Default Scope rings on 700

What are the lowest weaver style rings I can mount on a rem 700 for a 50mm scope with a 30mm tube.

Depends......
How thick is the base?
How long is the scope?
Short action or long action?

Typically it's going to be either medium or high depending on the above.

What scope did you order?

Leupold PMR bases?

Zeiss victory 4-16x50. Those maybe the bases not sure. What rings and bases could I use to mount it as low as possible.

I don't know off the top of my head with out actually being able to measure the scope, bases, and rings.

You are likely going to need high PMR rings with that scope and the Leupold bases you have. It's fairly short scope at only 13.25" with a short tube so the objective lens is going to be right over the chamber area.
