Looking to purchase a set, or two, of rings to hold a scope securely in a Weaver-style base. This is for an Encore 445 Super Mag. Thanks.

All of my boomers (Contender/Encore) sport the SSK TSOB base, I use 3 Warne steel 1-inch fixed Medium rings. I use the same 3 ring setup on my BFR?s with the factory supplied base.

I have switched to the 3 vertical split ring set up as well. Warne's are great and Leupold's will work too.

I SWEAR BY THE WARNE MAXIMA RINGS AND YOU USUALLY CAN GET 3 ON A SCOPE.

They are the only rings I have found (and I have tried 'em all including the ones made out of country) that have such good tolerances that they usually will not mar the scopes.

Leupold vertical split rings, as many as you can fit on it.

Thanks for all the replies, fellas. Looks like the Warren Rings are on the top thus far. I plan on putting at least three rings on the base/scope. It is a Leupold VX-3 scope on a MGM base and barrel and I believe I will have the room.

Offshore, here's a little food for thought. There is a Big difference between Warnes standard rings and their Tactical ones. I have 2 Tactical Warne Rings on my SSK Encore pistol in 500 S&W. I've put about 350 full load rounds through it. The scope ain't going anywhere
