I reckon that's all relative. I just got too dang tired of the Butler Creek ones breaking or popping open too easily. Also, they always seem to need readjusting. I've never owned the Aadmounts, but I remember guys on the SO teams in the CIF were running them, and also we had them on a few of our optics in another SOF unit I was in. I ended up getting the Leupold Alumina ones....and those are about the same price as the Aadmounts when all is said and done. You know the deal...with many things like this, you get what you pay for.
