I am awaiting delivery on a Burris black diamond scope. It's a 8-32X50 scope with 30mm tube. I am thinkng of mounting this on my savage model 10 .308. I am also thinking of using burris signature zee rings. Problem is I need help in figuring height. I have a ken ferrel 20moa base on it and its a heavy barrel. I would like to keep it as low as possible but still have room for caps. Any help????
Thanks

Thanks cheaptrick, I saw this info but was wondering if the 20MOA base would change anything. I currently have a SS10X mounted on this rifle in burris signature zee rings. There is a lot of room under the scope. Maybe .400", little closer where the adjustment ring starts. Also that scope is only about 50MM on the OD of the AO, the burris is closer to 60mm. Doing the math says it fits, trouble is I don't remember if they are high, med or low rings. I'm thinking med and would llike to get lower if possible. Make sense??

Yes Sir! That sounds like it will work.
 
Canted rails "typically" won't change your ring height. Barrel contour will though.
 
Best of luck!! Let us know how it works for you and please post pics.
