    Hi All,

    I have a Howa 1500 in .308 with the Varmint barrel (.830 OD). Can I use the TPS TSR 30mm Super Low steel rings (.820) mounted on a Warne 20 MOA steel base with a SWFA 3-15x 42mm scope?

    Would this setup allow clearances for:
    Butler Creek caps
    Cat tail lever on scope and
    Oversized tactical bolt knob

    Thanks for your thoughts!
