Default Leupold vs Burris rings and lapping?

I recently just picked up a leupold vx-2 scope to put on a FN built model 70 and was set on buying the dual dovetail mounts made by leupold, until the the guy at the shop said that I should use the leupold bases but use burris dovetail rings instead because they are better and require no lapping like leupold rings do. He said the leupold rings can leave marks on the scope tube where the burris rings do not. So if anybody has a idea on which is better I would be very happy to hear about it. I dont want to mess up a new scope. Thanks in advance.
