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

Thank you for the info. Im gonna take a look into both of those!

Re: Need help on choosing rings

I've got a drawer full of bases and rings that I no longer use. There's every make and model in there. I finally bit the bullet and changed all my rifles to the same mounting systems. Every rifle has a steel picatinny one-piece base in either 10, 20 or 40 MOA, along with a set of steel picatinny rings. My favorite brand is Nightforce, but I'll also buy Badger or Leupold Mk 4. These brands are fairly expensive but you do get what you pay for. You can also find the on eBay if you keep an eye out.
Buy once, cry once. I've got enough old removed rings in that drawer to have paid for the good stuff. Do it right the first time.

It sounds like you & I have a lot in common. They are expensive, but you only have to buy them once.

Haha yeah this is what Im hoping to avoid. Im glad I asked. Thank you guys for your help. Im going to spend a little more money up front and get some that will hold up versus the cheap route and having to replace them. Thanks again for all the help.
