    Hello,

    I am mounting a Nightforce 5.5-22x56 NXS scope to a Remington Sendero rifle in a Magnum length action. The Barrel is being replaced with one of similar profile, maybe a bit thicker and 30" long.

    With the one piece Nightforce mounts to suit this rifle and scope combo, what height rings should I purchase to suit the 56mm lens?

    Also can anyone recomend where I can purchase them from and have them shipped out to Australia................

    Thank you.

    If the barrel is close to a sendaro barrel, but slightly larger, I would reccomend the 1.00" height Ultra Lite rings with a 1 piece 20 MOA tapered base.

    With a Sendaro tapered barrel, you can use the low rings when using our base.

    Hope this helps,
    Ken

    Thanks Ken,

    Any thoughts on the virtues of the light rings over the Steel rings?

    Weight is no problem on my rifle as I am actually trying to get my overall rifle weight up to the 15lb mark to reduce recoil.

    Do you know anyone who could ship these items to Australia?

    Thanks.

    Topshot,

    I know Shawn sells all the gear. What your after is the same setup on my gun with the sendero taper.

    Steel rings will work just fine but I tend to recommend the UL rings myself for two reason.
    · Weight
    · Corrosion resistant

    The UL rings will with stand more abuse than the scope can handle.
