Hello:

 

I just purchased a Savage Model 11 FCNS in .223

http://www.savagearms.com/11fcns.htm

 

along with a pair of Weaver #46 scope mounts.

 

I am looking at purchasing a Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5-16 x 42mm (Model #65-2164M)

http://www.bushnell.com/general/riflescopes_elite6500_65-2164m.cfm

 

The web site mentions that this scope has a 30 mm tube.

 

I want to use Zee Burris rings as I have them on all of my other scopes and I am a little confused about what model I should get.

http://www.burrisoptics.com/sigrings.html

 

Should I be looking at the Zee Rings in weaver style because I have weaver bases or do I need to go with the 30 mm Zee rings because of the 30 mm tube on the scope.

 

Will the 30mm rings fit on the Weaver #46 bases that I ordered for my Savage?

 

I am sorry if this is a dumb question.

 

One last question, does anyone know the size of the Butler Creek pop up scope caps that I would use for the Objective and Ocular eyepieces.

 

Thank you for your time.

 

Regards,

 

Chizzy

Welcome to the OT Chizzy.

You will need the 30mm Zee Rings.  I use them for my Burris Black Diamond.  My guess is that you will need the medium rings with the 42 mm objective.  The 30mm will fit your bases.  The Zee rings whether for the 1" or 30mm will fit weaver style bases.

As for the size of the caps you want, follow this link and post the scope there, and they will check it for you and let you know.
