I actually bought both for my A-Bolt Ti in 308. I had to mail order them because neither was in stock locally. Anyway, after comparing both I used the Talley's because they looked a little better and are lighter. I went out of my way to save as much weight as possible on this rifle. That being said, I had to lap the crap out of the Talley's while I don't believe this would have been necessary with the Dednutz mount. Doing it all over again if I wasn't as concerned about saving every bit of weight I would go with the Dednutz mount.

I guess this is where looks is truly in the eye of the beholder. To me the DNZ mounts look like they are machined much better and make the Talley ringmounts look cheap.

I have the DNZ's on a Browning X-Bolt and a T/C Omega and have been very pleased with them.

Dead Nutz Mounts=Excellent design, and manufacture.
Aesthetics may not meet some people's approval, BUT, they are VERY well made.
I have one set now, and there will be more.

I like the modular design, but seem cheap.

Any thoughts here?

Just put DNZ on a savage 220F. Piece of cake, look and feel solid and well built. Site in was a breeze. Pricey, but imo for my situation worth it.

I wrote this up a while back about the DNZ mounts.....

I ordered the Dednutz mounts directly from the manufacturer. The woman on the phone was easy to talk to, and she knew what she was doing. I placed the order on Thursday, and they were waiting in the mailbox for me this afternoon. Three business days is pretty quick service to Alaska, by any standards. They shipped via Priority Mail, and the grand total after shipping was $62.90.

I ordered a set of Dednutz mounts for a Model 7, and since I don't have a set of Talley's for a Model 7, I used a set of LW lows for a Model 700 to get my numbers. I'm thinking they'll be close enough for a decent comparison.


The numbers:
--The Talley's 2-pc rings weigh 2.2 oz, total; the Dednutz 1-pc unit weighs 2.8 oz.
--The 'low" Talley's measure .400" high on the front mount; the Dednutz "extra low" unit is .050" shorter.

As for the rings themselves, the Tally's are .640" wide, versus the Dednutz at .625". The Tally rings are .100" thick at the thinnest portion (at the top), and the Dn's are .240" thick - they're stout!

Dan,
Do you have any idea of how the DNZ extra-lows compare to a Leupy set of low rings as far as height? I sure would like to give these a go but not sure if the extra-low would be too low to mount a variable and have room for the power-ring. I tried this with the Talley extra-lows and it didn't work but like the weight savings of the DNZ.
Thanks
