Going to purchase a Win. 52 BR rifle. My question is what mounts are available to get me enough moa to 200 yards?

What bases does it have currently? If it has a Weaver style base the easiest thing to do is us Burris Signature Zee rings with the 20 moa offset inserts.

I took a Davidson one piece base for my 40x and put .020" of shim at the rear screw. I then used Devcon to bed the rest of the base at the front and rear reciever rings. Just lightly snug the front most and rear most screws down. I put shoe polish on the receiver rings and on the bottom of the scope base so I can convert the base back to flat in the future. This base got mounted to it's second receiver on Friday and shot in a LR BR Silhouette match on Saturday morning. I robbed the scope off my 40x centerfire BR rifle and didn't have to move the rings on the scope.

Scope. We have a 200 yard match in Burbank every 5 weeks.

I believe they are what came with it from the factory. Attached to barrel.

You probably can just place .020" of shim stock under the rear ring and be good to go. Actually, looking at that pic, I would wind the elevation all the way down and then add enough shim stock you get you close at 100 yds. Then you would have all the elevation adj available. There is a lot of moa needed to get to 200 yds.
