most people would say go with Aluminum rings. That said, I went with Warne permanent attach rings. I think they are really good rings, and the low rings work great with my 6-24X50 PST. I use an EGW 20 MOA base with them on a Savage with a heavy sporter barrel.

1. Mod 10 270WSM - 1 piece steel Ferrel base $100, Burris XTR rings $50 - will shoot 0.75 MOA with several loads after a lot of load work

2. Mod 110 6.5x284 - 1 piece EGW aluminum base $30, TMS Rings $25 - will shoot 0.50 MOA with every 140gr load I have tried

I think the 6.5x284 is inherently more accurate than the WSM, but the lower cost aluminum EGW base and TMS aluminum tactical rings are doing their part at a much lower cost. The TMS rings can be found on Amazon. I feel that the aluminum rings are fine as long as you stick with the large tactical type. I like to keep them matched to an aluminum 1 piece base. They would be out of place on a classic style rifle, but look just fine on the Savage mod 10.
