Hi,
 
Trying to find the sturdiest most heavy duty two-piece bases for a short action (308) Remington 700.
 
Always used the one piece badger rail but sick of trying to top load under them so want to try a two piece.

Talleys are holding up fine on my hunting rigs and varmint rigs.  Should be fine for your needs.
Talley Lightweight Aluminum Scopemounts
 
and if you don't like the one piece design i'd go with thier bases and rings seperate.

You'll LOVE them, or I'll buy them from you. 

I need another set for my Rem. 700 anyway. Serious.....

I have the Light Weights and the others SVT listed and I'd take the LW's hands down. There's nothing wrong with the others, but I REALLY like the LW's.

Cool! Thanks guys!! Super
 
I was considering the (Low) Talley lightweights already.  Thing is - I was considering a 2pc base to utilize the set of Badger rings I've got on-hand to my swap scope around until I can afford another.

I feel ya, but Dude....the LW's are $40.....

I'm in the same boat. Badger rings, Badger rail...... pop $40....Talley LW's...problem solved.  
These things are the best $40 you will EVER spend. Trust me.

Thank you. 

.223 Rem with HS Stock, Leupold VX-R 3-9x, Talley LW lows, and the bottom metal is Pacific Tool and Gauge with an AI 10 round magazine. 
I put a Triad Tactical stock pack and the Leupold Alumina covers on since this picture was taken. 

Got an older Rem trigger put in it too. 

Pretty sweet shooter with hand loads.

Nice, HS stocks are underated IMO.  They got a bad rap but I can say my 5R in the HS was just as accurate as in an AICS.  Got a cheek riser for it and a stock pack to cover it.  Very comfortable now.  Filled the butt end with spray in foam so it doesn't sound so hollow.  Putting the LTR in that set up because it came in a tupperware - leaving the 5R in the ACIS.

This one is the older varmint style stock, not like the newer PSS stocks with the big palm swell. I also went ahead and bedded the recoil lug because it was slopping around in there a bit. 
All in all it's a nice light weight "truck gun" for me. 

I'm looking at getting a ACIS stock this year for my birthday, for my .308 Rem. BIG chunk of $$$$.....

You made your choice and you're happy; that's great!  I have a set of Talleys, too, and they're very good product indeed!

For others who see this thread, I also REALLY like my Conetrol rings.  They're steel, which I suppose some may dislike for the weight, but they're BEAUTIFUL, wonderfully machined and finished, and STRONG.  They're not 'tacti-kool' though; they're a 'classic' ring & base.

Just another option for folks to consider.

Conetrol rings are a great product, no doubt. I couldn't agree more.

Good choice...
also might mention that Burris makes 2- piece steel Picatinny bases which work well (for future info).
