    So I have started a 6.5x284 LR build on another Thread, and wanting to learn Mil Dot ranging and use have ordered a SS 10x42 scope for the project. Until it is done ( a ways out) I want to mount the scope on my LR 17HMR, and practice learning the reticle and dailing in. (the hmr allows me accurate shooting to 250 yards).

    I am going to use the weaver tactical 6 hole rings on the weaver bases, but want to keep the scope as low as possible. Can I get away with low rings or do I need mediums you think? In the picture the sightron in mediums and they are a touch too high for my liking.

    kind of overkill on such a pop gun but they should work.

    As for the necessary height it'll depend on the scope and how the rifle/scope combo fits you. With that small objective it SHOULD work but it depends on you.
