Re: Leupold Rings

In my prepration of mounting a 8.5-25x50 Leupold VXIII I was wondering what size "leupold standard" ring to use to mount this. I am trying to clear the barrel of a Remington 700 Sendero. I was under the impression a "high" mount would work, but does anyone know for sure?

Oh.., I forgot..., Go "Dual Dovetail" rather than standard!! You'll love it!! The only down side is after doing so..., you'll want to up-grade $$ the rest of your rifles to DD!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
The farther away it is......, the more I want to see if I can hit it!!

Re: Leupold Rings

With the same scope I used the Leupold DD with the Burris High ring. On my Accumark I have right at 1/8 of clearance at the closest point. I could have slid it ahead just a bit more and gained more clearance. I'm thinking the same setup on the Sendero would put that scope as low as your going to want to get it. It will be very close.

Only accurate rifles are interesting.
