Scope ring question - max size
I purchased a set of Weaver 30mm rings for one of my scopes that have a 50mm objective. On the package of the rings it states 'fits up to 44mm objective lens'.
The 50mm scope fits well on these rings, what is the significance of the package saying it is for objectives up to 44mm? Could I damage the 50 mm scope by using them? I would assume not since the scope objective clears the barrel by a good margin but I thought I would check.
