Hey fellas I am hoping sombody can steer me straight on ring height so that I may mount my 10x ss scope on a Sav. vlp in 223 cal.,  it has a weaver bases on it now. The scope was previously on a Varmit AR and required xhigh rings for proper  eye alignment but they were sold with the rifle .
I guess what I am wanting to know is what height of 30mm weaver style ring will will hold the ss10x42 scope close to the barrel with out touching on the sav 12 vlp. A beefy tachtical like the burris is preferred .   Thanks in advance

Have you considered switching to a 1 piece picatinny rail system, or are you happy with the Weaver bases?

I have my SS 10x on my Savage with Low weaver 6 hole tactical rings.

It has the weaver tactical base which is a bit higher than the weaver 2 piece. But it will still clear.

I was told TPS super lows will clear aswell!

The weaver tactical rings seem well made to me my. 308 hasn't moved zero. Love the SS scope!

Yes a steel rail is on the list of things needed but for the time being I want to use the weaver bases.

I can not recommend Burris XTR's for anything...Except maybe mounting a flashlight on a AR. The set I had never would hold the SS 10x still. When I contacted Burris even they recommended a different set of rings... While all this happened on a 300wsm that only weighed about 7lbs at the time, it said a lot to me that Burris's answer was a different set of rings.

The lowest dollar price 30mm rings that I am willing to run on anything are WARNE.
Low Rings will be fine for a 42mm objective.  They seem a little clumsy while putting them together but once they are torqued correctly they work fine and Warne also makes a fairly inexpensive torque wrench.

$21.95

You could always just use talley 1 piece mounts, 30mm Mediums would work fine I know of and you'd probably get by with lows,  These are mediums with a 50mm obj on my savage 12

Not to argue with SVT here, but here's a 40mm objective Leo using LOW, 30mm Talley mounts. Your SS, should you opt to use them, the low's will work with a 42mm objective.

No argument there, I just couldn't say 100% lows would or wouldn't.

Good call on the Talley's, Graham. I have had many different Talley's and they all performed flawlessly. 
The LW's you recommended are outstanding!
