These two most recent additions to this thread, their scopes are mounted really high. Must be tough getting a good cheek weld without an adjustable cheekpiece.

Funny you say that..I actually replaced the xtra talls with the 3/4 height tact rings today...the height was getting uncomfortable in the prone position. I wanted to see if they would be doable in both prone and bench but not with my neck it seems. They were great off the bench though.
