RE: sako 85 scope mounts
I like the sako rings because they are A. made for the rifle and the scope is centered with the bore B. They are bulletproof and protect the scope finish.
If your scope has up to a 50mm objective you can get away with lows easily, I would opt for the Ringmounts(1pc) and if the scope is less then 50mm go with the extra low 2 piece rings which are now available. Then you'll have to determine what bases to get because of the scope length. Short bases for short tubes etc. Get a metric allen set at your local Lowes or HOme depot and use it to tighten the Sako ring screws. The wrench sako provides is made of soft stainless and will mess up the heads on the screws. Trust me at 4 dollars a screw you don't want to mess them up. Leupold mounts don't have a stop pin on the rear base and are nowhere as sturdy. Let me know what kind of scope your putting on it and I can give you more info.
