7mm-08 Vanguard Compact and VX II 3-9x50 do i need Talley med or highs

I am wanting to put a Leupold VX II  3-9x50 on a new Vanguard Compact in 7mm-08.
Should I order the medium or high Talley set? I'm thinking if the mediums work I may have limited movement for eye relief due to the 50mm front but if I use the high set it will definitely require quite a comb buildup.
Does anyone with a similar set-up have recommendations? Thanks in advance.

Call Talley on Monday and they'll tell you exactly what you need. ( I believe its gonna be the high Talley light weights, jmo)

Thank you! Believe it or not I got a weekend response to my email to Talley!  High rings it is.

Give Weatherby a call. A number of years ago, when Leupold first came out with the now discontinued VX-7, I picked up one - 3.5 - 14 x 50 - for my stainless Mk V .300 Weatherby. Not all mounts worked properly for that combination. I called Weatherby and they told me exactly what to use. No complaints whatsoever.

I have a vanguard 1st lite in 257. I mounted a Burris veracity 3 x15 ,50mm and mediums worked fine,  scope covers clear too.
