I pick up my model 700 .308 in a week. Just ordered the Nikon Monarch 4-16x50mm and already have an EGW picatinny rail. I've been looking at rings to order and was wondering if someone would give me some advice/opinions. I don't want to spend to much on rings but want something solid and reliable. I was thinking about ordering Burris rings...was just wondering what everyone thinks and what height do I need?

Thanks in advance

Welcome to Optics Talk. 

I ran these rings with my Rem .308 and a 42mm objective Monarch. Worked terrific. 
(Lows will work on your 50mm objective.)

Rings are a very important part of the accuracy equation. I would suggest not skimping here to much. That being said I like the leupold PRW rings and they usually run about $50 or so. A gun smith buddy likes the QRW style. Same ring but a quick release version. Sorry, I can't help with the Burris question. I haven't used any of their stuff yet.

I'm going to agree with Cheaptrick here, I have the TPS lows on my 700 with a Warne base and love them.  My scope only has a 40mm bell, but it seems there would be room for a 50 mm.
