20 MOA rail, 50mm objective, 30mm tube.

Can I use low rings, or need mediums or highs?

What brand?

depends on the brand your optical axis might fit w mediums - weaver/pic bases raise the plane so the traditional stand point of high w a 50mm could be wrong - scope tube length would be another factor to ring height etc etc

I really really really hope you're wrong. I just put mine in new rings a month ago, and am waiting for my 20moa to arrive, I don't want to switch the rings again cry

You might be Ok. But sometimes kicking the rear skyward makes the objective touch the barrel. Scope length plays a part here And different manufacturers have different measurements for low, medium, and high.

I hope I'm wrong too.

I have some Burris Signature Z lows that I bought a while back. When scope gets here I'll mock it up with those and see how much higher I need to go then order some rings. Hopefully can find just the right height to put the objective just off the barrel...

I used Burris Tact rings, Medium, on my Ziess with a 50MM Bell on a EGW 20MOA Base and just used the same on my 34MM tube Bushnell elite on a EGW 20Moa and it clears too.

These?

I sure like they are measured in SAE instead of metric.

Low-Medium rings worked perfectly. I used Warne Maxima Steel low rings (.250" from top of base to bottom of ring mounting surface...Decided on the Warne rings as I've used them in the past on several rifles and never had any issues. Mounted scope, leveled reticle, snugged everything up, then went to bore sight it, and it was dead nuts in the center without twisting on a single turret!!!
