one piece bases vs two piece mounts?

Having 1 piece scope mounts compared to a 2 piece that much better?

Example: Seekins 1 piece rings and bases are aluminum just like the Talley's 2 piece, and some other Mfr's. How much importance does the Aluminum one piece have over the 2 piece?

Any opinions?

Re: one piece bases vs two piece mounts?

Some will claim that a 1 piece base is stiffer, or helps to stiffen the action on heavy recoil rifles. I use to have one piece bases on all my rifles for that reason, but have converted to the Tallry singles with no problems or loss of accuracy whatsoever. I would suggest whatever you get your greatest benefit is going to come from a proffesional lapping the rings and makeing sure they are absolutley straight.

+1. I have changed mounting types from 1 to 2 and 2 to 1 on various rifles and cannot correlate any accuracy differences. I do prefer a 2 pc on a bold action for looks.

Let me add that I have come to like the 1 pc CNC machined mount/rings by Dednutz. The rings are perfectly aligned and you do not have to worry about the interface or ring alignment of 2 pc mount/rings.

not to hijack the thread, but where do you get deadnutz rings and basses? (It sounds like I am walking right into a practicale joke)
