Scope ring height and bolt operation: Do you take your scope ring height into consideration when operating the bolt for more clearance?

I don't think I've ever had a rifle where the scope was so low that it interfered with bolt manipulation.

Normally, the objective bell forces you to mount the scope high enough that it's not an issue.

One thing to be mindful of, though, is if you use a throw lever.  Make sure when it's all the way to the right that it's not in the way of the bolt when you cycle it.



If you want more specific info, it might be worth mentioning the specific rifle and scope you're planning to use, there may be someone here with that setup already.

I went ahead & mounted the scope (Razor GenII) in the rings I had for it (.92 height I believe) and worked the action in a couple of positions. I believe it will work out fine. I was concerned that when trying to operate the bolt with my thumb on top (between bolt and scope) the clearance would be tight, thus thinking about taller rings. Should be good to go. -Chad
