Hi all, I am getting my first 30mm scope and I am unsure what mounts/bases to use. I am mounting a tactical style/target scope on my Savage model 14 in .223 - the scope has a 45mm objective lens.

Previously I just used Leupold's STD mounts with 1" rings however I want something more beefy.

If you guys could recommend rings/bases that are solid and preferably steel it would be appreciated. Aluminum would work too, but I have no experience with its strength/durability.

The dealer I'm getting the scope from stocks EGW tactical aluminum rings/bases. Does this option work on a Savage model 14 in .223?

I have a Savage M40 in 22 Hornet. I wanted to try a 6X scope, specifically a steel tube Weaver, In the meantime I bought a 30MM Barska and mounted it in Barska rings on the Weaver bases that came on the rifle. I am very pleased and surprised by Barska.

These folks make excellent rings and mounts.

I've used them for years, and no problems.

Burris xtreme tactical, about as heavy duty as they come.
