I just picked up a Burris rings/base set for my Sako, the common dovetail type with windage adjustment on the rear base.  I might want to go with a different set of rings depending on my scope clearance.
 
My question is, can I go with a different brand of rings of the same type (Leupold, Weaver, Redfield) to fit on the Burris mounts.  I don't know whether the dovetail mounting system is standard among all the brands out there.
 
Thanks,

Yes.  I use Leupold rings on a Redfield base and it works just fine.  I use Warne rings on a Weaver base and it works just fine. 

It is all about the specs/style of base and rings not necessarily the brand.

I also use Leupold rings in Redfield bases.
I like the looks of the Redfield bases over Leupold's scalop cut bases.
