I have a terminus Zeus that’s getting a proof Sendero barrel, and likely a Vortex PST Gen 2 5-25x50 scope ... I’m looking at the seekins rings but not sure which height I need, any suggestions on the right fit?

Medium seekins on my hmr with a 56mm objective leaves plenty of room. 4C441D22-E0BB-47AC-BE40-27B9C35E9343.jpeg

Thanks guys, it looks like it could possibly go either way. I may just call seekins and see what they recommend.

You should be fine with .85-.90" height rings with a Proof Sendero and a 50mm objective. Have an old trusty Gen 1 PST in our Lows (.885" high) on a heavy barrel 223 with plenty of room.

We have a handy guide on our site. https://hawkinsprecision.com/our-products/scope-rings/
Thank you for the response, so just to be sure I understand it right, I should be good to go with these .87 mediums with 50mm objective and Sendero? I think for now I’m going to swap a gen 1 Viper PST 6-24x50 on it from another rifle until I can decide what scope I want on this build.

When in doubt call the source directly? Let them know if you're going to use a rail (0 cant vs canted) and other pertinent information.

I can tell you Hawkins lows will work. :)

If you haven't called Seekins yet they have great customer service too and help you out if you go with ring height for their range. Good luck on the build.

Generally with anything 50mm and under we recommend our lows in both the Long Range Hybrids and the Ultra Light Tactical Lines. Image is the 3.6-18x44 MK5HD in low 35mm Ultra Light Tactical rings.
have you ever ran into problems with the bolt throw on rifles with 90* throw? Also just to be clear are we talking 50mm objective lenses or actual OD. I think most 50mm scopes actually have a OD closer to 56mm
