Do talley lightweights usually require lapping?? Will be mounting it myself (usually let a gunsmith do it but he messed up last time and my scope slid in rings, so im wanting to do it myself from now on ).   Considering just going with DNZ since ive read they typically require no lapping but i prefer the style of the Talley

Lapping is usually to fix an out of square action top. Typically good quality rimgs are not the problem and lapping will just ruin them/void warranty.

If u buy a wheeler scope mounting kit it comes with alignment bars that will help u identify problems.

Right on.  It comes down to fixing the rifle manufacturer's defects, not the ring makers.  When I bought my Hill Country Rifles 7Mag they told me (at that time, 3 years ago) that they lapped 98% of the rings they install because of it.

Here is a link to the correct torque specs on the Talley's. And +1 on the above comments about lapping.

Also if you don't have access to a torque wrench in in-lbs to correctly tighten the fasteners, wheeler makes a good one.
