  I've got a set of tactical rings on my Christmas list. My question is what is ya'lls feelings or opinions on alum. vs steel?

I like steel, but that's just me.

The good stuff is good stuff, you'd be happy with Badger, Seekins, TPS, and maybe a few others.

If weight isn't an issue, I'd get steel (steel-on-steel just "seems" stronger to me.)

On what will these rings be going, and what will be mounted in them?

   They'll be on a bolt action platform(700 VS). To be honest it's more of a tacticool application than a purpose build.  I just felt like trick'n out old blackie. I've already got a model A Karsten cheek riser on it which really works well, so I thought why not dress it up with some cool rings & mount.

TPS is probably the best option then, they aren't as clean looking as Seekins - but they do indeed look more "tacticool", and are good rings too.

And they are cheaper than the other options I mentioned, which is nice.
