Help me choose rings and bases.

I purchased a Zeiss 4.5X14 Conquest scope about a month a ago with the help of your advice.

I have a remington chambered for a .280 and was wondering what you guys would recommend. Any of you use QD style of rings and if so would you recommend them?

Re: Help me choose rings and bases.

I'm partial to the Picatinny type bases and rings. EGW makes a good inexpensive 1 piece base and you can go with TPS or Vortex rings to keep costs down. I use Seekins Precision base/rings myself and they are rock solid. I guess it depends on how solid a mount you need. I wouldn't trust any kind of QD rings to hold a perfect zero on and off. The Talley 1 pc. bases/rings are popular too.

moombaskier,

thanks for your advice. I am looking at purchasing a EGW base and looking at the TPS and Vortex rings. Just wondering what model of TPS rings were you recommending?

Re: Help me choose rings and bases.

The TSR Alloy are good to go. Make sure you get the Picatinny style and not the Weaver style. The Vortex/Seekins Precision Rings are a bit more $$, but they are also beefier. That scope also has a 1" tube, so if you are planning on dialing your come ups then you should get a 10 if not a 20MOA canted base. That is if you are wanting to shoot out to 1000yds. Without the canted base you will run out of adjustment on your scope at maybe 700yds?
