Scope Rings

With all the different brand of scope rings on the market it gets harder to make a choice of which one to use.
I've been looking at Lueopold, Burris Signature Z, Warne,Talley and Zeiss.
The Rings I decide on will go on a 300wby. with a Zeis Conquest 4.5-14x44AO.
Dollar for dollar which are the best?

    Burris Signature Zee rings are all that I'll buy anymore. They are great rings.

    Seekins or Vortex(same rings as far as I can tell just different package). I have been rec. burris zee rings also. I just like a little more heavier ring.

    I wish they made the signature rings in low & I would be all over them. I might try shimming the rear base on dual dovetail mounts.

    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.

    I've used:

    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.
