scope mount

Postby gunfriendly6 on Thu Feb 21, 2013 7:36 pm

I'm looking to put a 8-32x56 Nightforce NXS scope on my Savage 110BA. I would like to use a Nightforce Unimount, preferably ultralite. What height will I need to clear the front of the picatinny rail with a cover on the scope? There's a slight scallop at the end of the picatinny and I have an adjustable cheek pad so probably not a big comfort issue with the increased height, but I'd still like to stay as close to the bore as possible without damaging the scope on recoil.

Nightforce recommends the 1.125 height for a 56mm objective with a heavy barrel.
