Thinking of changing my ring setup on a Winchester Extreme Weather 300WSM. Currently use Talley Lightweights but may switch to a Picattiny rail like the Warne Mountain Tech and use Burris XTR Signature Rings.

My question is- Has anyone taken these rings off the base and reinstalled without losing zero? For trips I'd like to have two scopes sighted in so in case I have an issue I can swap scopes somewhat easily. Obviously I can use quick release rings by Talley or Warne but I like the idea of the signature rings having the plastic inserts and these rings also look durable without being very heavy.

Appreciate any thoughts.

Thanks,
Mike

The elevation is usually bang on, but the windage can vary as much as 0.5 MRAD, IME.

I'd be totally content if they just offered a low option. And not made in China.

Didn’t realize they were made in China. Given that and the fact that zero will move I will look elsewhere.

I've had good success with Warne QD's.

The only negative about Warne is they are really heavy. I may look at the Vortex Pro Series.

Still Chinese, but the “free” rings that came with my Black Friday SS 10x42 are very well made and finished. Come with 1” inserts too. No qualms about using them on my CZ 457 MTR. I doubt they’ll be any better than the Burris at returning to zero though. Suspect technique is a factor no matter what rings are used, except maybe with those fancy Yurrupean mounts on Blasers and such. There’s a reason they cost and arm and a leg.


What fresh Hell is this?

Those Warnes won't be any heavier than the Burris' you were looking at.

The original "zee" signatures are still nice rings and steel if that matters to you.

Are there any setups that 100% return to zero?

Not IME. The XTR Sig are some of the very best I’ve seen.

I've not tried removing and reinstalling but APA claims theirs will. I do like the APA low rings very well, great design...but they do cost.

....Unlike most scope rings the Tru-Loc scope rings have the ability to return to zero after being removed from a rifle....

You are implying they are made in China when they are made in the U.S.

Nothing you take off and put back on will return to the exact, same zero every time, but with the XTR's I need only a shot or two to get them back dead on.

And they do offer some pretty low options, though I find very low scopes to be a PITA to shoot that offer absolutely ZERO advantage.

We went over this a few days ago. The 34mm rings are made in US, the 30mm are made in China. I assume that image you have there is showing a set of 34mm rings?

Scope height is an individual thing. Many people, myself included, would benefit from a lower (~0.850-0.900") option.

Fuuck 'em.

A guy could expect return within 1 moa with any numerous products, possibly. That's perfect for some. Sucks for others.
