I am looking for some help in finding what height TPS TSR rings are required to mount my Vortex 6-20x, 30mm tube scope to a Remington 700 SPS tactical (.308) using a TPS #20100 0 moa picatinny rail base. The objective bell diameter is 52mm. Scope caps are 3mm thick. The TPS picatinny rail measures 7.6mm high.
I have tried to run the calculations but nothing seems to come out right for me. Any help would be very appreciated. I am looking for the ring height to properly mount my scope.
Equipment to be used:
TPS #20100 steel picatinny rail base
TPS TSR steel rings of unknown height at this time
 
Thanks from a newbie

Low TPS rings are what your looking for.

I "think" those low rings will typically good up to a 50mm objective. 

TPS are really nice rings. I have had 3 or so sets of those and they have been terrific. As good as Badger, but less expensive.

Thanks for the advice. The low TPS rings fit very well and I believe you are correct in that these rings would allow a 50mm bell diameter scope to be mounted as well. Sorry it took so long to respond to your helpful post.
Thanks,
Mark Henry

I had TPS super lows on my rifle with the Viper 50mm objective.

Your rifle looks really good. I guess maybe I could have used super low rings on mine but I just don't have much experience with 30mm rings. I have done many 1 inch installs but this is my first 30mm install.
 
I have a picture of my rifle.
Rifle: Remington 700 SPS Tactical (308 Win)
Scope: Vortex 6.5-20X Mil Dot Reticle
TPS 20100 0 moa Steel picitinney rail
TPS TSR Steel rings (low)
