Need help on choosing rings

Hi guys Im looking for some advice on which 30mm rings to get, I am new to long range shooting but not new to shooting. I know theres a million different choices, and the research I have done I know I wanna stay away from rings with inserts. Any advice would be a great help, thanks.

    Even though I prefer the Burris rings with inserts, there must be some reason you want to stay away from rings with inserts so I won't go there. You can use these, with or without inserts.

    I like the Leupold PRW 30mm rings. These are machined well and I not had to lap them..

    Yeah the Leupolds are on my list of potentially buying. I just wanted to get some options. I wasnt sure if some of the cheaper options will hold up as well as the more expensive ones. Or it was kind of you get what you pay for sort of thing.

    I personally think rings are a "get what you pay for" subject. Now, having said that, I've ran several sets of the Burris XTR's with zero issues.... Keep in mind that I have not bought any in several years.

    In my humblest opinion, the best rings money can buy are found here:

    M10 Scope Rings and Mounts

    My next option would be here, in titanium if you so desire: (they also offer bases for your Browning & will custom make any MOA cant you ask for).

    MurphyPrecision.com - Scope Bases, Rings, and Assorted Shooting Accessories.


    Next it would be a fairly level playing field with:

    NightForce
    Badger
    Leupold MK4
    Seekins
    Vortex (Made by Seekins)

    Lastly, I would look here:

    Burris XTR
    Burris Zee
    etc
