Re: Nightforce ring height for 56mm scope?
Possibly, apparently it really depends on the action and barrel contour.
I've got this Nesika action with very heavy straight taper barrel and .885 rings with a 50mm scope.....plenty of room for flip up caps and then some. On the other hand, the Raptor action and barrel would need the 1" high rings to put covers on the same 50mm scope, and still would be really really close IMO.
I prefer 50mm, but I was able to get a 56 without a wait, so I bought it. Doubt you'll see much difference, except maybe last couple minutes of shooting light and then, probably only when on max power.
Aim small = Miss small
