Quick help with rings on a Ruger M77 please...

Just took my Ruger M77 out of its box (used), it had the factory rings installed.

The rear ring base is somewhat taller than the front ring base.

I cannot install my new leupold sight as the front of it hits the barrel by a few mm and prevents the scope from seating properly in the front ring.

So:

* Can I just swap the front & rear rings (taller up front)? If so will the scope have enough vertical adjustment to compensate?

* Return the scope for a smaller one (I'd hate this).

* Buy a bigger rifle and a smaller scope (I'd prefer not to quite yet, but if I must to make these two parts match at the risk of ending up with not one but two rifles...)
