Have you checked the manufacturer's recommendations?

Like Judski88 said, check your manufacturer's recomendations. They usually provide an adequate way to determine ring gap based upon usage. The way my CP pistons came they gave me an equation of "xx gap per inch of bore". I cannot recall what my forged pistons are at but that was the included info from CP.
