While it's true a 7mm-08 doesn't generate an insane amount of recoil, and doesn't need a super beefed up mount, it's also true that a quality scope deserves a quality mounting system. With a good scope like that, why mount it in something only so-so? Can't go wrong with any Leupold base and ring combo. I've used the Leupold STD base and ring setup (with the friction fit front ring, and windage adjustable rear ring) on the heavy kickers with no issues ever. I've also become a fan of the DNZ Game Reaper one piece mount. Absolutely rock solid, and impossible for anything to come apart obviously.
