I you want to save some money but have a legit tactical type rig i would tell you to go with the Warne 20 MOA picatinney rail base and then Leupold PRW rings. The whole set would run you around $120 or so, about the same as alot of those other bases. Leupold and NF rings have a great look to them and the locking nut makes it easier to take them off but honestly i think the PRW rings are just as strong.

Oh and +1 for the fellow Okie's!! when is this damn state gonna cool down, 107 deg in El Reno this last weekend!!!!

take it easy

Your preachin' to the chior on the heat dude! my new job has me out in it 95% of the time but I'd like to go do some shooting without sweating my @$$ off! good thing about the heat is that I know my 243 load will not go POOF before it hits the target got out and banged some steel 2 weekends ago and noon it was 102.

Steve, I might need to give you a shout on a Nightforce scope, do I get a good guy discount? Later,

I agree the Leupold PRW rings are strong but I'm not a fan of Warne bases their rings are nice. Again the PRW rings will work for a lot of shooters.

What makes the MK4, Badger, and Nightforce rings so nice besides there finish, and the quality of machining, is the fact you can take off the scope put and put it back on with a 65 to 68 In/LB Torque Wrench and it will return to 0.
