4.

That paired with great rings, are strong as a blue nosed mule. You don't want to worry about base and rings throwing off your zero when they get banged around. And they get banged around quite a bit with me.

What rings do you like? Seems like Leupold PRW would be hard to beat for the price?

I like burris signature and the vertical talley's but will try others. Anyone have experience with farrell bases? He and EGW standard are the only 1 piece bases for Montana rifle co receiver.

Talley Tactical are my favorite aluminum rings. Badger Ordinance are my favorite steel rings. Both allow me to move scopes from one rifle to another quickly, accurately, and repeatedly. And both hold the scope exactly where I put it forever. I've got one scope in a set of rings that hasn't left those rings for five years. I've not had to re-torque the screws, and the scope and rings have been on five different rifles.

Warne offers a two-piece steel Weaver-style mount that would work. They're stout and not at all expensive. I use them with Zee rings and am very satisfied with them.

Zee rings are purdy good. Be sure and clean all the oil off of them. I've seen scopes slip in them, but that was on the big cartridges the rifles were chambered in.

Scope mounting is one of the things that you just don't want to cut corners on, it makes all the difference in the world. Don't take a short-cut just to save a few bucks.

A 1-piece picatinny rail + rings is the gold standard for a reason. Too many advantages to even list, even if you have no need to move them around as mentioned above...... My favorite is Seekins Precision.

What you spend on a good set of rings and bases will be saved in ammo costs chasing zero today and down the road. You have good advice from those ^^^^^^

Talley's for sure. They'll be rock solid and look nice

Any ring recommendations for the egw standard rail? I like the talley tactical but the recoil lugs dont span across the entire width and the egw rail has that gap in the center..seems like it might not lock up with 100% contact.

Are you shooting a 30mm Vulcan?
