Scope Mounting Question: Winchester Model 70 pre-64?

I am buying a Leupold VX-III scope from Cabela's for my .30/06. It has a 40 mm Objective Diameter. I am thirteen want to mount the scope as low as possible so I can see through the scope while my cheek is resting on the comb. How high of a scope mounting ring should I buy? The sizes are super low, low, medium, high, and super high. The rifle is a pre-64 Winchester Model 70 .30-06

You'll want to get rings that keep the scope as low as possible while not allowing the objective bell to contact the barrel. If you have a standard sporter barrel, you can get away with a lower ring height than you would with a heavy bull or varmint barrel. Also, it depends upon what type of rings you want to get, using a weaver base will elevate the scope a bit more than double-dovetail bases, so lower rings can be used with weaver bases than with other mounting systems, while still keeping the scope at the same height above the barrel. The Leupold is a very good scope, and your pre-64 M-70 is a very good rifle, so don't try to save a few dollars by going cheap on your mounting system.

If you are dead set on keeping the clearance between barrel and objective to an absolute minimum, your best source would be to give Brownells a call and talk to some of the people there. Even if you don't buy from them now, you will eventually. Any 13 year old that is undertaking these kinds of things now will be doing a lot more as the years progress, and the Brownells catalog will be the source of a great many projects yet to come.

Sounds like a nice rig you're putting together there. Good shooting!
