I am currently getting my 700P set up.  I am looking at Warne Bases with Leupold PRW Rings.  Will this combo work OK?  For that matter, are all picatinny rails and slotted rings interchangable?  (i.e. Badger bases and Warne rings, and vise versa)

Mostly yes. While a standard mount say a 1913 picatinny will mount anything, bases such as some burris z-rings and others where the bolt passes through the slot, will slop back and forth. Even though you can tighten them down, the ring will slide until it hits the edge of the slot. Heavier ring set ups such as Leo, warne and most of the ninja stuff (tactical) have a larger "ridge" that stops alot of the slop.

The Leupold PRW's & QRW's will work with the Warne bases just like they were made for each other.  As for the interchange on Picatinny and Weaver style rings, most everybody's Weaver style "rings" will fit the Picatinny slot, but not the other way around.

Just don't try and put the picatinny stuff in the ARMS slots.
