I am stumped

The only requirements must be 30mm (if they have a line of 34mm that is a plus) and must fit Picatinny Rail and be matte finish
 
I am wondering which you would or do prefer and why looking for other names...
 
I have even gone with the Burris and the SWFA 3 lug style.
 
Price range $30-100...
 
Thank you in advance
 
(going on new savage 110BA for the price of 1/4 of a rifle I am going to try it...)
 
again-
 
 
 
  • Mil-STD 1913 (Picatinny)
  • 30mm
  • Matte
  •

    I love my Badger's. I had a lot of problems with Burris Xtr's. I was going to try TPS, but they were out of stock, same with Seekins. Found the Badger's off the Sample List. Great quality, great fit and finish, and strong!

    I'm currently torn between the Badger 50's and the TPS for my custom .338.  I like the way the TPS's seat the scope, I like the raw ruggedness of the Badgers.  Leaning toward TPS right now, but could easily go with Badger by the time my gun arrives.

    Gentleman built a custom rifle for 7th Cav commemorative to auction for a fallen soldier's family...proceeds being used to support the construction and dedication of a memorial garden in Plant City, Florida, his home. 
    I saw his work and liked it, was impressed by the fact he donated the rifle for the cause, so I asked him to build me one just like it.
    Rock Creek 30"barrel 1 in 9.35 (recommended), Stiller TAC338 action, Jewell trigger, McMillan A-5 adjustable stock in FALL CAMO H-236, H-235, H-212., Holland brake.  Built by Mike Cuypers of Bijou Creek. 
    Undecided on bipod, may go with a tripod, ordering a Pelican 1770 case.  I'm going to wait on the SS 5-20 scope, I think, so I will use my Leatherwood M1000 on it for a while.

    Rancid Coolaid - I am curious - did you try the GG&G?

    I've used GG&G.  Good, but my gun builder did not want to put one one... OK with me.

    Did he say why he did not want to put one on? I don't have one, but the user reviews on the GG&G have really positive.

    McMillan A-5 stock... significant added expense in adding the rail to mount the GG&G, significant added expense for the bipod itself, not significant additional advantage over a Harris.  Perhaps heavier duty, but Harris been berry, berry good to me...   The GG&G is nice, well put together, smooth,  nothing bad to say about it. Said he would do it if I wanted it, but he just didn't see the need for the extra cost.  I agree.  It's a good bipod, but it's not super compared to the cost differential...  If you are already set up for one, maybe a different opinion.  I've never had any problems with Harris, but I'm going to take a good look at the Atlas.

    Never used the GG&G.  Bought the Atlas after using a friend's and liking his.  To my good fortune, they improved it between my order and their shipping, the newest version is fantastic.

Ready with the 300GR GB528 I believe this is the first out of the BOX 1:9 twist barrel from the factory I have bought ...

    OK so I haven't gotten a chance to do the 1000 with it but the 100, 200, 500 did just fine.
     
    Shot 250gr @ 2935-50, 210gr @ 2835-50, shot some 165gr @ 3650-3725.
     
    Groups were tight and consistent patterns were perfect.  Day was windy but still did just fine(not so affected as charts say)...
     
    I do not have any pics of this outing.
     
    I am not one for taking pictures of groups.
     
    The Savage Muzzle Brake is not as effective as the Surefire .338 Muzzle Brake IMO...
     
    I have no complaints about this one just yet...

    NOT THAT EFFECTIVE OF MUZZLE BRAKE COMPARED TO COMPETITION STOCK MB'S
     
    HEAVY BY COMPARISON TO OTHERS.
     
    NOT AS REFINED OF FIT AND FINISH AND MECHANICS AS OTHERS.
     
    NOT AS SMOOTH BOLT ACTION (NOT THE BUTTER I AM USED TO)

    Here's my opinion of the three you've named:
    The Badgers are as "meaty" as you can get. You can put them on a tank, but they are over your described budget.
    The Warne tacticals are very sharp looking, but tricky to mount since they bolt together from the sides rather than top to bottom.
    As you torque them down the scope wants to pull clockwise causing the reticle to cant. Warne CS is top notch. I over spun the nuts and got a free set from them along with advice & no hassle. They're tricky, like I said but can be corrected with play.
    The TPS rings are easier because top to bottom mount.
    They are strong like the Badgers, but half the price.

    I've used all three. For the money - TPS all the way on my guns, but as I mentioned the guys @ Warne are cool if CS means a lot to you.

    Just my grasshopper opinion, but the Vortex rings are made by Seekins, or so I have been told. Just installed a set of their precision matched 30's and they look super, though I haven't shot with them yet. These are $130 a pair but the standard tacticals are about $40 a pair and look to be just as good. SWFA has their own line which I am considering as well.
