I have a scope with a 34 mm tube and 56 Objective. Can anyone tell me what height rings I need?

TIA

1.00 inch.  Medium.  You mite squeeze in shorter but probably wonít like any better depending on barrel, base, stock, and head size,

RMEF Weatherby Vanguard 6.5x300

Vortex Venom 5x25x56

Haven't bought bases or rings. Need both

It has been a few years since I have set up a new rifle., Don't remember 34 mm tubes. All Cabelas had was Vortex medium height rings.

Vortex or Seekins precision matched rings, or NightForce, and a high-quality steel rail.  Id not get an extended rail as it may interfere with the bell.  I had medium rings with a 56 bell but it was a 30mm tube.  Gonna cost ya !!


Maybe call or visit Black Sheep Idaho.

I would for sure put a rail on it if it doesnít have one.

I mounted a Venom to my Rem 700.  First I put on a rail, but it blocked the access to the chamber by a bit.  Maybe my rail did not have enough cut-out, dunno.  I switched-back to a two-piece base, much better chamber access.

Used Warne Steel rings.  I have several pairs of Warne; I like their design with the clamp screw on the top, and the fact they are steel and reasonable priced.  Think I used medium.

Use Talley Ltwt aluminum and be done with it.
Depending on barrel contour you might get away with Medium.
Highs are only 1/10 inch higher. Totally skip a rail mount.(Unnecessary)

Talley arenít even in the same league as any of the other rings mentioned. I had Talley, they flex and bend. Wasnít impressed. My buddy lapped his and watching them flex I said never again

You don't lap Talley ring for 1, and they don't flex! Do you think the scope tube is made of steel?
I worked with and for Leupold for 37 years and mounted Thousands of scopes.

I told him not to, he didnít listen. Iím just not impressed with them compared to the nightforce ultralight. Especially on a heavy recoil gun, I would imagine a 6.5-300 belts you.

All good. Just some suggestions. It's not a bench gun for sure.
I'm sure he'll make a good choice. :tup:

Although I do believe the Talley light weight would stand up to 6.5-300, and I have Talley light weight on a 6.5 cm light weight storm (<6.5lb w/scope). I think if I was running the very heavy scope he mentioned in the op, I would opt for a heavier more significant ring-rail configuration.  If He was running a much lighter hunting scope, Id say Talley all the way.   :twocents:
