    Could someone help me with ring height info for the below rifles. I'm thinking of getting Burris Signature 30mm Zee rings.

    1. Remington 700 action
    Bartlein M24 contour barrel chambered in .308
    Weaver 20 MOA picatinny base
    Sightron Siii 6-24x50mm
    Butler Creek caps

    2. Savage Model 10 .308 win
    Factory Varmint barrel
    Weaver 20 MOA picatinny base
    Vortex PST 6-24x50
    Bulter creek caps

    Bolt handle clearance with the Buttler Creek cover is a possible issue. Medium Sig Zee rings should be sufficient. The 30 mm tube will be .205" above the rail.

    I rarely need high Sig Zee rings on a rail mount. If your rail extends too far toward the objective bell, maybe the extra .125" will be necessary.

    When in doubt, I use modeling clay to hold the scope in place while I check for clearance and measure the tube height.

    Great thanks for the advice. These are extended bases so I may need to do your modeling clay trick.
