Ok, I just went to order rings for my SC3A5, and I realized I don't know what height I want. I don't think I will have a problem goin up because I have the adj. cheekpiece. But I don't want to raise my scope too high because I have heard the closer you keep the scope to the barrel, the more accurate it is. I also think I will at least need medium rings due to the 50mm bell. Anyone know about this problem? Thx in advance.

Generally... you want the center of the objective lens to be 1.5 - 2.0 inchs above the center line of the bore. Ring size depends on multiple things..

1: Barrel Contour
2: Base Hieght
3: Objective Lens Size

You do want to get the scope as close to the barrel as possible... with out it contacting the barrel.

id go with medium.. just to make sure it fits. (im not very familiar with the TPS rings) But if you can get low mounts to fit i would go with those.

I was going to buy a one piece base from TPS w/ a 20 MOA cant. And I think now I may need high rings, but I am not sure.

Thx a million!! I was just about to go order the base and rings and I realized 1 thing. Will the Remingtion 700 base fit onto my SC3??? It is a montana rifleman action, not a Remy.

ALso- the 20 MOA cant alloy base I want is out of stock. For how long? And who do I buy the stuff through, it seems like only a couple products are available online.

Right now,
The best place is to go through Brownell's or bigrivertactical.com. We fill the vendors before our stock, so I would try a vendor first.

If the Montana Action is in spec with the remington action then there shouldn't be a problem.

APK, I think I read in a post somewere here that the Winchester base fits the Montana Rifleman action. Not 100% sure, but you might want to check before ordering!

I would check for sure as it must resemble one of the manufactures.
