Re: I need help. Question on Scope rings.
I have used the aluminum Tally two piece rings with the interval bases on my 6.5x284 Cooper. They have worked OK but they do need to be lapped for good contact and are not very durable. A few years ago my rifle took a severe blow from a fall impacting the bell of the scope, and the bases were deformed. The scope was fine , but my hunt was finished with that rifle. Overall, I am not a fan of traditionally styled ring/base mounts. While I have a rifle that has the Burris Z rings, I am skeptical of using plastic in the ring mount. It is very difficult to control the physical properties of plastic.....brittleness, temperature stability, etc. My tactical and LR shooters use steel bases and rings. All my rifles have either NF or Mark4 bases, and Mark4 rings. I agree with a prior post that the Nightforce base with the integral recoil lug is a superb design, particularly for the magnums. They might be costly, add weight, and be overkill, but I feel the added confidence and reliability is well worth the trade offs. IMHO.
