An easy way to get a scope height is to slide the bolt open a little and measure the distance from the center of the bolt to the center of the eyepiece (ocular lens) on the scope. I use a caliper and use that height.

If your bolt wiggles when it's open, just lift it a bit to make up for the looseness.
