I just used taller mounts for my 527 American in .221 Rem Fireball. I bought a set of cheapo Weaver see through mounts. Worked great to mount the 6-24x42 BSA I put on it. Note I have a long neck, and prefer my scopes mounted so that I do not have to scrunch my neck to see through the scope. A lot of people have shot it. Every one of them like the higher up scope.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
