I am trying to figure out  Loco what rings are going to be better for a Weatherby Vanguard 7mm mag.  I was considering the standard Leupold steel rings or the Burris tactical rings.  I've heard that the way that the leupolds lock down is better as opposed to the burris' that clamp.  The reason that i pick the tactical version of the burris rings is because i like the overall way that the tac. rings look (and leo. tac. are like $130 and they are hardly different from the standard)  which are better based on your guys experience?
 
I think that i will go with the two piece mounts because i have a hinged floor plate and even though that it is a 7 mag, i've heard that scopes should be able to take it and the scopes are more likely to budge before the mounts. (?)
 
thanks

like i said i have a vanguard by weatherby and noticed that it is hard to find a mount made and listed for this exact gun in magazines or on the web.  is there another popular gun that will have mounts that fit the weatherby vanguard, or do i go under the weatherby mark V mounts?

Good call on Talley. They are very well made and worth every dollar. They can be taken off and put back on and hold zero. The only difference between the fixed and the QD is a Torx screw versus a lever. I have several of both.

The Weatherby Vanguard takes the exact same bases as a Remington Model 700. So you'll have a million choices to choose from as far as bases and rings are concerned.

I have had really good luck with Warne rings.  And according to their website, they do use the same base as the Rem. 700!
