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.

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.

Stopped using Leo DD's & moved away from the old windage adjustable Leo's loooong time ago, and moved almost everything into Warne Maxima's, except a set of steel Burris tipoff's on a 70's Marlin BA rimfire, a set of period Weaver steel on a 70's era Marlin 39D, and a set of Talley Lwt's on a T3 6.5Swede Superlite.

** If anyone is still using the Tikka Factory rings, and is skeptical of the factory ring cap screws holding ft lbs of torque, lemme know...I went thru that with my 1st T3 and solved the problem with some steel screws...and got a few left over.

I use Badger and Ken Farrell rings and like both a lot. No issues. Badger unmount always returns to zero if torqued the same.

What is your objection to Dual Dovetails?
