Hi All,

I have a Howa 1500 in .308 with a Varmint bbl (.830 OD). Can I use the TPS TSR 30mm "Super Low" steel rings (.820) mounted on a Warne 20 MOA steel base with a SWFA 3-15x 42mm scope? 

Would this setup allow clearances for: 
Butler Creek caps 
Cat tail lever on scope  
Oversized tactical bolt knob 

Thank You

John

That set up will facilitate BC caps and the cat tail, I'm pretty sure. Depends on how "over sized" the bolt knob is.

Welcome. 

I think your good to go, even with the bolt handle. 

I ran/run Seeking low rings with a 20 MOA rail with BC caps with a 42mm SS objective. The Seekins are .820, the same as the low TPS and I have room on my Rem 700, but it doesn't have a over sized bolt knob. 

Good rings, by the by. I really like TPS TSR rings.
