I'm wondering what ring you used, and in what height.  I have the model 10 'Predator Hunter,' which comes from Savage with 2-piece Weaver bases.  I have no interest in buying a different base(s).  Thanks!

Since no one else has, I'll report on what I've now done. :)

Using Burris Signature Zee 'high' rings on the factory-installed Weaver 2-pc bases (std. Weaver bases, as far as I can tell) lets the Weaver scope bell clear, but that's about it. The Butlet Creek cap is going to be close as to whether it fits or not...

Okay, maybe not so close as I'd thought.  I'd have to bend something to get it to fit.  This means that the ring height is extremely good (as in, as low-profile as possible with this scope and medium-barrel-weight gun), but I'd need something like Leupold Alumina screw-in caps to have a cap that fits between the scope & bbl.
 
Which leads me to my next question:
Is there a good cross-reference somewhere that lists the myriad thread diameter + pitch specs for the various scopes out there?  It would be VERY handy to be able to know that (just a fer-instance) a Leupold Alumina cap had xx-in (or mm) by xx-pitch threads, and therefore would screw right in to a Weaver or Burris or whatever scope with a xx objective.
