I've been reading your posts since ordering my AR's (20+ weeks ago) and I appreciate all of the knowledge and personal opinions.  So, this is what I am thinking for my AR's.  The scope/rings decision has been much harder than the rifle decision.

1) Nikon Primos with Warne AR15 Ultra High Aluminum Rings (Quick Detach A204LM) on RRA Coyote or Predator Pursuit.  Lot's of good comments and the Primos is in my price range, so I think I will give it a try.

2) Vortex StrikeFire Red Dot with the included mount on the other AR15.  I think I would prefer an Aimpoint CompM2,3 or 4, but out of my price range right now, but it sounds like this sight has potential.  I also want to make sure I like the red dot before spending that much cash on an Aimpoint.

Question is, if I was to switch the Primos w/Warne QD rings between the AR15 and my Rem 700 .270, what bases would I want to have on the .270?

It will not matter much. You will need another set of rings because the Ultra high rings on your RR will be to high for good cheek weld on the 700. You would have been better off if your RR had the EOP upper. Then regular rings would have worked.

I would stay with the WARNE bases  or if you are on a budget I believe any weaver style bases will work I just put some on regular Weaver bases and they fit fine. I like these rings  a lot.

You could put a riser like an ARMS #5 on the AR then use medium quick release rings to swtich between guns. Personally I think you are making a huge mistake going with the vortex strikefire and the Nikon Primos combo not that the Primos is bad but I'd rather see you go to a 2moa aimpoint  and a Sightron S1 to come out about the same cost.
