I am planning to do a partial mash of a rye pale ale, and I read that half of the grain bill should be base malt. Does my rye malt count as a base malt or should I consider it specialty? From what I've read, I think it does, I just want to be sure. Thanks in advance.

Yep. The Briess rye malt datasheet, for exampe, indicates a diastatic power of 105 Lintner, which is plenty strong. Just make sure you don't get flaked rye by mistake.
