I'm looking for something a little more light and elegant than the removable 2-piece bases that I prefer but still want something strong that will hold up when it hits the dirt (which it will).
I'm not familiar with the DMZ mounts but have recently switched to the dual dove tail two piece scope base and rings on a 338 RUM. You'll need something that strong, or better, even if it never hits the dirt
I'd suggest the single piece base even though I got the two piece. They were just more available.
My goto rifle hit the dirt, trees and lava rock more than once and even with the screw type windage base and ring there was never a problem.......
