What rings will work on a Deviant action, Zeiss V6 6-30x50 scope. Proof light Sendero barre. Will medium Seekins work?

There's no chart out there that gives ring height for different scopes and actions. Not that I'm aware of anyway. It depends on the height of the base you use, if any, and the conture of the barrel and size of the objective lens. The only way I've ever measured for ring height is to lay the rifle and scop out on a flat surface with the objective lens 1/4" to 3/8" above the barrel (for lens cap) and measure from the center of the scope tube to the top of the picatinny rail or base with a micrometer
It's not perfect but it beats buying the wrong size, sometimes twice.
