Need Help on rings

Hey guys

I just got a 6.5-20x50 leupold it the LR model and was wandering what rings I would need use? High or extra high also what brand?

I was going to buy the leupold QRW 30mm highs do you think these will work ok?

Thanks Country

I have med-high nightforce on my sendero with the 8.5-25x50 LR and they are too high. I don't have an adjustable cheek piece on it yet and can not get a good cheek weld. If you do not have a adj cheekpiece I would not put anything higher then meds.

Given the section you posted in I think you will be much better off with an SPR mount from one of these companys. Nightforce, larue, Barbro, American defence machine or leupold. The hot mount now is the barbro

I have the same scope and I used high NF ultralite rings and the objective bell clears the handguard by about 1/8".
