As I get ready to order the last of items for my Mauser project, I need to know the proper rings to get for it.

It is a large ring 98, and will have Warne Maxima bases.  The scope I finally decided on is the Elite 3200  3-10x   40mm, and will order Butler Creek flip ups for it also.

But, do I need the medium or high Burris Zee rings? 

Any technical gurus, please advise.

Thanks, Jon

Medium Zee's should work fine with a 40mm lens.  With a lot of old Mausers the problem is with bolt clearance of the ocular end of the scope.  But that end of the 3200 is not oversized like some others so you should be good to go.   One issue you may have is that the 3200 3x10x40 is designed for short action guns and the Model 98 is a long action.  Ring spacing may be tight.  My need to consider the 3200 3x9x40 instead.  Just my .02
