    Just got a Rem 700 5r milspec. I want to put TPS rail and TPS rings on it.
    What height rings would be best for a 50mm objective with 1" tube?
    I do have a stock pack. Thanks for everyone's help!

    Are you wanting a straight rail, or say a 20moa rail? On a straight rail the low should work, on a 20moa rail the med would be your best bet.

    I was thinking straight rail. It would be rare to shoot past 500 yards where I live. Are there any drawbacks to using a 20moa rail?

    Nope, not at all and you'll be glad you did when you do get to shoot out further.
