    You could go with the NF low 0.885" or you can even go lower with the Badger Standard 0.823". I use the 0.823" MAX50 from Badger for my Leupold 40mm and it is on a 20moa base also.

    Seekins also make excellent rings and bases


    Ring height is measured from the top of the rail to centerline of scope tube




    Tube Diameter Low Medium Med high High
    *1 inch 0.75" n/a n/a n/a
    30mm 0.82" 0.87" 0.92" 0.97"
    34mm 0.92" n/a n/a 0.97"
    35mm 0.95" n/a n/a 1.00"

    Dont know why you would want to use Badger base and NF rings ???? get a matched set 20 MOA base and rings from Ken Farrell. you did not mention action MFG or barrel diameter but if you call Ken or Dixie at 660-438-9456 they can help you out.
