Should i go with Leupold dovetail or should i go with a weaver style? Dont know which one is better. I was thinking of EGW and some removable rings. Tell me what you think. Your opinion matters!

I like a leupold dual dovetail system for a light weight rigid platform. Once you get the screws tight, they cannot go anywhere. If you need a tapered base for longer shooting, I prefer a picitinny base and good rings (nightforce ultra light).

Seems like I'm always swapping scopes from one rifle to the next, so for me, the Weaver bases are preferred, with the Burris Signature Zee rings. With these set-ups I'm able to leave the rings attached to the scope(s), remove the 2 crossbolts, slide them off and later back on without any sight-in/sight adjustment required. Several dedicated bench rifles have more than one scope (24x and 36x), so they can be quickly changed depending on light/mirage conditions. Walk-around varmint rifles also have more than one scope available. Also a quick fix when/if a scope fails & a replacement is needed, right away. Yes, I also have several of the Redfield/Leupold standard base mounts & for rifles that never see a scope change, they are a good choice: really like the windage adjustable base. So, guess the answer may be linked to your type of use.

Weaver style with 20MOA is my preferred and switching to on all my guns. I'd rather the scope be mechanically centered towards 600 yards than 100.
