    .885 will work depending on your barrel contour

    I would also reccomend the .885 height. With a Sendaro contour barrell, you can even fit a 56mm with our one-piece base.

    Hope this helps,
    Ken

    I also recommend the 0885” rings. You will have a lot of room. I do recommend the Aluminum / titanium rings they are the way to go. The scope tube is aluminum so the materials will grow and constrict at the same rate. Also they weight is . I myself mainly use aluminum.

    Also we have steel in aluminum in stock.
