savage ring height 56mm??

Hey guys i finally got my savage 110 BA 338 lapua! Now i need to find out what i need for a ring height for a 56mm scope. I have replaced the big rail system with a 20 MOA base.

Thanks for any information, Eric

Re: savage ring height 56mm??

You should be able to get by with Medium rings and still have plenty of clearance. You might even get by with Lows. It all depends on how high your rail is relative to the reciever.

Take a ruler, lay it lengthwise down the rail and see how much clearance you need above the barrel and go from there.

I've got 50mm obj's on mine and with med rings I have over an inch of clearance. Way, way more than necessary and to be honest less than comfortable to shoot which is why I went down to lows.

There is no standard for base/ring measurements so it will depend on what brand/style you choose.

Re: savage ring height 56mm??

Does anyone have a savage 338 lapua?

I just dont want the scope a mile off the barrel.

But 1/8 inch with egw 20 MOA base and medium rings sound awesome!
Is that for sure?

Thanks, Eric
