I'm getting a Savage 11F (fixed sights) and probably a team primos scope. I want irons in case the scope goes tango uniform. I know almost nothing about mounting scopes, but would quick release or see through rings be a good idea? Ruggedness is important too.

I'd go with quick release rings, most of the see through rings are going to be nothing but problems.

QRW or PRW or post Leos work well, forget the see thrus. your cheek weld will be too high, for good shooting.

Wow, I'm glad I asked. I thought I had read that somewhere...... I don't like the "look" of see thrus, so no problem : )    I've been told that removing and re-installing quick release mounts will require re-zeroing, but the Leupolds claim you will be "close to dead on", true? Should I bring gun and scope to gunsmith to determine height of the rings? This stuff gets pretty complicated!

in most cases the leo are very close, the biggest benefit is in using between guns that have the same distance spacing in the bases, then the rings do not have to be slid forward or back for fit, this alone helps alot in getting back to zero.

Forget see thrus.  Use the scope, or take it off.

Ok, I'm convinced, plus I can remove the scope for cleaning too, right?

Heh heh, ok  : )    So now, I'm trying to figure what height rings to get.
Savage 11f
Team primos
Warne Maxima base:
http://www.swfa.com/pc-11270-1726-warne-maxima-2-piece-base.aspx

Warne Maxima quick release rings:
http://www.swfa.com/p-11385-warne-maxima-quick-detach-1-rings.aspx

I read the post at the top of this page, but I can't find the OD of the primos.
Any suggestions? If I call to order will SWFA be able to tell me what I need?

The Talley QD's are an excellent choice, also. They cost a bit more but are worth it. The lows will work.

As far as the low size working, you know from that objective size? The rifle has irons, do they position them so they are out of the way, or is that another thing you have to just "try and see"?

I would imagine the irons on the Savage are set up similar to my Remington's. I haven't had a problem with the long actions. A short action may be different. I will get back on this one after I look at my SA M700 with irons. I had to remove them completely to fit a 3-12 Burris SS.
I also have a similar Nikon Monarch 3-9 top reference it against.

Warne bases and Leupold prw rings, if you use a torque wrench to tighten your scope you can remove and reinstall to same zero.
 
If removable is what you are after I would still use the Warne bases and use the QRW Leupold rings instead.
 
Leupole rins allow you to install the ring base completely and fit the scope where you need it and then tighten the scope down. The Warne rings are a clamshell design that requires all activity to happen at once making proper fitment of the scope a royal pain in the a$$!
