I just got my new Remington SPS Tactical with 20" threaded barrel today.  So I ordered two sets of bases, the standard two piece weaver and also a set of the burris signature two piece with the adjustable rear windage.  So my question is with a scope the has a 50mm objective which rings will give me the tightest tolerance between the bell and the barrel? The Burris signature rings only come in "medium" and "high"

I have a 700 with sporter barrel and medium Burris Signature  rings on Burris Tactical bases mounting a 44mm scope... not quite the same setup, but I think you are going to need the "high" rings because of your heavy barrel. I think I'd have barrel contact with a 50mm, or ever so close.
Your bases are different and might have more clearance.
Barrel/objective bell contact is not at the front of the objective, but at the rear of the objective bell where it would contact the barrel taper.

Here is Burris size chart, but note: they give examples of Burris objectives, for which you'll have to cross- reference diameters/ length of obj. bell, eye relief of your Premier, etc.
