Default Rings/ Bases Scope mount

Just seeing what setup most of you use to mount your scopes on. I have been using DNZ 1 piece scope mounts. I recently purchased a new Tikka T3x and wanted to see if anyone else has better recommendations.

Thanks

I was using Talley one-piece setups, but I've switched most to one-piece DNZ's.
All the best,
Glenn

The construction of the DNZ looks awesome and sturdy. I am sure it is a good mount and money well spent.
Most of my rifles have EGW bases with Warne Optima rings. My AR's have either Burris PEPR, Nikon P series mounts or the mounts that came on the optic.

Yeah, my rifles that don't wear TPS rails have NF rails. Honestly, looking at the two, I can't tell the difference, except on the price column on the receipt. Never messed with anything from Ferrel, but iirc they are $$$$! High quality no doubt, and even have an area machined into the bottom for bedding compound, but stupid expensive. My requirements are that they fit well and have a recoil lug, that's it. I do always bed the rear, it's just so easy and gives me piece of mind.

That ain't cool, I'd of sent those dudes back. For $100 they should be dead on.
