Ring Height ?

I am putting a Sightron S3 6-24X50mm scope on my Factory Remington sps ss LA. I orderd a EGW 1 piece base and am going to order Burris 30mm Xtreme Tactical Picatinny-Style Rings.

I am wondering what height ring to order?

I think the low rings will work, but I am not sure can some on help me?

Re: Ring Height ?

I used Med. Burris signature rings with this 40mm Monarch and it's close. because of the one piece mount. a 50mm, you might want to re-think the low rings. But my set up is not the same as yours. If I was to put a 50mm on this rifle with the same rings as I used on the 40mm, I would have to use the high ones.

Re: Ring Height ?

With that size bell I think you will have to go medium or even high depending on the height the bases give. Some of the scope web sites give height info for a particular scope on a gun model. Even if it's not a perfect match it will give you an idea. Of course each ring manufacturer can/will usually have a different height for their 'medium' etc. I have used medium Warne rings with a 44mm objective Burris scope but I had to position the scope so it would just clear the barrel.
