When I put it on with normal scope rings I had to stretch my neck way forward to get to the scope, it was very uncomfortable. So I got a mount that will push it back to me, instead of me stretching forward to it. I prefer shooting from a little farther back then most people. I'd rather be comfortable while taking my shots rather than forcing myself to fit the gun. I'm also a little over weight which probably gets in the way too.

Did you adjust the eye relief on the back of the scope when it was in regular rings? That scope should mount good in low or maybe even ultra low rings. I have the same mount on my loaded with medium rings and a 50mm objective, I might could have got by with low. If you are going to shoot from a bench all the time the way it is will work. In a real world position it is going to be cumbersome.

The best way to adjust eye relief is to hold the rifle in both hands and have a friend slide the scope fore and aft until you get the proper image.

If you can't properly grasp the forend while looking thru the scope, it is too far rearward.

I adjusted the focus at the very back of the scope til it was crystal clear. It's nice glass.

As another guy who has been cursed with short-ass arms, I've constantly been in the position of adjusting myself to the rifle. I pulled this cheapie Bushnell 3-9x off my air rifle to test fit for length and height on my Scout in preparation for the Leupold Mk4 LR/T 4.5-14x50mm I have on order. Even as far back as this scope is mounted, I still have to crane my neck some to get a complete sight picture. Granted the eye relief on the Leupold is different (4.5" to 3.6", low mag to high, respectively), but this should give me a good idea of where to mount the scope.

The setup will be the Gen 4 Springfield aluminum mount, Badger Ordnance 30mm Medium-height rings with the Leupold. I suspect it may sit a little further forward than the Bushnell, but not by much.
