I recently had a new scope installed on my Savage 300 rifle - 9x50 they used my old rings and now it only clears the barrel by 1

    That is close, but I would have to say if it isn't touching the barrel you should be good to go. Like pineywoods mentions take it to the range or some place you can set a target up. Than take some cold barrel shots and some hot barrel shots and see what happens.

    Watch that close space when in the woods that some debris doesn't get in between the scope and barrel, because it could create a wedge pushing the barrel and scope apart which will affect your zero.

    Why don't you try it on the range? It's hard for me to imagine a real-life scenario in which the barrel would get hot enough to expand 1/16th. If it works there, it'll work in the field. Good hunting to you.

    that is pretty small i wouldnt think the barrel should hit the scope but hey why take a chance it only costs 30 bucks for some weaver rings

    I recently had a new scope installed on my Savage 300 rifle - 9x50 they used my old rings and now it only clears the barrel by 1/16 of inch - is that enough space or should I buy different rings
