Just stick with Leupold bases and a set of LOW rings will fit that scope just fine.

I have a Mark V and use Leupold dual-dovetail bases for my scope. The Leupold part number is 51701 to fit the Mark V receiver. This is a matte finish on the rings.

The confusion is due to the difference between the Vanguard rifles and the Mark V rifles. If I am not mistaken, you can use the same bases that the Vanguard uses on a Remington model 700, but if you use that base on a Mark V you will have a greatly reduced amount of useful adjustment in your scope.
