Which Scope Ring Height?

I will be mounting a scope with a 56mm objective on a Rem700 w/ Badger Ordnance 20MOA base. Just wondering what the lowest scope ring height is that I can get away with for a scope with that big bell... TIA.

    I am not familiar with that large of an objective, since I usually use 40 to 42mm on my rifles but I did a search and this is recommendations from other shooters on the forum. I hope this helps.

    Nightforce ring height for 56mm scope?

    Thank you, sir, that is helpful!

    Also a good reminder that I should engage the Search function before I "open my mouth."
