What ring height do I need for a 50mm objective on my Savage model 11? Leaning towards the Burris extreme tactical rings, but open to suggestions. Mine came with a Bushnell 3x9x40 scope and some cheap looking rings. (Hunter package) Thinking the bases are fine, but want better rings. Will be mounting a Bushnell Elite 3200 5x15x50.

If its the low savage stock base mounts you should be able to use medium rings for that scope.

I have model 12 and 10. http://www.egwguns.com/ Have great one piece mounts, don't forget to get blue locktite. I own 6 or 7 sets of Burris extreme tactical rings.

Look at how long range shoots set their rifles. They are always high. Your face has to square to the scope. You can not see your scope with your head tilted forward. I use a bubble level Brownells BBL300.So, I do not cant my rifle.

Savage 12 should be close to an 11. I needed high rings to clear the barrel. The objective bell is 57 mm. Your scope may be smaller in bell diameter, though.

Pretty sure they are low bases. Will try find link on Savage website.
The med Burris rings are 1/2" and the talls are 3/4". What are the drawbacks of just going with the talls? Do I want it as low as possible without touching the barrel?

Thanks Eclipse! Very nice rig. Any problems with having scope mounted that high? My bases are lower than yours. (they can be seen in link) With the high rings I would still be a little lower than you are but still have plenty of room for the 50mm AO.

But I can deal with it.

Put a flat object across your bases;ruler,thin flat bar,cd case,whatever.Put feeler gauges or shims under the flat bottom of turret housing until you have the scope height you want.Measure to bottom of your scope tube and thats the height you need.
I have lows on a 12vlp with a 56 mm bell,egw hd base.sits about 1/8 the off barrel.

I believe the 20 moa base is meant for very long range shooting. It's like adding more verticle adjustment in the scope.

I have a savage 10 varmint barrel, egw 0 moa base, weaver medium rings, 44mm objective. The scope sits off the barrel maybe 1/4" or so.
