Can anyone tell me the height from the rail to the center of the bore? I
am trying to decide what height rings to get.

Thanks for your help.

I'm confused on how that will help you determine ring height.

I know right...

Most people tell us what rifle/rail they have along with scope model/size. Only then can we help you out with ring height.

There are a ton of people that are running the RPR. Why not just find out what ring type, height, and scope they are running?

I was wondering so I could run a ballistic calaulator and try and figure out which height would offer the best second zero. May not be much difference, but I was just going to help out where ever I can. The bell size won't really matter because I am currently planning on running a vortex viper 2.5-10x32 HSLR

For example. Using Blackhills 175 BTHP as an example and using bore to optic height as the variable.


2" above bore give a 50 and a second zero at about 140


2.5" above bore give a 50 and a second zero at about 175


3" above bore give a 50 and a second zero at about 205

I want to be able to work on the calculations and get my exact zero on the fly, but till I am confident I am trying to set up the rifle to have a good first and second zero.
