Hi all, new to the forum and I recently ordered a Marlin XL7C 30-06. This is my first centre fire rifle and since I got a wedding and house to save for could only afford the marlin, plus I really like the camo print. BTW I live in Australia and the rifle is going to cost me around the $680AUS mark. I have purchased a Bushnell Elite 4200 3x9-40 from the states as its half the price then here in OZ. When I get the rifle I am wanting to replace the factory fitted single base mount with two piece weaver base mounts and weaver 49143 medium rings which I will be getting from the states also. My question is has anyone used these rings and does the bolt clear the scope?
