I know its been talked to death, but I gotta ask cuz I'm getting frustrated. I would measure if I had the components in front of me, but I dont so please be patient with me and help me if you can. People with the same setup, pics would be awesome.

Rifle- Savage 10FCP HS Precision Stock
Base-Warne 1 Piece Tactical Base No MOA
Scope- Millett Buck Gold 4-16x56mm
Rings-I've got Leupold PRW Mediums.

Question-Will the combination of base and medium rings clear the objective of the heavy barrel?

Thanks for the help

I don't know. But it has been my experience that Leupold makes the lowest rings in the galaxy. Unless your one piece base is an inch high, I don't think ANYBODY'S Medium rings will clear a 56mm objective. And you can always add one more size if your talking Leupold rings.

Maybe someone else who knows more about Warne bases will chime in here.

56mm + heavy barrel = Highs

The scope being a 30mm tube does help, I'm afraid that without the measurements of the rings answering this question will be at best difficult. I would look at getting the highs just in case. If we were talking about a 50mm Objective that would be a different story, I know that it will work in that setup.

No, mediums will not work.  You need high rings for a 56mm objective.
