What height scope rings to use?



Log in to see fewer ads
I just picked up a Simmons 8 Point 4-12 X 40 scope for my 10/22 project. I'd like to use Burris Sig. Zee rings. I'm just not sure which height rings to order.

Here's the setup:

Simmons 4-14 X 40 (outer diameter of the objective is 47mm)

PC scope base

Stock receiver with GM .920 diameter barrel

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Mediums will give you plenty of clearence. See .....



That scope has a larger objective and there is still room to go!

I have the 8 point scope on mine and I used medium Leupold rings. Plenty of room.

I used high Zee rings with my Leupold 6.5-20x40mm not because I needed extra cleance but because the comb on my Fajen stock is so high I couldn't get proper head and eye alignment with mediums...I kept getting the dreaded shadows in the edges of scope until I went to high rings.

Thanks for the responses. I'm already that much closer to finishing my project.

I also used the PC base that extends over the receiver onto the barrel so I could get proper eye relief with the VXIII Leupold. I'm able to slide the scope much further forward and still nestle the rifle snugly in my shoulder and shoot with my cheek solidly on the stock with my head upright looking straight ahead rather than through the top corner of my eye. My eyes don't even get tired with the rifle in this configuration

the stock height will help determine the height of the rings. if you have a high comb you must have higher rings

I believe the rule of thumb is to use the lowest rings that will allow the scope to clear the barrel and sights. That combination generaly produces the best cheek weld and contributes to the most shooting comfort.
