Leupold QRW vs. QD bases and rings
 
Which do y'all think are better and why?  Thinking about putting these on my Rem. 700 Classics, a  .35 Whelen and 8mm Rem. Mag. since both rifles actually have open sights.  Any issues with recoil?  Can the levers on the QRW's be indexed? 
 
Thanks in advance.
 
Chris

Yes the QRW's can indeed be indexed and recoil will not be an issue in my opinion. These things are tough.
 
 I have a set of 30mm highs and couldn't be happier. I have had them on and off five or six times and POI hasn't changed any as far as I can tell. I will be getting another set when I put glass on my Ruger T/V in the next month or so.

Leupold QDs have worked great for me.  I haven't tried the QRWs. 
 
Interesting question!  Have you checked with Leupold for their comments on this?

Didn't check with Leupold as I wanted "real world" feedback from endusers not sugar coated promises and marketing hype.  Event though I trust and use many of Leupold's products.  Working for a large corp. I know better than to believe everything marketing says.  Thanks for your input.
