I mounted a Kahles on my Tikka using Talley rings.  These are not the quick release type, but rather, light weight rings. 
 
I messed up one the installation and tried running the ring screws into the base screw holes on the receiver.  I stripped a couple before I figured out what I'd done.  So I contacted Talley to get some replacements (fully prepared to pay - after all it was my own fault).  Gary Turner sent me another set of screws at no charge. 
 
The rings are rock solid.  I shoot a Tikka T3 Lite in 270 WSM which has a little bit of recoil and the mounts have performed perfectly.

I have both on several different rifles.
The Warnes are well made and you can adjust the lever position easily. Some of them also use an insert for the recoil shoulder to engage the base.
The Talley's are machined from tool steel, last checked 4150. They also have the recoil lug machined into the base of the ring. This is also full width to engage the shoulder on the bases. You have an extra step to adjust lever position once you have them clamped down, but it is no big deal.
Both are more than adequate for any rifle that shoots and are a touch above most systems. I think the Talley's are a step up from the Warne's, though. This is reflected in the cost, too.

Unless you are shooting some really heavy caliber, you will never see a difference. Talley may hold up better under repeated HEAVY recoil, but I have never seen the Warne fail. Of course, I have not been shooting .50BMG+ regularly either. Talley does have the "superior" rep.

 Don't know about Talley but Warne quick detach have never failed me.......but whatever you do don't even consider the Burris Quick Detachable Zee rings for weaver mounts.  They are a very poor design.........Doug

I just returned a pair of Warne Permanent Mount Steel rings (High) for my Tikka.  They came in at over 7 oz, which were just too heavy for my .308 Tikka.  Substituted the Talley Aluminum for my Kahles scope, thanks in part to Rancid Coolaid.  Hope I don't mess up on the screws.

I have both and like both - but they are good for very different things.

I own 2 Tikka T3 lites,  and put Warne QDs on a Conquest 4.5-14, thinking I would zero it on both rifles and swap it between the 2.  In hindsight, I'm an idiot: why use one scope on 2 rifles when I can put a scope on each for only 2X the price!

The Warnes are heavy but very sturdy.  if the scope will never come off, no reason for the QD - something else to go wrong.

The Talleys are fantastic, and Gary is great to talk to about his product.

Get Warnes if you will be moving the scope from one gun to another or if you really, really like to take the scope off and rezero allot.  (and if you don't mind heavy rings.)  If you want simple, light, high-quality permanent rings, get the Talleys.

And, from experience, if you are mounting the scope on a Tikka, take the rings that came with the gun and throw them away; don't keep them around thinking you might some day need them.  They suck.  Hard.

Mojo, glad to help, they are great rungs, you done good!

I must admit, sometimes it gets a little old having to re-zero. However, I can shoot up a lot of ammo rezeroing for the price of a scope. That way I get in needed practice AND don't have to get another scope...
