For those who have the Bell & Carlson Medalist A2 stock, what height rings do you find work best with that stock? Please let me know make and model and I can look up dimensions. Also, scope tube size and objective diameter is needed. I can then calculate what will work best for my needs.

Thank you.

Hey Phil, the stock isn't correlated with ring height. It's all about the action, barrel contour, and base height.

My Remington SPS Tactical you saw the other day was in a B&C Medalist Light Tactical Stock (http://www.midwayusa.com/Product/486263/bell-and-carlson-medalist-light-tactical-rifle-stock-remington-700-bdl-short-action-with-aluminum-bedding-block-system-varmint-barrel-channel-synthetic-black). It had a Leupold Mark 4 4.5-14x50 (http://www.midwayusa.com/Product/936654/leupold-mark-4-long-range-tactical-m1-rifle-scope-30mm-tube-45-14x-50mm-side-focus-tmr-reticle-matte) sitting in Badger Standard Height 30mm Rings (http://www.midwayusa.com/Product/178576/badger-ordnance-picatinny-style-30mm-maximized-rings-matte-low) on a Badger 20 MOA Base (http://www.midwayusa.com/Product/562717/badger-ordnance-1-piece-maximized-picatinny-style-20-moa-elevated-scope-base-remington-700-short-action).

Well, the stock doesn't correlate to the minimum ring height, but depending on the stock and your face you may need taller rings. But that's what stocks with adjustable cheek pieces, or aftermarket cheek pads are for(assuming that the minimum ring height is too high for you). If the minimum ring height is too low, then you'd need a different stock or get higher rings.
