I am getting ready to order a set of seekins rings and base for my remington Milspec 5R, I am going to use a Leupold
Mark 4 30mm tube 3.5-10x40

What size rings should I order for this setup...?
Low, Med, Med-High, High??

    Definitely the 30mm Lows. I had a set of Seekins Lows on a seekins 20MOA base on my SPS with a 50mm scope and had plenty of clearance.

    Yes Seekins 30mm lows. I just sold my 5r. I used 30mm lows with my 44mm scope.

    Just a thought.......

    If in the future you're gonna upgrade to a new MTU contour barrel, and maybe a 50mm scope, you'll be needing mediums. It'll save a time and money now to go that route, that's if you can any mediums around.....
