I have always been a talley lightweight guy - they have been awesome for all my hunting needs. I recently bought a rifle with a 20 moa rail milled into the receiver and am buying a scope with a 34mm tube.

I have been looking at the Seekins, Leupold Mark 4 (Aluminum) and Nightforce UL rings.

I have two questions:

1. At this level is there really a difference in quality and reliability between these?

2. If you have a preference between these and others, why do you prefer one over the other?

Welcome to my world I have a brand new scope 34 MM tube and I have a set
of Barrett Zero Gap a set of Kelbys and a set of Ken Farrell Steel rings
AND I just ordered a MPA 34 MM mount? When you get it figgured out Please let me know! Right now I'm in about 650 in rings and a mount for one stupid scope
and it's still sitting here.

Other than weight or features like the bubble level, is there a quality difference in any of these?

For example, nightforce UL rings have some titanium don’t they? Does that make them tougher for some reason?

I highly recommend American Rifle Co, (ARC) rings, 0 problems & no ring Marks on your new scope!

I find that there are far too many choices these days all causing mass confusion! Stick with what you like and know...if it ain't broken...don't fix it!

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
