Roughly - Try medium rings with a 40mm and high rings with a 50mm objective lens.


Here are Leupold's ring heights.

Other makers should be very similar.


Medium rings - .77 inches

High rings - .90 inches

Super high rings - 1.00 inches


These are measured from the top of the mounting surface to the bottom of the scope tube.
