hey guys new to the forum, i just purchased a SS 5-20x50.  I have a Savage 10 FP.  If some one knows or has one mounted on same rifle what rings should i use and what height.  Thinking Aadland, Seekins, TPS.  Intended use is FTR.  Thanks

I have a Savage 10PC .308.  From the research that I did, using a Seekins 20 MOA base, the low .83" Aadlands work, as well as the Seekins .82" Lows.  I don't know if you will have enough clearance to run butler creek caps.
 
Go down to the 6th post on this page.  It shows a 10 PC with Seekins lows and a 20 MOA base.
 
I'm running the Aadland Lows myself, but right now all I have in them is a SS 3-9.
 
Hope this is a little help?  Good luck.

I have a SS 5-20 mounted in Badger standard steel rings on an IOR 20 MOA base. I have room for Butler creeks and then some.

If it is tourist season, why can't we shoot them?

Thanks Mark. I have since added a Badger Thruster  muzzle brake. It really takes away from recoil, and allows me to stay on target for follow ups/corrections easier.

Thanks for the help guys.  When i bought the scope they told me that i did not need a 20mm base and could use one with 0, as the scope has more than enough adjustment, hope they are right.  And that is a nice rig.  I almost bought one of those stocks but Fred at Sharp Shooter Supply got me a great deal on a Manner, which he installed while doing all my work.

My first choice would probably be Aadland rings, with Seekins being up there as well.   I have some of both and I have exactly zero complaints with them.
