I need help. Question on Scope rings.

This is probably a dumb question but here goes.. .

I have been working on a gun build for the last 4 or so months. I am ready to purchase scope rings and am sold on the Talley Lightweight One Piece Alloy rings.

What I don't understand is why some of the rings have different heights even though they are the same size. Look at the data I pulled below off of the Talley Scope rings website. The fronts are all the same but the rears change.

730700 30MM Model 700-721-722-725-40X (Low) F .400 R .510
730709 30mm Model 798 (Low) F .400 R .560
730720 30MM Model 7 (2 Piece) (Low) F .400 R .515
738700 30MM Model 700-721-722-725-40X (Low) (8-40) F .400 R .510

Are they adding MOA like a picatinny rail? If so where do I find the data?
Am I missing something?

If it helps I am planning on putting a set of rings on a Remington 700 sendero 7mm. The scope I have chosen has a diameter of 30mm. And I am not looking at adding any MOA to the rings or using a picatinny rail.

Can anyone help me?

Its not hard to decipher... They GO ON DIFFERENT RIFLES is why. If all rifles had identical dimensions...they would have 1 set of rings..period

Thank you. It looks like the difference between the front and back ring for me is 0.10 regardless of whether it is low medium or high.

Re: I need help. Question on Scope rings.

For your rifle I would not recommend Tally rings. NOTHING wrong with Tally rings or the quality but they are suited more tword the lightweight crowd,I.E. Ultra light arms, Rem model 7 etc. I have never seen a Rolls Royce Win at the Daytona 500. Its a little mismatch. I would recommend you check out the Burris Z rings. They are about the best clamping power and the best rings for long range. Once set up right they can even add 20moa to the setup. Let me know what you think once you check them out..

I guess people aren't to picky about the bases.
