Scope mount , what's best for the price ?

Looking to get a good set of 34mm rings or single piece mount . I think I have a 20 moa base on my rifle , regardless I'm going to want that cant in there somewhere either on the base or the one piece scope mount .

I'm rebarreling my Savage Model 10 with new scope and stock , likely new trigger as well . Already have the barrel on order and bought a Vortex Strike Eagle 5-25 x 56 FFP scope . Now I need to mount it , well I want the stuff I'll need to mount it when the time comes . I'd like to have everything ready to go by June when the barrel should arrive .

Budget range for the rings/mount , I'd like to keep it to $150 or less but $200 is not out of the question . Haha that's funny , the scope on the rifle now didn't cost as much as my budget is for just the rings on the new rig

Your turn what you got ?

EGW!
www.egwguns.com

I use their 20 MOA one piece rails.
Good quality! Not badly priced!

They are kinda tall. But it allows me to use low rings with up through a 50mm objective lense.

Their Keystone line of rings are seriously overbuilt!
If your not worried about keeping weight down, i highly reccomend them!

Plus, if you buy base & rings at the same time, EGW takes 10% off.

Vortex precision matched is what I would do. Talley one piece if your trying to save weight but judging by the scope your using im guessing this isnt a lightweight build.

Interesting you say that . Not even sure this is a thing but I want it as light as possible with out really considering weight haha . I went with a light varmint contour for the barrel and trying to keep the weight down on the stock but not trying to make the build light as a whole . More like trying to keep it from being very heavy .

I really like the Zeiss rings because of the level . I use some sort of anti can level on all rifles I intend to shoot more then 300yds . If the level is built into the rings then I don't need to spend the extra $50 to $75 on a separate anti cant level . When taken as a whole that mean the $200 rings are no more then the $150 rings + anti cant level and maybe even a bit less .

Talley rings are around $60. Ill admit im biased twords vortex mostly because I get a healthy discount but their stuff has never failed me. Most of their stuff is rather heavy though. The zeiss rings look really nice and like you anything i intend to shoot past 400yds has a level on it.

The best rings that I've ever used are the American Rifle Co. M10 rings. I've got 6 sets of them on all of my 34mm tube and bigger scopes.
ARC changed the design for 2022, and renamed them M-Brace rings.

I've always gravitated towards badger ordnance or Leupold Mk 4 rings.
