I'm thinkng about changing out my Leupold rings and bases for a set of Warne permanent attatch Maxima rings and bases on my Browning A-Bolt 270 WSM. I have a Zeiss Conquest 3.5x10 44 on this rifle and the low Leuoplds work perfect. I have about 1/8-3/16 clearance between the barrel and objective. Are Warne low rings and bases higher or lower than Leupolds? I hope they are about the same and I would hate to have to go to mediums if the Warne lows are lower than Leupold. Anyone know? Thanks

I *think* the Warne low rings would be higher than your Leupolds.
 
Why are you considering changing if the Leupolds work for you?
 
I have had several sets of Leupold rings on various rifles and they worked very well for me. Had some Loopy rings on some kickers too.

The only thing I don't like about the Leupold rings and bases is that on my A-Bolt the rear base and ring extends forward over the chamber of the rifle. The Warnes would sit back flush.

Warne's "high" rings are higher than Leupold's "high" rings. Not sure about the lows, though.
