What Height TPS Rings?

I am looking for a TPS ring height recommendation based on the below specs:

1. Remington 700 Police (Varmint Contour barrel)
2. EGW 1 piece 20 MOA mount
3. Sightron SIII 6-24X50 with Butler Creek Covers

I am thinking medium but would like your thoughts.

Re: What Height TPS Rings?

Low height should be fine. I run lows for my 52mm and I still have a generous clearance with an M24 & Sendero contour barrels with 20MOA bases.

You will love the combo. I use the EGW HD base & TPS TSR rings combo on all my rifles that have picatinny rail setups.

I just recently went through the same dilema. I have the same rifle. I am using a 15 moa leupold rail and a vortex viper 6-24x50 scope with covers. I originally bought tps 30mm low rings, but realized they were a little too high. I sent them back and got ulta lows and they fit perfect. Just my recent experience.
