I just purchased a scope at cableas and we were trying different rings for the scope. Its a Leupold vxr 3x9x40.
I know there are low med and high scope rings...now i keep hearing that high is not good, becasue the scope is 'off' of the gun. but for me it seemed like the high rings were the best fit. the smaller rings i seemed to be squishing my face to the gun to get the view thru the scope. now i can shoulder the gun and bam..im right in the 'scope zone' Am i missing something? I can see where you might have a tendency to bump the scope more if its 'off' the gun. Ive never had a gun 'fit' me before so this is all relatively new for me. Please advise.
cheek def on the stock...cheek/lower jaw..... i matched up with my older gun which appears to be pretty much the same maybe a touch lower..im not sure how much difference there is between low mid and high...its not looking like a raised 4x4 lol...seems to be pretty close to how the other was relative to the barrell..maybe a touch higher... then again..the old gun was an OLD remington 700 with a bushnell scope wheras this is a new savage model 111 with a thumbhole stock..i can only assume the stocks are going to be different..... on both guns my stock seems to be hitting my face in approx the same spot.
