    how much clearance do you have between the scope and the rifle? you may be able to go to low mounts, if not then you would need to go to separate mounts and bases, and see if that can lower things.Although the scope may be the limiting factor.

    I had the same problem with mine. I got a set of Remmy 700 bases from ebay, they lower the mounts by about 6 mm

    I've got rings from these folk recently. http://www.opticswarehouse.co.uk/cat...t=Scope+Mounts

    Keep in mind that as you lower the scope, you still need bolt handle clearance. The 243 Ackley listed below has a straight bolt and that stops me getting the scope as low as I would like. Regards JCS
