scope ring

I have a Browning A bolt in 7mag. Planning to buy a Viper PST 4-16x50. Will be putting on a EGW rail. Wondering what size scope ring will work with minimal clearance. Was thinking low rings might clear, but not sure. If extra low clear that's even better.

Thanks,

JB

YOU SHOULD BE FINE WITH THE LOW RINGS. I HAVE A VIPER 6.5-20X50MM AND I RUN A PST LOW RING ON A 20MOA SEEKINS RAIL AND IS JUST RIGHT.

Re: scope ring

I also have a butler creek flip up cap and I would say I clear it with about 1 credit card thickness. Im not sure if extra low rings would clear. I will try and post a picture tomorrow showing it if I can remember. I am at work today and wont get home until the morning.

Re: scope ring

What's the advantage of having steel over aluminum scope rings if any?
