Scope ring height

Postby Savage Shooter on Sat Jul 24, 2010 2:48 am

i have just recently purchased a Savage 110 BA and a Bushnell Elite 6500 scope that has a 50mm objective, and i would like to get some flip covers for my scope. will high rings be high enough to clear both the scope and cover or would i have to go for extra high? thanks very much in advance

With that scope and rifle combination you should be fine with high rings. The only other variable would be if you have a bull barrel. If so, I would go with the extra high rings. If not, stick with the high. That should give you adequate clearance for the objective and the flip cover.
