I have a Remington 700 SPS Varmint and a Zeiss 6.5-20x55 scope I currently am using a Leopold one piece base and some Burris Signature High Rings and I am saving up for the AICS 1.5 and when I switch to that I want to switch to the Picatinny Rail system and would like ring advice as well. this is a bench Gun Only. The current rings are to High for me with out a make shift cheek well/rest


Few notes about the pic just got the scope mounted and dad was sighting it in that is a p!$$ poor excuse for a shooter bench.

I believe you will need higher rings than low, to accommodate for the cheek piece on the AI chassis.    

EDIT TO ADD:
It goes without saying that alcohol and beer DON'T mix. 
Assuming that is a beer and not a soft drink.

...and in addition, drinking alcohol and shooting firearms don't mix either.

Though I'm kind of the opinion that a modest % of alcohol mixes quite nicely with a beer.Wink

Well, there are several out there. 

You could go Badger rings and rail. Seekins? I've used and liked both. Do you plan on getting a canted rail?
