Hello forum. After the advise of various members and reviews, Im gonna pick up a Vortex DB 3.5-10x50. Its going on my Ruger M77 MK2 .300 mag. It has a 24" sporter barrel. The gun and scope were a special buy. I believe it has Ruger rings and bases. I kinda wanted to go with a matte finish though. Probably  Burris Signature rings. As far as the base maybe a one piece pictanny but not sure. So my questions are : 1) if it has Ruger bases, will I need to change them to get any other ring on besides a Ruger ? 2) the lupy 3-9x40 that currently sits on it dosent clear the barrel by much with a flip-up cap on it. I believe the current rings are a medium so will a high give me enough clearence with a 50mm objective ? I know zero about this stuff. Any thoughts or opinions will be helpful. Thanks.

The Ruger m77 mkii bases are actually part of the rifle ( they dont screw on ) it takes it's own rings that are different than all other rifles. a few companies do make aftermarket rings, but in my experience ( quite alot with ruger's ) and in my opinion the ruger rings are better. if it was me I would check to see if the DB fits before I done anything else. And go with Ruger high rings if it don't.

Thanks Tman. I guess that would be the wisest thing to do.

Not to be redundant but I have a Standard M77 MKII .270 and I am considering the Trijicon TR20-1. I don't recall what mounts are on it now, pretty sure they are the Ruger mounts that came with the gun.

Anyone know if I'll need any special mounts for it?
Would the TR20 be a good fit? I like what I have read about the scope and I'm ready to upgrade from my cheap Bushnell.

This will be for white tail hunting.

The TR20 is one inch tube the factory supplied rings will work with that scope.
