What ring height for nightforce?

Hey guys, my dad has a Savage 110fp with Badger 20 moa scope base and Badger medium rings. He is going to get a Nightforce 3.5x15 scope but was wondering if his medium rings will work the 56mm and caps or if he should get the 50mm. Thanks guys!

Re: What ring height for nightforce?

Thanks for the info, now comes the reticle choice. My dad is thinking he wants the np-r1 reticle now. A couple questions about it:

1. If I understand the description, each little tick mark is 1 moa correct?

2. Does the magnification have to be set at a certain power in order for the tick marks to be 1 moa?

Thanks guys, I really appreciate all the help!

The NP-R1 is 1 MOA elevation and 2 MOA windage and stays that way on a First Focal Plane Scope. It has to be on max power for the MOA’s to work on a Second Focal Plane Scope.

It is a good reticle in my opinion. I have one. I still dial for elevation and windage. The reticle can be used for range estimation in the event of range finder malfunction, and they will malfunction at some time.
