Hi,

I have been lurking here for a while which has given me lots of useful info, mainly about scopes, but now it was time for a question.

I have both a couple of Weaver Tactical 6-hole rings and a pair of Burris Signature ZEE steel rings, and was wondering if anyone has experience with them both and which is the better pair of rings to use? 

My rifle is a 30-06 with a 2.5-16x50 scope.

Thanks,
/Patrik

Either should be adequate, although, I'd lean toward Burris if it were my call. BTW, welcome to the OT Forums! Excellent

I am a great fan of Burris Zee rings - they enable scopes to be zeroed with centered reticles and don't cause ring marks. Burris sells a set of 1 inch plastic inserts .05 +-, .10+-, .15+- & .20+- for Signature rings.
These rings are a good solution when receiver base screw holes don't line up or variations in receiver dimensions cause the rings to not line up - this can damage your scope. The axis of the back ring inside and axis of the front ring inside can be made to coincide as the Signature ring inserts move inside the rings until tightened.
