I do agree that Burris makes great scopes and excellent mounting systems. I have Burris mounts on my AR's.

Either system will provide a lifetime of great shooting.

Barstock or a lapping bar will get you close.


I guarantee a scope in Leupold rings will not track as accurately as the same scope in Burris signature zee rings.

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

Next time I scope a hunting rifle I'll check out the zee rings. However, I see no need to run out and change rings if I or the OP already have Leupolds on the rifle. MOV is all I need and Leupold is that and more.


MOV = minute of venison.

My X bolt with Leupold rings hits the target where I point it and it did the job on the deer I aimed it at in 2010. I don't know what else to expect.

Iv got several sets of both types and ya they are solid pieces of equipment. I put the solid picatinny long bar rail on my warbird build. The two piece bases were to far apart to suit me so i got the one piece type.

Both sets of Leupold mounts I have utilize the opposing windage screws, aka the Leupold STD style.

They are good bases no denying that. Mainly for me it depends on the rifle as to what bases i put on it.

I run reg Zee and Signature Zee on everything I keep

On reg Zee I still knock off the points of the rings, and when mounting check everything with alignment tools.

Seen folks use crap tools, or decent tools without fully monitoring the results. A good eye and systematic brain can use a reg 1" steel rod to satisfactory result.

Have seen a bad pair of reg Zees, and some Redfield/Leupold bases and rings that were off, as well as Ruger.

NEVER assume them to be perfect, check them first, with a tool or a Tasco
