Re: Scope Rings
For me, it is an application dependend situation. On my lower recoiling rifles or rifles that don't get the crap kicked out of them I really like the Signature Zee rings. On my heaving recoiling magnums or "field" guns, I move on to heavier duty rings with an increased clamping surface area.
Burris XTR's- For the $$ amount, there decent, but lower on the totem pole.
Leupold MK4- Only ring i've ever seen that broke due to over torquing
TPS- Not much surface area but very well built.
NightForce- 'nuff said
My current favorite ring is made by American Rifle Company. They're expensive but have really fit the bill for me, I will be ordering more in the future.
PS- I was told that Seekins makes the Vortex Rings.
