Anybody have any opinion of "Warne" rings and bases? I was looking at a set the other day and they looked pretty stout to me. Something to put on a .300 Win. Mag. Just looking for opinions. Thanks!

I used Warne rings on several heavy calibre hunting rifles and had no problems whatsoever. Have not used them on a LR rifle but I believe Chris J. has.

I've since switched to Talley as they are made in Wyoming. No flies on the Warne rings though as far as I'm concerned.

I have several sets of the Warne rings and 1 set of bases and they are hell for stout...I used the bases on a M7 I had. The rings adorn several of my LR/Varmint rifles and I also have a set on a .308 PSS and a set on my custom .338 RUM. They hold the heavy scopes well without spending a fortune. I recommend the Maxima line of rings( either the TPA or the Lever-QR style) and the Ken Farrell tapered bases. www.kenfarrell.com
For the money, this combo can't be beat for toughness....

Well I ordered a set of Warne rings and bases for my T/C Encore .300 Win. Mag. They are extremely stout and it doesn't look like I will have a problem with recoil. I really like the rings and bases. I ordered them through www.eabco.com If you shoot a T/C I would recommend these guys to you. Very nice and quick shipping. Thanks for the input from you guys!!!

On my .308 TAC I use a Farrell "G-Force" with 5 MOA slope and Warne 30mm MAXIMA Steel Thumb Knob Rings. Scope is a Burris BD 8x32 and so there's alot of weight to hold. So far it's all working great.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
