Just purchased a Weatherby Mark V Accumark in .308 and a Swarvorski Z3 4-12x50 but need some input on the best set of rings and bases for this rig. Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated!  Smile

Bamadad these would also work real well if your not looking to save weight. I just put a set on a 7mm-08 rifle.

Both ring choices offered by these distinguished Gents are commendable, I have and love both the LW's and the fixed 2 piece units. They work perfectly.

But since you mentioned "the best", have you considered Conetrol rings?  
I'm not sure they are "better" than the aforementioned suggestions, but they too should always be considered top shelf rings.

  Thank you for your suggestions I went to my local Bass Pro and ended up with Leupold Dual Dovetails w/high rings. Installations went okay but had to lap the rings. Mounted the scope and planning on going to the range tomorrow. Hopefully I can get on paper and season my barrel all in one day. I'll be very surprised if I get out past or even to the 100yd targets but not giving up hope. I will also send some pictures.

Haste makes waste!!!!

  Spent all morning trying to get these Luepold Dual Dovetails to work right. The problem is when I look through the bore at the target set at 50 yards then try to get my scope up to the target I'm all the way up on my elevation and still 1.5 feet low. So went to Bass Pro again and got the super high DD rings and still have the same problem. Seems like Leupold front base should be about 1/8" higher. Frustrated with all this I took the Leupold Dual Dovetails off and through them in the trash and starting again from scratch. Please help with suggestions!!

Suggestions?? 
You've disregarded all the suggestions you've gotten thus far, Sir. Not only that, you then went out and cheerfully purchased an inferior product from a competitor of this forums Gracious Host and then logged on here to tell everyone about it.

I can only surmise that if you purchased the Talley Light Weights, as recommended, you wouldn't have had to lap the rings and you'd be reporting back that all is 5 by 5. 

Furthermore, start sighting in your scope closer than 50 yards. Try 25 yards, if using the Hillbilly Bore Sighting method, as I do.

Nobody around my area carries the Talley or the Conetrol. Ive used the Talley's on another rig and thought they were fantastic. Now since I have this new rifle and scope thought I would try to break her in quick. I'm not trying to disregard anyones suggestions but when you tell me Talley Lightweights help me out like a model number for my accumark in .308 with Swaro z3 4-12x50. I don't have a clue if it's a long action or short action. I'm not trying to be a pain just a little anxious.

I can't hot link. But I did show you the part number. 

Is the scope a 1"? You need mediums, probably with the 50mm objective. .308 is a short action, or non magnum.

Try that.

I like those rings and will order from SWFA however I might need the tall rings to put lens cap on. What do you think?

Mediums will allow for the lens caps, no problem.

As an aside, you may want to get your scope back close to mechanical center before trying to zero your scope, since you were having problems with the other rings. 

As I stated earlier, try looking through the barrel at 25 yards, (or closer) and adjusting your scope first, rather than at 50 yards.
