Default Which set of high quality rings would you go with... Seekins Badger ARC and more

I'm going to edit this and ask about a number of rings instead. First, I'll preface this by saying I finally found a mount, and ended up with 2 of them thanks to you guys

The basic setup is:
Remington 700 5R
Murphy Precision Stainless 10moa base/Leupold 20MOA steel base
Vortex Viper 6.5-20x44 scope
Harris 1A2 bipod non swiveling and rear bag
Rings: ??????

So that leaves me with a set of rings. I can buy pretty much any rings I would like at this point in my budget (No I'm not buying $400 Spuhr rings) and there are so many choices it makes my head spin.

For this build, until I have enough dough saved up to either get a good scope like a NF or Vortex Razor HD, Bushnell FFP, etc I would like to keep the one I have for awhile. I probably won't get past 500 yards in the next year anyway, so having super high end glass won't benefit me much yet. These have been the front runners of the ring hunt for me.

In order its

American rifle Company M10 rings
Really cool rings with a completely different design than your standard setup. Great engineering, but at $179 on sale they're a bit pricy

Seekins Precision
Great rings, nothing but the best reviews but they are out of stock everywhere. $139 or so

Aadland triple lug rings
Great rings too, just a lot less reviews out there, but they look every bit as solid as the seekins. $129

TPS
Leupold MKIV
Vortex
All three around $120 or so for a set, all great rings, nothing really sets them off one way or the other for me. Some of it comes down to aesthetics really. I could buy any one of the 3 and be completely happy. (TPS are closer to $80)

Anyway, my original question for a base was below, but that problem was solved. Thanks calguns. Help me spend my monies!!!!!

These are the M10 and what I'll likely get but wanted some other opinions or different takes on it.

Arc make good rings, but anything from a quality manufacturer will be fine.

I got badger rings, but If I had to pau full retail, I would have got Seekins.

The Seekins Weren't in stock anywhere, and the badger rings are $166 with the 03FFL discount at brkwnells.

I've always used Badger with nothing but flawless results. I attempted to give Seekins a try on my newest scope but they were out of stock everywhere and I was on a steep deadline so I paid the extra 20 or so bucks to get the Badgers.

It actually worked out for the best I think as the Badgers are .003 taller than the Seekins and even with the Badgers I had to do a little bit of file work on my Troy rear site so the scope would rub on it. Nothing major, just took a few thou off the large apature (flipped it inside the housing)

Badger, Seekins, loopy mk4, nightforce are all top rated.

Then, ken farrel, tps, warne and talley.

A rifle like that, you want beefy rings- NOT the quick detach tacticool ar stuff. Set it, and forget it. All those brands will be fine if you get the right style of rings.

So where do you rate the ARC M10 rings on that scale?

The M10 rings are pretty new, and at the higher end of the price range for rings, so they don't have too much of a market share, but I've never read anything but good things about them.

Seekins or TPS both make some nice rings.

I dont know anyone with 'arc'. Never seen them.

I just dont see why they would be worth the cost when you can get top rated rings from Marty (Badger) or Glen (Seekins) for less money.
