I am thrilled that one of these fine Rigby HS rifles is on its way to my FFL. As I prepare for its arrival, I am trying to get other parts ready such as scope rings, reloading components (which most of them seem to be on back order), etc.

As for scope mount options, I see there are Mauser Hexalock scope rings and Talley rings. My questions are:
1. are there any particular advantage of one over the other?
2. are there other brands that I should consider for scope rings?

Regards,

I absolutely love Talley rings and have them on all my rifles. Takes extreme recoil and abuse in the field and will not move your scope. Go with Talley.

@yhc Congratulations on the new rifle!

Not much help on the rings, I'm not allowed to own anything that nice!

I have used Talley’s and EAW on mine. Both are great. The Talley’s allow a slightly lower scope position. Too low for Swarovski eyepieces but perfect for a VX6 eyepiece.

I just recently picked up a HS also and have been looking into this. Apparently Ziegler has very good mounts they claim have 100% return to zero when installed properly and the other brand I heard about was Recknagel. Although I don’t know too much about the latter.

Thank you all for your replies.

I have Talley rings on most of my rifles, except on Blaser R8s and double rifles, and like them a lot.

I will have to look into EAW rings as well as Ziegler and Recknagel as I am not familiar with them. Thank you for the recommendations.

@Hermes, I am partial to Swarovski optics so I will most likely go with a Z6i 1.7-10x42 mm.

That is a great scope.

You might want to contact Rigby for their recommendation. I got the scope rings for my Big Game fromo Gary Duffy--the Rigby rep in the U.S. They work great with my Leupold scope.

Pheroze: I was intrigued by the blog on 400, 465 H&H in which you stated you were having a rifle reamed out to accomodate the larger bore. Who is doing the work for you, do they then provide cut rifling or buttoned. Will a 375 H&H rechamber to the 400 H&H. Is there much ballistic difference between it and the 404/375
