Rifle is going to be chambered in 270wsm. Which is better steel rings or aluminum. One piece ring or rings that mount on a base. Rings with one screw in the top or rings with two screws.

One piece Tally mounts or Dednutz are certainly nice and will hold up to a 270 WSM . Some folks swear by steel mounts , but they aren't really necessary for anything under a 338 win mag , but nevertheless- if you go with a Leupold dual dovetail, you will be well served. Admittedly, the one piece base/rings combos are also the easiest to install.

Unless you expect to me dropping the rifle a lot I don't think aluminum vs. steel makes a bit of difference, though some like the thin look of steel. Have you seen how heavily built DedNutz one-piece mounts/rings are? I use them on a Tikka in 300WM and Talleys on 308 and a 30-06 Howas. If you need stronger than that you're into Burris Xtreme territory. As for style I strongly dislike vertically split rings because I find them to be a pain to mount/torque properly, a pain to level properly, and a pain to lap. I'll take the cap style over vertically split every time.

Would the dednutz make it hard to load or should I just go with the Talleys.

It depends on the rifle. Generally it's not a problem but I have no idea what you're shooting.

A mighty fine rifle! If you look at the design of the DedNutz for that rifle you'll see that the bar connecting the two halves is off set to allow clearance. You'll have to decide if it's enough for you. I actually like to look of the Talley a bit better with a open topped action. It just looks a tiny bit cleaner. I have Talleys on two Howas and another set coming for my Anschutz. I have the DedNutz on a Tikka and two Ruger 22s. Either way you go you will want to lap the rings, just like you would with any other rings.

I thinking about going with the Talley light weight aluminum or would the Talley fixed scope ring that use's the base's be better. It looks like these just have one screw in the bottom and one in the top.

I have the Talley steel mounts on my M7. I like the trim looks and they are definitely strong and well made. The one piece base does not interfere with the receiver opening. That is nice for a change as I'm not a fan of one piece bases. It is hard to get around on an M7 since there is only one tapped hole at the back, though. For this application a one piece is more stable.

I have used aluminum Weaver bases on guns up to .375 H&H for years and never had a problem. I think you are good with the Talley aluminum, too.
