As BountyHunter states, one should have an idea what's desired/needed.
Here's a picture, not too clear, of the wear on my rifle from one (1) hunt. These are Badger Ordnance rings and bases and a Nikon Tactical 2.5 x 10 scope. Notice the "shine" on the edges on the windage turret, it's similar on the elevation turret. Also the finish has been worn off a portion of the bolt handle (appears as glare but it's also lack of finish) and the rest of the rifle is in as big a mess as the portion you see here. This was caused by "normal" Dave King wear and tear during a recent bear hunt.
This "normal" wear and tear is the reason I personally use Badger Ordnance rings and bases. I had fairly poor luck keeping other types of rings in place or keeping a scope/rifle zeroed. I'm not one to baby a rifle, I have them built as a rough use and durable tool, I do not expect them to fail before I do. Since I've switched to the seemingly more durable (and expensive) tactical stuff I've yet to need to rezero a rifle after a fall, slide, spill, dunking, whacking, banging, falling, drop, or any combination thereof. (Quick note while I'm thinking of it: it's better to suck the mud out of a barrel from the muzzle end than to blow it out toward the action, lots less cleaning. P. S. Don't smile at folks for a while after this procedure, they'll think you're from West Virginia [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]).
One thing I've heard of folks doing with the dual dovetail leupold stuff is to have it brazed or silver soldered once the final position is determined, no more unexpected movement after that.
Point is, get what you need and don't skimp, overkill may be a waste. Wasting a hunt or a one time shot on less than adequate gear is not a good feeling.
