Looks like a 541 rail will not work on a BH. Distance between front and rear is way too long.
Knight got back to me and said the leupold 541 two piece works on the big horn, they were cheap so  bought a set.

  correct. 2 piece are good to go. Rail is a no go.

I think Warne also makes a set if you prefer steel over aluminum
