    Highish rings for 1inch tube

    Just got a new scope for the .308 and shes a bit big for my old rings, not fussed on brand just good quality 2nd hand. I measured my current ones and they are 6mm from top of base to bottom of tube so anything around 10-11mm would be mint.
    Cheers

    You might want to remeasure - from the corner of where it fits the dovetail to the bottom of the ring might be more useful - sometimes the gap from the dovetail to the bottom of the ring as you've measured varies quite a lot...

    Even base heights vary a lot, some like Warne are a lot lower profile than say weaver.

    Cheers mate, first time Ive had to buy specific rings. So from corner of dovetail edge to bottom of tube needs to be 13-14mm
