should have gone this route to begin with, but I am here now.  I want QR rings on my muzzleloader for ease of cleaning, and I would like steel for strength and piece of mind.  I am looking at the following rings/bases, any input would be appreciated.  Scope is a Burris FFII 3-9x40.
 
The only steel weaver style bases I can find for my rifle are the warne, so all cross slot style rings would have to go on those. 
 
1) Warne maxima QD rings on warne maxima bases
2) Leupold QRW rings on warne maxima bases
3) Burris QD zee rings on warne maxima bases (why doesnt burris make a QD signature zee?  Then I would just go with those)
4) Weaver grand slam lever lock on warne maxima bases
5) Leupold QR rings and bases
 
Cost is pretty similar on all of the above systems with the exception of the weaver rings, which for some reason are a lot cheaper than the others.
 
Any other options I am missing that fit the above critera?

From what you've listed One of these two would be my choice.  It really depends on which ring style you like better.  The warne rings have that hump on top.   
1) Warne maxima QD rings on Warne maxima bases
2) Leupold QRW rings on warne maxima bases

 I agree with kingston.
 It's a toss-up between those two as far as I'm concerned.

I really like the looks of the PRW rings. I believe someone posted that they were made by Warne for Leupold but I'm not 100% sure. I think either will suit you well.
