This is my first post on this or any other forum, so please bear with me.
 
I recently purchased a Savage model 12 bvss in .223. I am still waiting on a Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x44 AO MC silver that I ordered before Christmas. This combination will look awesome with the right mounts and bases (silver), which is my current dilema: what would be the best fit for this rig for under $50-60?
 
I have taken an interest in the Burris Signature because of the shims and synthetic coating that prevents visible "rings" on the scope's finish.
 
Other than the Burris Video posted by Chris Farris, I cannot find enough information on bases or rings to know where to begin, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can find all the information about all the mounting systems that are sold by SWFA on the home page. Just go to the left side of the screen and click on "mounts".
 
I like the Burris rings and bases. Lots of folks here spend more money on other mounts which are also very good. I've had great luck and never a problem with the old reliable Redfield-style turn-in rings. I switched to Burris years ago because of the plastic inserts inside the rings which do not mar the scope's finish...and they GRIP the scope real good and there is generally no need to LAP the rings and jump through hoops as long as you mount your rings straight. You can get a tool to tell you when your rings are perfectly aligned. Have a good gun store owner, or some gunsmith, set you up with mounting your scope up. Make sure they know what they're doing. Just because someone has a Gun Shop doesn't mean that they KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT GUNS. If you hang out like a fly on the wall and "look" at stuff in the store, you should soon learn whether or not those fellers know guns or not by the conversation and the traffic coming in or out. I have been in some gun stores where the people who owned it or worked there didn't know what day of the week it was! ( I ask the fella 'show me that Winchester Model 70' and he turns around and grabs an Ithaca shotgun and says: 'this one?'.....YIKES!) 
 
Anyway, once you have found yourself a reliable, friendly gun-person, have him mount up your base or bases, and then watch him as he puts your rings on. Burris makes the silver style in bases and rings. It MAY cost more than $60 though. EVERYTHING is going up!!   The last time I bought some Burris rings ( over the counter! BAD IDEA!) it cost me $48 plus tax just for the RINGS! I almost fell over!
 
A 44mm Conquest SHOULD mount up on a Savage with Medium rings--but Conquests have a REAL Fat Eyepiece and has been known to have bolt handles hit it. You may have to Experiment to get the right FIT.  Check out your options in the MOUNTS section.  Remember, Leupold has got about the lowest, flattest mounts known to mankind.  I would stay with Burris stuff...more height to work with....although the Burris rings will work with everybody else's turn-in bases, too. 
 
Well, enjoy yourself. Maybe you've already got a dependable gun store professional near you. Welcome to this very FUN SITE!    Big%20Smile    --Ed

Ed has given you excellent advice, as a savage shooter, signiture zee ring user, and conquest nut I can tell you for sure the medium rings will work great. Enjoy your new savage and conquest. They make a great combination, those 12bvss's are scary accurate with a good load!
