Re: scope clearance

If it's not touching you should be fine. Can you slide a piece of paper between them without touching?

Re: scope clearance

Are you planing on using flip up covers or anything such as that with it? If so there needs to be enough clearance for them and then some. As long as it's not touching that should be good. If it's an AO you may want to rotate it and check all around.

Re: scope clearance

Put a piece of plain paper and a piece of carbon paper in the gap. Fire the rifle. If the carbon marks the plain sheet, you're too low.
