I am mounting a Leupold Mark IV 3.5 x 10 x 40 on my Remington 700 Police.  I currently have a picatinny rail mounted on the gun.  I also have currently mounted a Super Sniper with Warne Maxima Medium Rings.....here is my question the current scope looks like there is plenty of room to go with a shorter ring-I dont like my cheek to stock weld.  When mounting this Leupold.....could I be okay with a low ring vs a medium?  Am thinking of the Burris Tactical Extreme rings. 
 
What is the height diff between med rings and low?  Is this something I could measure before I order?

The height difference between medium and low rings differs from manufacturer to manufacturer.

For Burris Tactical Extreme rings, low rings have 0.25" from the receiver to the bottom of the tube and medium rings have 0.5"

For Warne, low rings are same height as Burris - 0.25", but medium rings are lower than the equivalent Burris - 0.375"

If you currently have medium height Warne and you plan to switch to low height Burris or Warne, the scope will sit about 1/8" lower.

Personally, I like both Warne and Burris Tactical Extreme rings and have a few sets of both.  Overall, I prefer Warne rings myself, but both work.
