Rings Height

Postby RD3006 on Tue Jun 12, 2012 4:18 pm


I need an advise about ring height.
I intend to put a Sightron 8-32X56 (bell diam. = 65.02 mm) on my new Kimber 8400 Tactical, wich already comes with a Picatinny rail.
Rings will be Burris tactical.


Thanks in advance,

The high height should give you clearance but still allow for the objective to be very close to the barrel. That should make for an ideal set up.

Burris XTR rings are tall. Seems like mediums would work.
