I use Warne one piece steel bases. This is a no brainer for me since Warne bases are manufactured in my state

Since Burris rings are steel. I use steel bases. Most interesting argument I heard in favor of this was that aluminum and steel expand at different rates when heated. So, I like the steel on steel on steel thing.

There are some good threads on this sight about mounting baeses too. Some guys use JB Weld to get an exact no stress fit of the base to the action.

That makes sense (differential expansion) so another good bit of info.....and another good reason to just remove the Weaver bases and start over.....I'll do some checlking of other threads and bookmark them........thanks very much and Merry Christmas to you and other members.........karl
