Scope ring height

Just picked up a Ruger American in .270 win for $325 brand new I have a vortex crossfire ii 4-16x50mm
Was wondering what size scope rings I would need I want the scope to sit as close as possible to the barrel
Thanks

I'm not 100% certain, since I don't have that particular scope on an American, but I can't recall ever getting a 50mm scope into medium rings on any rifle. Always high rings. 44's and 42's can sometimes be on the border, but the 50's seem to universally use highs.

That is what my research has told me too, do the math or you will run into problems and need to re-order as I did. ;-)
