Sub-panel & The 6 Disconnect Rule

I just bought a Murray 12-position sub-panel.
I want to feed it from my main breaker panel via either a 50 amp or 60 amp breaker. Any suggestions 50/60?
The main breaker is in the basement.
The sub-panel will go into a full-sized attic. (Full accessability on a wall)
Since the sub-panel has no main breaker, do I have a problem with The Six Disconnect Rule?
Why would they make a 12 position sub-panel if this rule applied?

No problem with the disconnect rule as it will not apply in your situation. The sub-panel is fed by one breaker in the main panel, so your covered. Be sure to keep the neutral and ground seperate in the sub-panel.
