...Seekins are more than strong enough for the application..... Seems to me by the time you damaged a mount like that your scope would already have been flattened by the truck tire that just rolled over your rifle.
Not exactly. Sometimes the mounts can break and the scope is just fine.
I would love to see that. I agree with azmutha, show me a broken Seekins and I'll show you a squashed scope. The Seekins are quite a bit wider than a badger. As mentioned above, with cost in mind, Seekins wins every time IMO.
FWIW badger makes an aluminum ring. I have used them and they work great.
