I'm planning to purchase the SWFA 5-20x50 for mounting on a Remington 700 5R 24 inch in .308.  Has anyone mounted this setup before?  If so, which hardware did you use?  I'm hoping to place an order for the scope and hardware all at once.

Will the .83 low mount rings give enough clearance for the 50mm objective and bolt handle?

If your not going to be moving the scope you might also consider Talley one piece rings!

I have the set up BD mentioned on several other bolt rifles including the 5R Milspec in 308 & really like it a lot.

+1 on this setup.

The base will also raise the scope. So that is why you only need these rings.

Awesome. It looks like a great setup.  I'll likely order this soon.

I have the seekin rings and 20moa base on my 5R with the SWFA 5-20. It works awesome.
