    Talley rings - what size?

    Hey guys,

    I've just bought a new scope (Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5-16x42) and am going to mount it on my T3 in a pair of those talley one piece rings.

    I'm not in the country at the moment and can not measure distances to determine what size I would require. In the past I have mounted scopes with a 42mm objective lens using optilocks in low. I am thinking the talley rings in low would be fine also.

    Has anyone used these rings with this scope or offer advice at to what size to go for?

    Cheers,
    Pop Shot

    Try the main talleys website they have a easy select system

    Talley Lightweight One-Piece Alloy Scope Mounts

    I got 2 sets for my marlin they seem good and easy to install

    I had to go through this guy as others didn't ship international He sends the orders to Talleys who drop ship worked out cheaper than what I seen around in NZ

    I think lows will be spot on.I have used super lows with a 40mm vx3 in the past and that was spot on although it was a 1" tube.

    All sizes... you change your mind so much you might as well cover all bases.
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded

    Ive got extra low on a t3 with 40mm objective and still 2mm clearance so should be fine with low.
