    think folk will need the objective diameter of the scope to advise on this.

    I have Sports-Match UK mounts on my Howa but a 6x42 not 8x56.
    If you email Sports-Match with your details of rifle and scope (Brand, model, spec) they usually reply promptly and advise you which mounts are the best fit - from their extensive range.
    Your could of course fit 'Premium branded' mounts but Sports-Match does the job for me, on three different rifles, never ever had to make adjustments or tighten.
    A few wisdom's:
    • Do not be seduced by the marketing-men
    • If you can get closer, get closer.
    • If you can get more stable, get more stable.

    Hi mate,
    you will probably need the 30mm high mounts to fit a 20mm picatinny rail,

    You don't say what cartridge, but....Mounting a large scope up high puts a lot of leverage on the juncture of rings to the rail, so get something sturdy with a wide footprint. I like the Warne steel 30mm High rings. And if you get the QR rings, they pretty much return to zero when swapping out optics.

    Go the Warne web site and it will show how high the different rings, on their bases ( close to your rail in height) put the center of the scopes above the barrel.

    Dont just assume your new mounts are a matched pair when you open the packet
