I would say yes I run low on my 42obj and medium on my 4x16x50. I like it as close to the barrel I can get without touching

Is there a really high cheek weld on your stock? Closer to the barrel, the better.

No there isnt. Damn it i should have paid more attention.

Heres something else to add to the equation(maybe). Im going to be also running a can on this rifle at all times. Will that make a difference? The can is about 1/2" higher than the barrel level.

Ive spent most of my time on the AR platform. This is pretty new to me.

Thanks for the help thus far

I have medium rings with a 44 mm objective and think lows would work better.

I run high ring Talleys on mine and it works great. I also wonder if it's me being a big 6'3" monkey tho.

Next time you're looking through your scope, set it max magnification and then put a finger out in front of the objective. It may dim the brightness of the image a little but I bet you won't even see your finger.

Sight offset is easily overcome in the ballistic calculator and with a stock pack to build up the cheek weld to the correct height, adjust until you have natural point of aim. Having said all that, I run high rings on everything, but everything is a 50mm objective. You can go to medium rings with your objective. You will see the top of the suppressor at low magnification, but it should only be in the extreme 6 o'clock area of the sight picture.

Best I've seen on how to determine your ring height.

I used to get the scope in hand then stack pennies on a rail until the scope would sit on the pennies. Then I would measure the stack of pennies to see how tall of rings I needed. Its the short bus method, I know, but it works.
