Welcome to the Forum

Glad to see you here.

I moved your post to the optics section to get more attention. All the best...

It depends on barrel thickness and the bolt handle. There's no way to know without trynig...BUT, a 50mm scope causes turkey neck every time. Big scopes have to be high.

There is no safe direction to point an unsafe gun.

Pick a Leupold scope with the same size glass and tube as yours. Then go tongue link below and put the scope and your gun in.

Even if you choose not to use their rings, you will know for sure what is needed for your specific rifle.

I mounted a Burris FullField II 3.5x-10x 50 mm scope on my WIN M70 30-06 using Burris Signature Zee medium rings which left approximately 1/8" clearance between the Object bell and barrel. I really like this combination.

Same setup with high rings.

Thanks shooters can't wait until the T/C compass 6.5 hits the stores and I can decide on 50mm optic .I know why T/C but I have to have at least one gun with 5r . At least I'll spend as much on optics as the gun .
