    I have a Leupold 4.5-14x50 MK4 scope for a Remington 700 Sendero. I will put a MK4 long range (20 moa) base on it. What rings would give this setup the lowest profile? I am looking into keeping it leupold, but will consider others that would keep it low. The scope has butler Creek caps on it. Leupold suggests their high rings, but i feel from other setups, this is too high. Would mediums work? Any help would be great.

    i have the same set up that you have. it's one of the first generation Senderos with a .930 diameter barrel at the muzzle. i had a tall set of leupold Mark 4 rings but they seemed too high so i got a set of medium ones. Leupold part number 61049 and they work fine. Don't forget you need 30mm rings.
