    Is your question how to get the hight for your rings or how to get the hight for your ballistics program.

    Size of barrel + size of scope obj. divided by 2 + distance from top of barrel to bottom of objective gives you your scope high.

    It isn't all that critical. Measure from about the center line of the barrel to the split in the rings.

    Or you can measure from about the center of the raceway to the center of the scope barrel.
