I'll be purchasing a POF P308 rifle in the near future, and it has a full length rail for optics mounting. Any idea what size rings I'll need to clear the rail with a Nightforce 5.5-22X50 NXS? I know the medium NF rings I have right now are too short.

Any rings that measure 0.66" from base to bottom of the ring will work (or 1.25" from base to center of ring). That is the minimum height ring that ensure enough room for the bell of the scope, with BC scope covers, to clear the rail.

I use a 1.375 NF unimount that the 5.5-22x50 will work on the POF with BC cap if you go with a 20 moa mount.
