Choosing Scope Mounts & Rings.

That's a pretty broad question. Best for what? What type of scope are you using? What type of shooting do you do? Hunting, competition target, military/LE sniping?

I've always had good luck and been happy with standard milled steel Leupold bases and rings, and thats what I have on most of my hunting rifles. Although one of my rifles has Weaver rings and mounts. Personally I think shooters place way too much emphisis on rings and mounts, and spend way too much money on them than they really need to.

I have a friend who bougth some aluminum Leupold Rifleman rings and mounts to go with his Rifleman scope a couple years ago. He said they were pretty inexpensive and he hasn't had any problems with them at all.

Avoid detachables on anything but a safari rifle. If used on a long range hunting rifle, you'll be resetting your zero all the time.

My deer rifles use Weaver style bases and Burris Signature Zee rings. My target rifles and used to be safari rifle use Ken Farrell rings and bases.
