View Full Version : Weaver VS. Leupold rings and bases

02-01-2010, 4:08 PM
I need to outfit another hunting rifle and was looking around for scope bases and rings. I've used primarily Leupold but people have also suggested the Weaver.

So, which is better? Will both be equally effective and strong? Which design is better?

Depending on the rifle you might want to consider other choices as well. Burris Signature rings (http://www.burrisoptics.com/sigrings.html), or Talley Lightweight one-piece, or even DedNutz. It just depends on the rifle and scope.

Talley Lightweight

DedNutz - best with longer scopes.

Personally, i've never used anything except leupold rings and bases- and they've given me no reason to change...

Nice Talley's, they are one of my favorites. To the OP; nothing wrong with Leupold if that's what you've been using. Weaver bases and rings cost a lot less than big L. Sholling is right on mentioning Burris Signature rings. They use a synthetic ring insert and will mount on any Weaver type base.

Thanks guys for your help. Here's another question.

If I have a 44mm objective, what ring height do I need?
