    Scope Ring Height

    Hey all!

    I've done some searching around on the site, but haven't really come across the info I'm looking for. I am putting a scope on a Remington 700 SPS. The scope has a 50mm objective lens, so the overall diameter of the front end of the scope is probably in the neighborhood of 60 to 65mm with the cap on.

    I am planning on using a Seekins 20 MOA base with Seekins rings. What I need to know is, do I need to order "high" rings, or "extra high" in order to have clearance between the objective lens and the rifle? I am trying to avoid ordering the wrong size and having to exchange/return the wrong ones.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Joe
    Cheers!
