I've never had a problem with the durability of the aluminum Weaver bases, on my .300 and 7mm mags, or my buddies bigger stuff.
Of the dozens had, I did get one set with the holes off center.
But then I've seen some pricey rings and bases by other manufacturers a little less than they should have been too.

Aluminum- one less thing to rust.

Slight flex (if it's there) might make for more solid anchoring of the base itself.

I only run cheap guns, like lowly Remingtons, it's not like I'm putting them on a Dakota or some classic Browning Safari bolt rig

Does it matter the cost of the gun??? Whats wrong with a remmy??? I just said why not use steel bases since u are using top notch rings like burris, yes I think burris zee an leupold prw rings are top notch rings, that is outside the custom units. Never said the trusted old weave bases dont work I just think steel are better

Millit good quality stuff there, but on a 22 why not go with burris rings an bases a lil less money but same quality, that is if your .22 is drilled an tapped for bases , if not look no further than the steel,burris zee .22 rings, u need high rings on a 22 dovetail mount to clear a 40 mm scope, if u are using a 32mm or smaller obj scope the mediums are fine.

I'd personally stick to the top of the line Leupold or Nikon in medium price scopes. Leupold mounts and rings are excellent as well.

+1 Agree! Burris rings are good too.
