One piece is more likely to remain in alignment, and adds some rigidity to the action when mounted properly.
Two piece mounts allow better access to the ejection port, and may accommodate scope tubes of longer/shorter length easier.
Redfield/Leupold type mounts that have the windage screw adjustments offer gross scope movement without using up your windage in the scope, but they also add lateral torque to the scope tube which is never a good idea in a precision optical instrument that needs to be straight. Better on older rifles and sporterized MilSurps. Most newer rifles don't need them. They have a clean look, but are not as robust or solid as a good Picatinny setup.
This is a very abbreviated response. However you decide to go, you will be well served to lapp your scope rings to insure they are straight and do not apply stress to the scope. Also, torque all screws correctly and evenly.
