Re: Leupold rings and bases

I WILL NOT USE THOSE basic leo's anymore either. They've gone bad on a ton of rifles for me but I like my weatherby's and other mags. I'm now using the leupold qr mount on alot of guns. I can easily share expensive scopes from one gun to another. I got sick of seeing $175-350 glass sitting on top of ea rifle in the gun case. I like these mounts.

Re: Leupold rings and bases

Robins thats a good question. The first set of leo bases I heard of failing were holding a little bigger scope than your using but on the same cal.
They will probably due fine but once you get some extra jingle it would be a good idea to upgrade to some badgers or something stronger in case you decide you want bigger optics later on.

Just my opinion
Guns and ammo, what more do we need?

Re: Leupold rings and bases

talked with leupold early last year, was having trouble loosing zero on my 25-06, using standard rings and bases. with a 8-25-50 long range leupold. they did not advise using standard rings or bases on any magnum caliber, or any 30mm heavy long range scope. went to mark4 rings and bases no more problems. groups even improved.

Re: Leupold rings and bases

I recently posted a question here about this same issue. I have a 4.5-14x50 mounted on a lightweight 300 Weatherby. The rear ring was trashed where it was supposed to be held down by the screws. When I noticed it, I was able to unscrew them with my fingers. I was told that the Leupold dual dovetail bases would work okay but decided to do what I KNEW would work and ordered a base from Near. I paired it with a set of Leupold Mark 4 aluminum rings to help keep the weight down a bit. I haven't had it back on the bench yet, but it looks like this may be the ultimate solution. The near stuff is really top notch and Richard (the owner) is a great guy to deal with.
