    Hi,
    Would think a visit with Leupold directly or a respected and known dealer would give you several sort-it-out possibilities.
    Luck,

    If you are going to use Optilock bases and rings check this out. Get your caliper out and measure the outside of you objective lens on your scope. Take in to account that your varmint barrel may be a tad larger in diameter also.

    If you are going to use a rail and picatinny rings check out any ring site that you want to use.

    Thanx for replies,should have stated would also like to keep weight down a bit.The T3X varmint isnt too bad but all adds up after a long night and it will be used for hunting as well.I have Optilock two piece mounts on a M591 LH,good mounts.That one still comes in lighter than the varmint weight bare.Was hoping to use Optilock one piece ring mounts but they are too low.Going to try some Talley alloy one piece(med),they tell me will fit with (my measurments say it must be real close ).Also pisked up some Optilock ringmounts for my L579 thought would give the old girl a birthday and get rid of the Hilvers (Aussie made,solid but ugly as a flattend goanna)Avalability can be a problem down here at the moment,no covid isnt bad but
