    Hey guys, I have a Rem 700 LA and would like to run a NightForce ATACR. My question is if I use the NF one piece 20moa bases what height of rings would provide the least amount of clearance from action/throat? I have a Lemas .300 wby barrel with a short throat. Any advice is greatly appreciated. 2013-04-14_21-22-47_640(1).jpg

    This one is with the 1.125's on a Near 40 Moa rail which is close to the same as a NF rail. You might get by with 1.00's but it would be close. If you want to use scope covers of any sort I would suggest the 1.125's

    Looks like Broz has the information you needed, but here is a link that discusses how to measure for appropriate ring height. In post #4, Glen Seekins posted some helpful information that I have used in the past.

    The 1.00 height will work with a Nightforce 20 degree rail. If you remove the sunshade the bikini cover will be a little tight . Gary
