sheered off one of my rings
I was shooting my 338 win mag and the rear scope ring sheered off the base - Leupold rings and bases. It was commercial ammo, not hot loaded hand rolled. (225s not even 250s) The rings were new a year ago, and its only had about 100rds through it.. -- proving why I always bring a spare rifle when I go hunting.
I wanted to use the rifle for a bear hunt the first week of August, and need a hefty, strong set of rings to replace the ones that broke ASAP. So this is why I'm posting instead of using the search function. A couple of the older posts mentioned rings/bases that might take some time to get.
This isn't my long rang set up, but a lot of you do long range with heavy calibers, so I figured I would ask here.
So, anyone have a recommendation on an off the shelf, hefty set of rings and bases and a place to buy them online? They will need to fit a Browning A-bolt and take the punishment of 338 win mag.
