I want to raise the scope up and out more towards the barrel, because in it's current configuration the scope is too low and it's really up close to my face even with the PRS Stock adjusted. Any recommendations?

Thanks :D

American defense scope mounts. They have different heights and different forward positions available.

Others have already suggested one of the cheapest and one of the most expensive options. Here is a reasonable compromise somewhere in between:

(If you don't mind spending the coin and a QD mount with return to zero is important to you, I really like the AD mounts as well)

Thanks so much! :D

BTW Shark, does RifleGear by any chance carry the YHM Rail Extension (6 inch) ? I'm planning on going that route (cheapest :P) and since I live pretty close to you guys I thought I might pick it up there.

Don't forget Larue

SPR-E Scope Mount (http://www.laruetactical.com/larue-tactical-spr-e-lt-139)

I'm not sure if it places the scope as high as you want it. The description states that it will place the center of the scope 1.5" above the rail.

or the FLT scope mount (http://www.gggaz.com/flt-scope-mount.html) from GG&G.

The YHM one works good with Leupold qr rings. Quick scope removal , BUIS fit nicely under scope. Also RD cowitnesses nice.

We carry this one, that will raise it 1/2" and move it forward 1 1/4":
