Default Savage Mark II FV Scope Mounting ??

I have just purchased a Savage Mark II FV and a BSA PT624X44MD Platinum Target Scope. Can someone give me a recommendation on what mounting rings to get for it. I know the scope has 1 inch tubes but not sure on the height i should be buying. I will be using the rifle for bench rest style shooting.

Thanks,

Mike

Does this scope have "Side Focus" or Front Bell "Adjustable Focus"? Also if it has Bull Barrel, it could make a difference. For my Simmons 4-12x44 w/SF, it required HIGH rings(Ruger 77/22 with taper barrel, rings came with rifle). For my Weaver V16 4-16x42 w/A/O it took HIGH rings(Weatherby 243 with taper barrel), because it has A/O(adjustable objective). I have a Marlin 17HMR and mounted a BSA Sweet 17, 3-12x40 w/A/O and it too took high rings and clears bull barrel by 1/8". I use Weaver Quad Lok rings and they work very well from WalMart at a reasonable price of $11. So if your scope has front bell Adjustable Objective on top of 44MM lens, you might need to go to "Extra High" rings to clear barrel.

my $.02

Here is how i decide,

Set scope on table, measure the distance from the botton of the tube to table. get rings that are at least 1/8" taller than that and you should be good for clearance of most any barrel.
