    I have a 30mm viper on a Winchester Mogel 70 300 wm and my ruger steel mounts just failed. Vortex doesn't show a Winchester long action mount. I am looking for suggestions on replacements. I do not want more dovetails that turn in.
    I have used the ruger steels for 20 years with no issues but the new set of rings doesn't seem to be as tough. came loose at the back and the dovetail in the front now has play. Didn't when mounted??

    Try a picatinny style 1-piece rail, and some heavy duty rings. That should be more than strong enough.

    I try to steer clear of Weaver products, honestly.

    Look into the EGW HD bases, and TPS TSR aluminum rings. I think they will be right up your alley. I've used that combo for a couple years now. It is a very solid and strong combo.
