    I have a .300 RUM that is in need of new scope mounts, shoot 30MM glass. What is the best to buy, 700 action?

    Your going to get alot of opinions here, but they are going to be just that....opinions.

    I run a Nightforce 20MOA base with Burris Xtreme Tacticle rings on a .300WSM and I really like the set up. Its rock solid.

    Alot of people like the Talley one pice base/ring combo also. Im thinking about getting one for my new .223

    Warne mounts for me.
    I destroyed two sets of Leupold rings on my 300 mag.
    Get steel base and mount. Nightforce, Talley, Warne are all really tough. 1 piece base is important in a 700 action.

    I cant comment on which is best, but the NF rail and rings are very strong and that's what I ahve on my 300 RUM. I did notice the the scope slipped forward until the rear bell was up against the rings. I need to call NF and ask how to deal with this.

    On this site I would expect to get many recommendations for "tactical" style rings & bases. I've got them too and they are very strong and work great.

    However, my favorite ring & base combo for non-tactical rifles is the Burris Signature rings w/ plastic inserts and their bases. The Signature rings can solve/prevent many problems while introducing none. I have never had a scope slip in Signature rings.

    Just my 2 cents.

    For a tactical rifle, I like the Seekins. I have a 20 MOA base and rings.....and they look great! The folks at Seekins are great to deal with, and they were very prompt to ship my last minute order so I could make it to the field in time!

    +1

    I installed them on two Weatherbys this year and love them.
    In addition, by using the offset inserts to adjust the scope's point of aim ahead of time to match my load's ballistics, I've gotten both to be within a couple inches of "right on" before I even shoot one round.
