Sorry to be 'that new guy' but I can't find a spec on my base. I have a Rem AAC-SD and a nightforce base (20 moa). The scope is a vortex 4-16x50mm. Rings would be TSR (because that's all I can find in stock anywhere). The vortex diameter is 55.8mm at the objective and the low tsr rings are 23.5mm. (Med are 27.3mm)

Anyone that can help me determine base height or if I can get away with low rings here?

Thanks for any help-

Thanks for sharing your experience. I am going to give lows a try. I'll update the results later for posterity, should someone else run into this someday.

Lows should work and work well.
