    I have Talleys on my Model 70. Great rings, and very light (not top priority for a varminter, I'd guess).

    On my Vanguard I have Warne QD's on Warne bases. If you don't mind that they weigh a little, I recommend them. They return to zero like clockwork, which is nice for gun maintenance. You don't have to leave a big scope on your barreled action if you're messing with the trigger, cleaning the barrel thoroughly to remove copper, etc.

    Like Armed Bear I really like QD type mounts in general. Picatinny rails offer a lot of flexibility for scope mounting. The Vanguard and Rem 700 mounts are the same on the Long Action so I assume they are on the Short Action. A 20 MOA base such as EGW is a good start. Then you can use Burris or Leupold or another Weaver / Picatinny rings. The EGW base / Burris Xtreme Tactical ring are my got to mounts. You can spend a lot more, but it is hard to spend less without stepping down in quality. Seekins make some nice bases & ring also.

    I have a friend that gets the DNZ. My brother does not like anything that hinders the port access such as 1 piece mounts.

    I really like my Warne tactical rail and Leupold PRW rings, QRW would also be very nice. I don't think you can beat a setup like that.

    You didnt mention them but I chose Leupold rings/bases. Good quality for a decent price.
