Recently picked up a 6x18x40 Shepherd scope at a gun show in VA that will be going on my Browning A-Bolt II .308 varmint rifle. I've narrowed down the ring choices to either Leupold QRW or Warne Maxima quick release rings (sitting on Weaver style two piece bases).

First off, is there any particular benefit (ie: strength, ease of setup, whatever) in going with a vertical ring split like the Warne's, or staying with the more traditional horizontal ring split like the Leupold's?

Second, what would be the best ring height for my Shepherd 40mm AO scope? The Leupold site is listing low rings for Leupold 1" 40mm scopes on a Browning A-Bolt. Is it a safe assumption that the 40mm AO diameter of my Shepherd is very close/same as a Leupold 40mm AO? Anyone know if the Warne low rings are the same height as the Leupold's?

Price-wise it's a toss-up, only @ $10 or so difference between Leupold or Warne ring/base sets.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
