Hello members,
I am a new member although I frequent this site on a regular bases.
 
The question(s) I have are recommendations for scope bases and rings.
I will be mounting a Kahles CL 4-12X52 on a Weatherby mark V 300 Magnum.
 
1)  I like the looks and system of the Talley lightweight one pc ring and base combo.
     Are these alum ring and base combo strong enough to handle the recoil from the 300?
     Any one have a history with these ?
     Is lapping required on these rings?
 
2) The other setup I am concidering are the Warne Maxima perm rings.
 
3) Also will be mounting a 30mm scope to a Ruger M77 7MM mag, any recommendations on the best ring mounts to use.
 
4) How acurate are the QD Warne rings as far as returning back to Zero?
 
Thanks

I have a very simular setup, 300 wby markV with Kahles 4-12x52CL.  I used Leupold bases and rings, my setup required "high" rings, medium rings were too short.

I would recommend the Warne bases and QD rings and yes they will hold zero every time as I have them on many rifles.  The nice thing about them is that the tightening levers can be adjusted to any position after tightening.  The Talley light weight one piece rings are nice and will easily hold up to the recoil of the 300 Wby. magnum and yes they will need to be lapped.  The Warne rings do not need to be lapped as they are vertically split.

What does being vertically split have to do with whether they need to be lapped or not?

I have Warne QD's on a Ruger #1 and like them a lot. They are well made and will look nice on an M77.
I prefer the Talley all steel QD's the most. I think they are a step up form the Warne, quality wise. They cost a bit more, though. Either one would be my choice.

 First off, being vertically split, especially of the Warne type makes them very difficult to lap.  Second, high quality vertically split rings like Warnes have a built, so to speak, amount of play, so to speak, alignment when tightening them down for any misalignment unlike horizontally split rings.  Third, Warne does not recommend lapping their product.

I mounted the same scope on my Tikka T3 lite using Talley light weight, medium height, rings.  I'm shooting a 270 WSM that has a quick, sharp recoil.  The mounting system holds like a rock.

I also have the the Talley setup. Although they are aluminum they are still real strong because the base and ring are one piece. I personally say Talley or Warne. I love my Talley setup on my weatherby though.
