I recently purchased a Remington 700 w/5r barrel, guessing probably has the same contour as a varmit barrel. Anyway I have a 2 piece standard leupold base for this rifle and was wondering which rings with the SS scope. I'm assuming the med height would be fine but am unsure. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Also what are your thoughts on standard rings and bases? Are they good? no good? please help, since I really only have experience with weaver style rings and bases. Thanks!

i think mediums would work, but to be on the safe side, i think i would use highs.

Medium will work fine.  Standard rings and bases will also work fine, they are the most widely used mount system in the world for a reason.  Weaver is ok but not adjustable for windage like the std are.  If you want Weaver style go with Badger Ordnance or Leupold Mark 4.
