Re: Which Burris Mounts Low or Medium Vortex 6-24x50 PST
Most companies will give you the dimension from the base to the bottom of the ring (lowermost point in the half circle). What I do is set the firearm in a gun mount (I use a Tipton) at eye level and hold the scope at the approximate installed height and then use a scale to measure the approximate distance from the base/rail/receiver top, to the bottom of the tube. Then you know what will work and what don't.
I quit guesssing a long time ago. No reason to have rings in the drawer that I don't use. Warne and Talley list theirs on their websites. Not sure about Burris as I don't care for the insert rings.
