Warne Ramp Mount

Recommended Posts

Anyone familiar with these? I'm contemplating putting one on my .308 build, for the purpose of running a 45-degree backup red-dot; something like the Burris Fastfire (why? Because of deer drives and -100 yard running shots). Anywho, any input on reliability/functionality is appreciated!

Seems a shame to drive deer when you can use a rifle, be safe! Warne is good stuff, never hear complaints about their stuff unless someone orders the wrong height for their rig.

Had one. Think I sold it to Magwa with a scope? I liked it. You can remove the "ramp" you aren't using. Only issue I ran into was the windage knob obscured about 1/3 of the window of the RDS. it was still totally usable and I'm sure you will get different results depending on the optics you choose.

Those mounts are very popular with the '3 gun' crowd and those folks can be some picky MF'ers!

I shoot 3gun and didn't like this mount s much. As the other poster said, the windage knob obstructed much of the red dot window. Currently use a Warne extended skeletonized mount and a Daniel Defense offset red dot mount. The DD mount puts the dot at a slightly lower position so my red cleared the turrets of my scope. 

If I used a different scope, it may not have been an issue. I was using a Vortex Viper PST 2.5-10x32 FFP scope. The windage turrets on that scope stick out pretty far. But recently picked up a Burris XRTII 1.5-8 duel focal plane scope. The Vortex is now going to go on the 308 AR I am building.

Most 3 gunners are using a 1-4, 1-6  or 1-8 scope, that 2.5-10 is a big scope for 3 gun! Semper Fi devildog!:thumbup:

I shoot Open Division which allows me to have a scope and an offset red dot. I have been running higher powered optic for a while. A couple of the big name sponsored shooters have been as well. Many are starting to see the advantage on some of the longer stages. We don't need 1 power like the other divisions do.

  I want to try one of those & have been looking , just not sure it will bring the scope high enough for my Cheek weld . Its measurement is 1.4" center of Scope from Rail , I use extra high rings on all my AR's  , which works out to 1.5" & don't want to put $$ into a mount that won't work for me .

 It sounds like that 1/10" is not much of a deal , but spending time looking for a sight picture , is not to my liking .

Honestly depends on the person. Using that height of a mount, I have the cheek riser on my PRS stock up a few clicks to get me were I want to be.
