Rings for 527 Varmint
« on: September 18, 2016, 11:29:29 AM »
I ordered a 527 Varmint in .204 Ruger and would like to mount a Mueller 8-32x44 scope on it.  It's a 30 mm tube and has a large ocular(eyepiece) at 1.71".  Any idea what rings will keep the scope as low as possible and clear the bolt handle?  Thanks for helping a newbie!!

Or just let me know what scope and rings you are using and I will look up the specs on them.

I've got the same rifle, Weaver Classic V series 6-24x42 AO 1 inch, use medium Warne fixed rings (Maxima), objective clears barrel by about 1/8 - 5/32 inch. No problem with bolt handle clearing eye piece. Hope that helps.

   watch out for Vortex scopes the Warne medium rings work great for a leopold but not for the vortex...........
