Is there any particular scope rings that you guys like to use, I have used Leopold rings in the past and they hold just fine, just looking for opinions on other options for my next gun.

I have/am using Leopold, DNZ one piece, Burris XTR and Talley tactical. Talley gets my vote, although I’ve never had an issue with any of them.

I will reach for Burris Signature's first. Love the posi-lok inserts.

Talley Tactical is my favorite.

Depends on the application. I wouldn't put them on a 338, but I've been using SWFA tactical rings on my 223 and 6.5 with zero issues. They cost like $30.

I've used every ring mentioned thus far, save the ARC brand, and have had no real issues with any of them, though I will never use Leupold DD or those gawd-awful rear windage adjustable garbage again.
My go-to are Seekins if I'm using a 1913 rail which is my preferred set up. Have been using them for as long as Glen has been making them. Think I have 10 pair in service now with a couple sets in the drawer. Always have spares for when I get a wild hair and grab a new scope I dont need.
Occasionally I'll use Talley lightweights on sporter weight rifles if trying to keep weight to a minimum.

Looks like the seekins are on backorder for the 1in that I would need, I’m going to try the Talley lightweights.

For me it varies with the rifle. A nice blued and walnut sporter gets Dual Dovetails or Zee rings with Warne steel bases. An Ar15 gets a QD type ring if I intend to run multiple optics, and I don't care what they look like. If I was shooting a .30-378 or some moderately powered rifle with a really heavy scope I'd be looking at the kinds of rings the LR guys like. I'll do anything to avoid having to use any setup with a windage-adjustable rear mount---those are total pieces of crap.

When someone has a bad shooting rifle, if it's wearing those, that's the first thing I point to.
