I just don't see the need for quick release rings. It seems that you run more of a risk of accidentally loosening your scope by catching the lever than by needing to change your scope under field conditions - since I don't change scopes in the field, I can wait and find my torque wrench.

Double ditto on nixing the QRW's. BTW, there have been a couple reported failures of the QRWs on 50 BMGs mounting heavy NightForce optics.
My vote for rings are the Burris Xtreme Tactical 30mm
with the massive 6-screw mount. I have them on all my 50 BMGs (with 36oz NF optics). At about $45/pair - I don't know why you'd buy anything else.
