Funny how scope manufactures size their objective lenses. I installed a Cabela's Pine Ridge tactical 17 on my new Savage 93 TR 17hmr. It is a 6-18x40mm. I compared the 40mm objective with the BSA Sweet 17's objective. The lense on the Cabela's scope is quite a bit smaller. Most of you are going to say that the BSA has a rotating objective were the Cabela's does not (it's a side focus) but even so the glass doesn't seem to be the same size even though they both state that they are 40mm. Anyhow, the Warne medium rings gave plenty of room under the objective. I ended up using Warne high rings for the BSA Sweet 17 mounted up on my Savage 93R BTVS.
