Remington 700 5R 300 Magnum

Hello everyone...
I have a remington 700 5r 300 win mag. I have yet to add a scope to the rifle but.............I would like to set it up with a badger ordnance 20 MOA base, and a nightforce NXS 5.5-22x56mm......My question. Will badger ordnance 0.885 medium height rings clear the 56mm and still leave room for butler creek flip caps? Or should I opt for the standard 50mm nightforce scope bell?

Any help and or pictures of similar setups would be appreciated

My M700 Milspec 5R .300WM has a NXS 3.5-15X50 with the NP-R1 reticle. 50mm is plenty big for my purposes since I had a 56 and found it to just be too big and cumbersome for hunting.
I used the 20MOA base and low NF rings and they're just perfect. I have put the same setup on my other 5Rs a .308 and .223 except that the .223 has the NP-2DD.
