chance to even hold it other than inspection at FFL. The seller did not exaggerate-99% condition. When I have the time and get scope mounted I will make some pictures. I am sure to have more questions. Thanks. Barry
