A few of you guys recomended talley rings for my tikka+zeiss but I got a bit overwhelmed after navigating talley's website... there are too many options for a noob like me.
 
I would think a one piece mount would be more solid than a set of rings... correct?    I don't know much about mounts but it seems that the one piece design has so much more meat that grabs onto the rail which would obviously mean its holds on better..
 
what advantages do a set of rings have over a single piece mount?

The two advantages a set of Talley detachable steel rings have over the Lightweights (which I assume is the "one-piece" you are talking about) are:
 
1) Bases for the steel rings are available for some rifles that the Lightweight mounts aren't made for.
 
2) If you buy the detachable steel rings, you can take the scope off and replace it precisely. Some people like this, either because they like the option of shooting iron sights, or because they switch scopes back and forth.
 
A few people also insist on steel rings, but the Lightweights are extremely tough.
 
If you don't need detachable mounts, and the Lightweights are available for the Tikka, then go with the Lightweights.
