    I think it depends on the barrel profile and how far forward the objective goes when you've set it up.

    That's helpful! I have my father's T3 sporter on my ticket. When I use it, I fit a S&B 8x56 1" in place of his 'scope.
    Although he's got the rifle at the moment, I've just fished the 'scope out of the cupboard and measured: it is on 1" medium Optilock rings, which give enough clearance for Butler Creeks also.

    High Optilocks are very high!

    Yup. I guess you might get away with lows, which would be neater.
    With the mediums and the BC lens-cap I still have room to pass oily 4x2 over the barrel under the objective.

    Best thing would probably be to try them and see how it goes. My S&B is an oldish model, the outside diameter of the objective end is ~63mm, and ~67mm with the Butler Creek on.
