I recently installed Burris rings with the offset kit on my Savage with Bushnell 4200. Using the maximum offset, I am zero'd at 200 with about 1.5 minutes left to bottom out. I think this is a pretty sweet set up, less than 40 bucks from optics planet. I have enough 'down' to allow for different loads, and as much 'up' as practically possible.
