I finally mounted my scope on my 700 tac and have the 30mm Medium Warne rings and the EGW base and there is about 1/4" between the objective and the barrel. Question is should i go to the low rings? just looks high and sorta feels high while looking through the scope.

thanks

You absolutely need to have your scope as low as possible without touching. If you can slide a $1 bill between the scope and the barrle, its fine.

i would go with what fits you. if it does not fill natural to you, it might be to high.you could put a cheek pad on to make it fell better.

Ever watch super slow motion videos of a scope and barrel flex when fired? It shocked me how much they flex. I wouldn't get crazy close.

I have always run my scopes as close to the barrel as I can get without touching and to date haven't had a problem. It has got to feel right to you though.

Having taller rings comes in handy for me when I swap scopes from one of my rifles to another. I cant decide which diameter objective I like the best at times. Of course that could be solved by buying a good scope the first time, and quit being so cheap.

I prefer to be able to slide a credit card between my barrel and objective. No more no less. I'm no expert but all the experts who have given me advice on it have told me this as a guideline.
