When it comes to choosing the best scope rings, you need to determine how high an item you require for your rifle. There is a range of other factors to consider, too. For starters, you must figure out the entire bell diameter of your piece. Both the objective bell and the barrel must not touch the item once it is mounted on your rifle.
Next, you need to consider the bolt handle’s ability to stay clear of the eyepiece. A lot of shooters prefer to select the lowest option available to meet the right criteria. Also, keep in mind that when you shoulder your rifle, the viewfinder should fall naturally into position. If you need to adjust your face placement and move around to get a clear view, your placement is either too low or too high on the firearm.
To determine an approximate measurement of the height, take the objective lens diameter and add around 2 to 4 mm to the overall thickness of the body, then divide the total by two to get to the correct height. This total number will be the distance from the exact center to the very outer tube.

How to Determine the Proper Scope Ring Height
It’s essential that when you are in the process of determining how high of a ring you require for your rifle that you also consider the variety of factors that must be taken into account. First, you will need to consider the entire objective bell diameter of your scope. It’s imperative that both the barrel and the objective bell do not touch once your scope is mounted to your rifle. The second factor that you will need to consider is the bolt handle's ability to remain clear of the eyepiece. While many shooters will often suggest that you should select the lowest rings that are available and meet the correct criteria, it’s also incredibly important to remember that when you are shouldering your rifle, you should notice that the scope should naturally fall into position. If you have to move around and adjust yourself and face placement on the stock to obtain a clear view, then your scope is either placed too high or too low on your firearm. This is why it’s important to select the correct ring height to enable you to naturally sight through your rifle scope. In this article, we will be taking a look at how to determine the proper scope ring height for your rifle.
How should I measure my scope height?
An abundance of rifle scopes are identified by a variety of numbers that will often appear in the following format: Minimum magnification plus Maximum magnification x Objective lens diameter in millimeters.
To gain an approximate measurement of scope height, simply take the objective lens diameter then add 2 to 4 mm for the overall thickness of your scope’s body, before dividing the total by two to determine your scope’s height. The total number will be the distance from the exact center of your scope’s body to the very outer of the tube.
TIP: If you need to convert your any measurements from inches to millimeters, merely multiply your measurement by 25.4.
Measuring ring height
Ring heights are known to vary depending on the type of manufacturer. This means that a significantly high ring from one brand of the manufacturer can be an entirely different height when compared to an alternative manufacturer. Typically, there are two accepted methods when it comes to measuring ring height.
Method 1: Measuring from the base to the ring center.
If your selected manufacturer uses this type of method, then this is exceptionally easy. Just take your base height before adding it to the ring height. If it appears to be the smallest combination available which is still much more significant than your overall scope height, you have effortlessly found your right base and ring combination.
Method 2: Measuring from the base to the ring edge.
If your selected manufacturer is known to measure from the base through to the inner edge of the ring, it means a little more calculation is required. If your scope features a 1" scope tube, merely add 12.7mm to the total height of the base and scope ring to determine as to whether it's more than your overall scope height measurement. Remember, if your scope features a 30mm scope tube, you will need to add 15mm to the combined height of both the base and scope ring to determine if it's more than your overall scope height measurement.
Other factors you may wish to consider
The methods listed above do not take other key factors into consideration. So it’s important to consider bolt action clearance or even the presence of an open sight and various other accessories that you may wish to equip. Always allow for extra space when considering these factors.
