I recently purchased a Rem 700 LS 300 Ultra mag to be used for deer and elk hunting.  I was considering putting a Burris Signature 3X12-44mm scope on it.  Which mounts would be the best.  I have used standard turn in and dual dovetail rings before. 
Are these good enough and which one is stronger.  Also for this scope would I need Med or high rings.  Any input would be appreciated.

Welcome to the OT!

 

I had a Nikon Buckmaster with standard Leupold turn-in rings and that combo worked very well on a .300 RUM.

I would go with medium rings.

 

This setup may NOT the best, but it will work.

Take a look at these too.

The QD Talley's I had on a .300 Win mag worked VERY well.

Doug Talleys stuff is good to go and is worthy of your consideration.

I had something similar and preferred the Burris rings with floating inner collet.  It permitted me to mount the scope without having to lap the rings.

On a thumper like that, my experience would suggest either the Burris double dovetail bases with the signature (plastic insert) rings. I have these on my 400 H&H and they have been rock solid OR for better looks, great strength and some windage adjustment built in, The S&K wrap around rings are the most handsome mount there is and I have them on 2 300 H&Hs and a 375 H&H ( and many lesser thumpers) with zero problems after many many rounds, saddle scabbard rides and real world hunting abuse. Brownells carries both at the best prices.
