Re: where to get scope rings
I did not mean to imply that there was anything wrong with your choice. I merely pointed out a small discrepancy between your two posts that would cause a difference in ring height needed.
As far as scope selection, it all goes back to one issue and one issue only- the purpose of the rifle. For a competition rifle you are always shooting in excess light situations so objective size is not a critical parameter. For a hunting rifle, it gets more complicated and depends upon a lot of things such as distances to be shot, size of target, time of day hunted, and mostly your own vision. When I was young I could shoot all day and most of the night with a 40mm objective but nowadays I can just barely make it to sundown with a 40mm objective unless the range is very close.
The same issue applies to rings and bases to an extent- the purpose of the rifle determines exactly what is needed.
