Howa 1500 Talon .308 Base Rings and Scope

Hi everyone,

the following questions have probably been asked zillions of times but I had hard time finding answers in the forum, so here I am.
ok, my new rifle is a Howa 1500 Talon Varminter with a #6 contour 24in barrel chambered in .308W. It came with a packaged scope/rings/base that I do not care very much for. Scope is a Nikko Stirling Nighteater 4-16x44 that will find his way right away on one of my .22 as the rifle is a little too nice for the scope quality. Rings are also Nikko and really ugly. The base is a -guess what: Nikko!- picatinny style that I do not think fir very well the rifle lines.
SO! The scope is going to be a Nikkon/Weaver/Millet in the $400 range.
Would anybody care to give his/her thought regarding base and rings? (and scope while we're at it) I do like Burris for their product quality, finish and looks.
Shoot away!
