To be sure, post make, model & caliber of firearm...make,style, model # of rings if available. Some firearms, for example, have an extra long bolt throw, and would require a higher set of rings.
Someone may have the exact setup and provide personal experience.
You should be able to go with low rings even though medium would be fine. I use the low Leupold rings on all my Remington 700 rifles and most have a 3-10x40 power scope on them. I like to have the scope as close to the bore as possible without toughing it.
Its always best to have your scope mounted as low as possible. Helps you come to bare and get it in your eye the fastest. If you can mount the low's then it would be best so that your cheek weld will be right on.
The gunsmith looked at my set up and just told me that I will have to go with the medium height leupold rings as the power ring on the Weaver Grandslam will be tight against the bases and won't turn with the low mount. Thanks everyone for your input.
A perk of majoring in wildlife biology in college is the plethora of hunting knowledge that you collect throughout your course load. One of the most important factors in whether an area can hold large quantities of animals or produce large antlers is forage.
Most universities, state schools and even community colleges offer basic botany courses and plant ID courses. Although it might not be feasable for the average middle age hunter to pay tuition and go back to college to learn hunting...
