Re: Vortex Viper Pst on large caliber

I agree with sidecarflip on having heavy duty rings for hvy mag. calibers are the way to go! I would say for a hunting platform a good set of dual dove tail rings and bases or the Warne Stell rings and bases are all that is needed and if the platform is going to be for military/hvy useage then your other choices are many so it's up to personal preferance.

    The only detraction that I can see in the Warne Maxima Steel ring sets is the difficulty in lapping for concentricity, contact area and alignment because they are vertically split. Horizontally spit rings sets are easy to lap and align because the lower ring section is actually a cradle for the lapping/alignment bar whereas the Warne vertical split presents no cradle.

    They are still capable of being lapped and aligned but the procedure is different.

    I have the 6X24 PST on my Savage 110 FCP and have about 200 rounds down the tube with no issues or movement at all. I am using the burris Xtreme tactical rings, and everything is rock solid.
