Tally rings any good?

I was looking at these today I like the way they look. Has anyone used them on there LR rig I was thinking of using them on my 260rem with my Horus vision scope.

I have not used them on a long range rig but I do use them on my large cal dangerous game guns. They are very strong and they always stay in place. I love them. There might be better ones for long range uses that I have no experience with.

I have them on my A-bolt 7WSM. I have been extremely happy with them, lightweight and strong.

They are a PITA to lap and if you don't believe they need to be I can show you 2 high dollar scopes with dented tubes.

I had issues with a wandering zero and recently replaced two sets for the Nightforce direct mounts. All is well again.

I've also twisted off the heads of the cross/clamp screws (with a torque wrench I might add) more times than I care to admit.

Talley's customer service is top notch and there is something to be said for that. Good product but I don't believe they are ideal for big scopes on violent recoiling rifles.

Guess I should clarify I used their one piece rings and base combo. They were tougher than Burris rings to lap in. I can't speak to any of their other products.

Talley one piece ring and base are as good as it gets for an affordable scope mounting system. I have them on two of my rifles. If they are good enough for Weatherby and NightForce to put in their paperwork they have to be good. Bill Maylor.

Re: Tally rings any good?

The ones I've seen aren't a precise glove fit aroung the scope tubes. They seem to be designed to flex a bit to fit to the scope tube, which is probably why some are saying they're a bear to lap in.

A good lightweight ring all in all, but I wouldn't overtighten them because they aren't a glove fit.
