Leupold Mark 4 Rings, Al vs Steel?

Gonna buy the Mark 4 one piece 15moa tilt steel base and trying to decide if I should buy the Aluminum rings or the steel! Suggestions/Thoughts? at this point I am pretty sure it will be a Zeiss 4-14x50 mil dot/target turret scope on it. Rem 700 SPS Tac .308.

THANKS!

I have a set of alum. M4'S, but I prefer the clean lines of the Seekins, sold on this site, w/out the 1/2 nut sticking out.

I would go steel rings, I like to match up the metals on bases and rings so one isn't softer than the other. I have seen issues mixing aluminum and steel in mounting sytems.I have a Mark 4 base on one of my rifles with TPS steel rings,very happy with it.
