Okay guys,
 
Here it is....I bought a Savage 110FP in 270Win for Xmas that came with Simmons Blazer scope mounted on split weaver style base.   I knew in advance that I would upgrade the scope. 
Well I did this a little sooner than I had originally planned.  I could never get in zeroed.  even though all mounting hardware appeared tight the scope rotated in the rings about 3 degrees after 30 rounds or so. 
Later during cleaning I removed the scope and found some metal flashing on the front top ring, enough to prevent full closure and allow movement.  I removed the flashing.
 
I went ahead and ordered a Bushnell 4200 2.5X10-40mm for the rifle.  Being a long action light weight the 4200 should be more than a match for the recoil in a rest. 
 
The rings that came with the rifle appear to be B-squared ones.  I say this because the weaver style mount clamp nuts have a unique curled profile to them that matches B-square ones.
 
Are B-squared rings any good?
 
What rings would you recommend for the 4200?
 
Let me hear from you guys!!!

I'm not sure what brand rings come with that gun but I used to sell guns and I would definitely change them out. They seem really cheap to me though. I like Warren rings they will hold up Wink

Okay, I have one vote for Warren Rings.
 
I know there are more opinions out there so lets hear them!  I know nothing about rings!
 
I forgot the mention, the Rings I have are very light...probably aluminum.
the internal contact surface of the rings appear to be a painted over bead blasted finish.
 
I remember reading somewhere that this rifle came with one of three different manufacturers rings... B-Squared was the only one I recognized.  When I checked the B-SQ website the rings looked simular mostly because of unique clamping nut profile however the loose clamping bracket was stamped steel instead of extruded of cast piece the B-SQ website showed.
 
I'll try to get some pix tonight after I get home.
 
Thanks in advance!

WHOOPS!!!
I just realized that there is a separate Rings & Bases Forum.
 
Is there a way to move this string over to teh Rings & bases Forum where it belongs?
 
Or is it easier to Copy and paste everything there?

Just to be picky(and my typical charming self)... isn't there a section called something like RINGS AND BASES????
 
Just wondering, if there isn't, there should be...
 
Seems to be an awful lot of Ring/Base questions popping up under Riflescopes, lately.

If you want good cheep rings check out the Weaver Steel Grand Slam Rings.  They are like $18 dollars and because they are steel they are rock solid.  I have my 4200 mounted M1A with these rings and they are a little heavier than aluminum but I recommend them especially for the price.
