Base and Ring Recommendation for Win M70

Can I get a recommendation for a set of rings and bases for a new Winchester EW model 70? I think a Leupold 3-9 VXII will be going on. I like the Leupold bases but there are so many different types. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

EGW is what I put on that same rifle. The "HD" rings and bases are great. They're a little cheaper at SWFA but you should call to see if they're in stock.

Can't go wrong with Warne, very strong if weight not a concern. If not needing cant the Talley 1 peice are hard to beat. Lots of great choices, Murphey Precission here on the site is first class as well and will build to your specs. EGW HD are great and there service is as well. Start with what you are looking for then budget.

Ditto that's the base I used on my M-70.

The TPS TSR-W wrings are the best value for the dollar as well. I've slowly moved to them for all of my rifles after having such good results with the first couple of sets I tried.

Not much really. Any of those recommended will serve the desired purpose. Some just do it for a lot less.

Nothing wrong with Leupold was going to put control mounts on Model 70 ended up putting on Leupold Dual Dovetail mounts and Rings Low with 3.5x10x40mm VX3 CDS.
I have used TPS Weaver Burris Redfield & never had any problems. Just go with what style you like. Just FYI my largest Cal. is 300 H&H Mag.
