Picatinny or 1piece tally?

Putting a nightforce on my stw and I need to decide between a picatinny rail or the 1piece tally's.
If picatinny who makes the most accurate consistent? This is the order I was thinking of looking
Tally
Egw
Millet
Weaver

I want quality but I can't honestly pay $100+ for a base. I won't skimp if it's worth it. Someone tell me I can get a good base for a decent price

You can't get any of this stuff for 100 bucks but Near Mfg builds one of the best Picatinny rails on the market then it's downhill from there. Seekins is also right there with the Near. When installing have your smith bed the rail to the receiver (to align perfectly with the bore) then use quality rings.....Near, Seekins. Vortex.

I'm a fan of the 1 piece Talley, but that's also assuming that you don't need an MOA adjusted base.

The Talley 1 piece mounts don't connect to a rail, the whole base of the ring mounts directly to your rifle. That's one of the things I like about them. Less parts. BUT to the best of my knowledge they dont make 1 piece tally's that have an MOA correction, so they are great if you don't need that, but if you do then a Rail and more traditional rings is required.
