OK after breaking a few scopes on my 378 Bee I broke down a bought this little beast!

I mounted warne Weatherby steel magnum bases (weaver type) and tried to use the Leupold steel QR rings.  As you can see the scope is a bit too short for "my" comfort to fit.

I am open to suggestions but it needs to be strong and the rings not as wide I guess.

Also I can go back to the JR front dovetail  style steel Leupolds with steel 30mm rings.   So what say you please!!!!!










I measured the 
Leupold width of the rings. They are 0.595" wide.   I was always told to leave a 1/8" of "relief" space fore and aft just to be safe....per se. This BARELY fits no sliding at all. I do not want to damage the scope.

I'm not very knowledgeable about Weatherby rifles, but why not use a one piece scope base?  You could move the rings closer to the turrets with a one piece base.

Maybe some Talley ring mounts?

First and foremost, awesome scope, great choice.  I have the same on a 308 AR and love it.

Next, Talley's would also be my choice for a 2-piece.  I favor 1-piece bases for several reasons, but understand that they look a little less traditional than some want.

Wow! I envy your problems.

You might want to take a look @ these, you can get rid of the weaver base, and mount a one piece directly to the rifle. http://swfa.com/30mm-C2604.aspx

If you're going with 2-pc bases, besides the Talley LW ringmounts, I would also recommend the Leupold "Dual Dovetail" bases and rings (not to be confused with the crappy system with the rear windage screws). The DD mounts are as strong as 2 pc mounts get, which is an asset on a .378 Wby.

 I see some good suggestions here and I have used the Leupold Dual Dovetails before and thought they were fine.  I have seen some comments about differences in height of the receiver mounting surfaces depending on whether the Weatherby was manufactured in Germany/Japan or the USA and wonder if anyone here has any info on this.  I recently looked at the old Redfield bases that I replaced several years ago with the Leupold DD's and saw that they are stamped 700 on them; Rem 700 bases I presume. 

Thanks
