    There's lots of good rings out there. Badger ordinance, warner,etc. I think the weak link with std leupold mounts is the windage screw mount on the rear ring and prefer a picatinny style mount. For your money its hard to beat an EGW rail and a set of warne permanent rings, you can use em as a carry handle and they just don't move

    What about Leupolds' dual dovetail rings/mounts?

    I have never changed, I stayed with Leupold after I tried Weaver aluminum rings with two screws that always got crossed. Tou can spend a $hit pile of dollars if you want but
    Dollar for Dollar, I have been just fine with Leupold.

    I have a set of dual dovetail rings on one of my encores and they have been alright but I did get ring marks on a scope out of them before I lapped them. I just prefer a sturdy mount and I think you get better recoil resistance with a pic. rail.

    It is not about how good the rings are it is about ALIGNMENT of the rings.
    Scopes with dents have a much lower value than those without. Misaligned rings can cause improper tracking and poor scope preformance also
