Gear Lab: Scope Rings and Bases

The adage in the rifle-hunting world often goes, “Your rifle is only as good as your scope.” For the most part, that’s very true, but I will take that one step further by saying your scope is only as good as the mounting system. Rings and bases are often a secondary thought to most hunters but they shouldn’t be. Your rings and bases are one of the, if not the most critical gear choices you will make. The quality of the system you chose will directly affect the performance of your rig and determine how much effort you will have to put into lapping rings or other adjustments to get proper performance.
