Bolt handle clearance with the Buttler Creek cover is a possible issue. Medium Sig Zee rings should be sufficient. The 30 mm tube will be .205" above the rail.

I rarely need high Sig Zee rings on a rail mount. If your rail extends too far toward the objective bell, maybe the extra .125" will be necessary.

When in doubt, I use modeling clay to hold the scope in place while I check for clearance and measure the tube height.

Great thanks for the advice. These are extended bases so I may need to do your modeling clay trick.

Spend a nickel and call Burris. Give them your rifle and scope info and they'll give you what you're looking for as well as their part number and who will most likely have them in stock.

This is how I mounted my 6-24 PST FFP MOA scope with Vortex Custom Turret:
