Sight Height?

Hey guys, I am trying to figure out a drop chart for my 7mm Ultra Mag with handloads and was wondering what value I should put for sight height? I have a Remington LSS with a 3x9x50mm Burris Fullfield II using Leupold bases and Leupold high rings. Is there a general value for 50mm scopes? If not, what is the best way to measure for sight height?

Re: Sight Height?

Use a set of calipers and measure from center of bore to center of scope. This measurement will give you your sight height.

Even a ruler will work if you don't have a caliper. Just convert to decimal.
