Mounting lower to the bore is not just more comfortable; it is demonstrably better for precision shooting in general. Height-over-bore should be as low as you can stand it.
I can't even fit BUIS under mine, but I also never intend to remove the scope. 1.25" from the rail to the center of the scope. Have 45 degree KAC BUIS on it, I like them.
I guess I should have a pic of it since I'm talking about it.
