Can anyone give me any suggestions on what height 30 mm rings will work best?
Check your bases. Both of the Leupold DD base sets I own are horribly machined off center. On both the front ring is set left and the rear ring to the right. Using a caliper I finally figured this out after pulling my hair out wondering if the barrel was crooked.
The only way to correct it was with Burris Signature rings and their offsets - and I used medium size with the same scope you're using.
