    So today I was on arms list and I found my next rifle. A savage 110 with accutrigger in 7mm Remington magnum. It doesn't come with a scope and I was wondering what brand of rings would be best? I ordered some cheap utg rings because I thought I was going to get a .270. Thanks.

    Burris sells wide rings, 6 screws each. A pair of those, with 12 locktited screws, will keep the scope welded in.

    Walmart has weaver quad lock rings For a good price. It's a good chance wallyworld will have a base, they sell savage rifles. I use the site to store to get rings and mounts. it's a PITA to dig through all the weaver stuff.

    Talley rings and bases are my favorite but they are pricey. The Talley's have by far the cleanest lines, but rings and bases will set you back a hundred dollar bill. I have Leupold dovetail mounts on a couple of rifles, they will run about $40. Weaver Grand slam's are solid and should only be about $25 for rings and bases. Warne makes a quick detachable ring, $45 or so and will fit on Weaver or Picatinny bases. The Warne's are steel, though, and a bit heavy. Some light Q.D. rings are the Accuracy Solutions ones, Midway has them around $40. They look identical to the Warne Q.D.'s, but are aluminum and much lighter.

    Will the aluminum stand up to the recoil? I've heard it won't but I'm not sure if I'm mislead.

    Cabelas has red field aluminum rings for $16 or so. They hold up just fine on the recoil from a 30-06.

    Yes, it will. If the ring is cut and drilled precisely to the specs, with exactly matching hard steel screws that don't get stripped with a regular hex/star wrench, you are in business. Quality light alloy rings are often more expensive than steel. It is the super cheap ones that let you down.

    So my $10 utg weaver mounts are no good?

    Not necessarily. With cheaper rings, it is hit or miss. I would test them first. If the scope walks, then replace them, no harm to the rifle.

    95sniper,What type of base are you using? If your using a 2 pc base on a long action receiver,you can run into problems depending on the length of your scopes maintube. With some shorter scopes,you may have problems getting a good sight picture / eye relief.
    I always use a 1 pc base Weaver/Picatinney rail on long actions,then you don't have problems mounting a scope where it needs to be on a long action.

    I was looking at those earlier today, I might have to go that direction.

    Your Rifle should have Weaver style bases. This is What is on my savage 110 7mmRM....


    They are outstanding. These have been on this rifle since 1998, have never loosened. These are Weaver steel, Never use aluminum, can cause issues such as stripping threads.

    These are what are on my other rifles.

    I picked up the rifle, I'm still on the way back home. I can't unload any pictures yet. Scope hasn't arrived and I like it so far. It doesn't have a magazine which I like and its synthetic stock with accutrigger.

    Rifle is awesome. Scope is a Weaver 2-10x38mm V10. Great combo.

    I have the Accuracy solutions aluminum Q.D. rings on my 16" Ruger GSR .308, and on my Marlin lever I had re bored to .356 Winchester. No problems at all, I sold the Warne's I had on my Marlin as they were so much heavier. If someone has stripped aluminum rings or bases they were either cheap ones to begin with or the screws were torqued too much. Many excellent makers such as Talley, Redfield and Farrell use aluminum in some of their products. I just sold a long action Savage .270 and had on it a Ferrell one piece aluminum picatinny base like TXhillbilly was talking about. As he said, you can put a shorter scope on a really long action and put the rings where you want them. Or use extension bases to move the rings closer together.
