Setting up a Tikka CTR 6.5 for PRS style shooting and topping it with a 4.5-18x44 Bushnell LRHS. I'll be using Nightforce Ultralite rings just not sure what height to go with. Obviously I want to go as low as possible but still unsure on which height to get... Planning on using a cheek riser/rest of some sort and not sure whether or not to get the 1" or 1.125?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure what kind of base that rifle has, but I just put a NF rail on my Browning A-bolt and used the lowest NF UL's with a 50mm scope and still have plenty of clearance.

Thanks for the reply 5MilesBack. I ended up ordering their 1" rings it's going to have a 20MOA rail so hopefully its not too high but I'll know in a couple days when everything shows up.

I just used 1" (medium)NF ultra lite rings for my 5.5-22x56mm on my Tikka CTR with 20 MOA rail. I just took a 4.5-18x44 and used the .885"(lows) for that scope. Both instances I had enough space to run Vortex defender scope caps without issue. Hope that helps.
