running out of elevation.

I was at the range and I usually use hold over to get to 400 but I decided to dial for range and ran out of elevation. I got it to 400 but it was raised all the way to stop. TC venture, Bushnell scope. My question is do they make a 20moa ring set or do I need a rail ? Has any one replaced the bases on a Venture with a rail ?

Re: running out of elevation.

Burris signature rings and offset insert kit will do what you need.

Re: running out of elevation.

It NEVER hurts to upgrade to a good qaulity rail (EGW, Farrell, NF, etc...), and a good set of rings (Seekins, TPS TSR, NF, Leupy MK4, etc...).

I've about got all mine swapped over to rail systems, so I can remove and interchange scopes without having to re-cant them all to make sure they're level, because once they're locked into those rings, they ain't moving left or right, as long as you got them properly torqued in there.

+1 to what mudrunner said.

A quality base is so often overlooked as a critical componet of a set up. Never hurts to bed the base as well.

Re: running out of elevation.

IMO, either the Burris Z rings with inserts or the +MOA rail will work. It'd be less expensive to go the +MOA rail and you can always add the Z rings with inserts if you need to fine tune it a little more.
Be sure to bed that rail ...

Re: running out of elevation.

Thanks guys, I looked into the Burris setup and it would be cheaper to go with a rail I just hope I can get one to fit my action contour I can custom fit it if the screw holes line up if not it might be easier to use the Burris rings...

What scope are you running that runs out of adjustment at 400 yards? Even using 308 data and 168 sierras I get less than 5 MOA in correction. If your scope only has 5 MOA in elevation I say get a new scope
