I’m looking for a ring recommendation for my rifle build. The build is an American Rifle Archimedes in a MPA Matrix Pro chassis with a 6.5 creedmoore 18” barrel. The scope is a Vortex Razor hd lht 4.5 - 22 ( I feel I should have gotten the Razor Gen II)

Not sure what height or moa the rings should be. I’m use to buying LaRue scope mounts for my AR’s but this is my first bolt action.

    Use a 20 MOA pic rail. Place your scope on the pic rail with a stack of quarters under the flat spot at the turrets. Place more or less quarters until you get clearance that is acceptable to you under the front bell. Carefully measure the distance from the top of one of the ridges on the pic rail to the bottom of the straight portion of the scope tube. Now go find that (or close) height rings.

    You want ARC M10 or MBRACE rings. They have instructions on their site on how to pick a height, involves pennies as @Aftermath mentioned. If you want a one-piece mount, ARC makes those too.

    That design is way more user-friendly than anything else out there; the only reason in my mind to get something else would be if you were trying to shave an ounce off your build with ultralight rings.

    My build is heavy so I’m not really trying to save weight. I appreciate the reply’s and I will try the quarter / penny measuring.

    This chart will at least let you know what height ring you will need.

    If you're not sure what the table means, it is the number of pennies stacked on top of your mount to the bottom of the scope with the bell of the scope clearing everything.

    MOA will depend on how far you intend to be shooting.

    I’ve had good experiences with:

    Vortex PMR/Seekins
    NF ultralight
    Badger Ordnance
    APA
    Hawkins

    ZCO ring mount, but you’d need a new scope.

    I've only ever used Seekins and I have zero reason to try anything else. They are great.
