1" scope rings + 50mm objective scope

I'm planning on moving my ol' 6-24x50mm Nikon Monarch over to my new long range AR build. I need some new scope rings to do it, so here's the question: will "high" mounts keep the 50mm objective from touching the flat top base of an AR? I know "ultra-high" or "extra-high" scope rings will do the job, but I'd like to keep the scope as close to the rail as possible. It doesn't need to clear any flip up iron sights or anything.

EDIT:
Disregard, I figured it out using the numbers from both manufacturers' websites. The answer is no, I need rings taller than "high". Just barely though. High scope rings are about 2mm too short for that optic.
