It will give you an increased range of mounting positions, and you won't have to mess around with dovetail mounts and all their issues.
Notice that my scope is mounted a full inch further forward than any dovetail mount could achieve.
How does adding the DIP rail figure into the "what height scope rings do I get" question? Have you found a formula for determining ring height required using that DIP rail and an XX objective 'scope?

I plan to get a 455 and use either a fixed power Sightron 36x or Weaver 36x on it. My rifle will be used 99% off a bench at 50 yards. I am hoping those two will work okay at 50 yards...I've been using those successfully on my 100 yf CF benchrest rifles so I am "used" to them.
