    Ring Height will vary with brand of rings and rails. If you go with a quality set up you will not regret it. It does make a difference!! I recommend using Nightforce rails and rings on a 700 Rem. The ring height you need for that Viper are the .885's (lows)

    I too, will recommend NightForce equipment as well as Badger Ordnance & Murphy Precision; not in any sort of order as they are all top tier manufacturers.

    I cannot stress enough, the importance of what Broz said. Buy quality components, the initial cost will be more but they will last the duration. I personally feel that in the rings & bases department, you get what you pay for.

    I think you will be very happy with Murphy. The last two Pic rails I ordered were custom made Murphy's for my Stiller Short actions (2). Cam is a great guy to deal with & his products are second to no one.
