For a larger scope what is preferred, 1 or 2 piece scope rings? Going on an ar10.

I assume you are asking about the base. I prefer one piece when possible.

I have been using the Burris PEPR one piece mounts on my latest builds. Last one was an AR10, they hold their zero well, in my experience when removed and replaced.

I used an American Defense one-piece mount on my Colt LE901-16S. I couldn't be happier with it.

I always use a lapper when installing new rings. https://ads.midwayusa.com/product/21301 ... apping-kit

For rings, I do exactly that. None of the one-piece mounts I've used needed it. They checked perfectly true, so no lapping was needed.

NOTE: That's just been my experience, so far.
