School me on picatinny mounts

My new leupold 6.5x20 LRT scope will be here monday and I need some 30mm rings. I am looking at the tactical picatinny mounts and rings and wondering if they are worth the money.

I currently have leupold dual dovetail mounts and haven't had any issues but I will be getting a new barrel soon and would like to wring all the accuracy I can from this thing.

It's a remington sendero used for hunting/target shooting 60/40.

Opinions?

It's just a one piece Weaver with more forward/rearward adjustability.

Then why are they so damned expensive?

try this one instead, much cheaper

most Weaver rails are milled flat, Picatinny rails have an angle milled into them to allow for adjustability. I saw one that could adjust 20 MOA just by moving the scope forward/backward. this one has 25 MOA

arn't the picatinny designed for quick optics changes without losing zeros(have to mark the location somehow) or that what I was told.

Yes, but the same can be done with Weaver bases. the difference is the one piece is said to be stronger. this is because 2 piece mounts can theoretically move in relation to each other, changing your poi.

not that simple, there are diffrences in the 2 as well. The slot spacing in the Weaver rail is 3.8 mm, the slot spacing on the Picatinny rail is 5 mm.
