Mixing rings and bases??

How many of you mix and match rings and bases? I have a tps base and I'm looking at badger rings.

When I'm not using a rail or Talley lightweight's, I only use Leupold bases with Burris Signature rings.

I wouldn't worry about mixing brands of bases vs brands of rings. As long as the quality is similar and the style is the same you should be fine.

Having said that I try to avoid using Leupold bases any more based on poor QC. The holes in the bases can be off by a significant amount and it can really screw up your scope mounting. I wish Burris made a larger selection but they've pared their offerings WAY down over the last few years.
