Re: WHat size rings?
I asked this exact question to an optics selling sponsor on this board, EGW base and Elite 6500 2.5-16x40. I wanted Burris Signature rings and they sold me medium height insisting that's what I needed. I would have sent them back but I had the 'smith building my rifle Duracoat them to match. The rings are WAY to high and I plan on replacing them. The barrel is a #5 contour. I believe a 56mm objective would fit. The EGW base really sits up there; at least with 20 MOA built in.
