Re: Is 50 MOA enough?

No, you didn't ruffle my feathers. I have just screwed up a gun nearly every way possible and know lots of things that are not wise to try to do. All of that stuff is by my personal experience.

Take a look at the Burris website and the rings. They do what they are advertised to do.

One note is that Burris coats them and the screws with a lot of oil. You need to degrease everything including the inside threads or else you will have things start to work loose at very inconvenient times (one more thing I have done wrong in my life).

I should be receiveing a set from Graf tomorrow being as I am doing exactly what I advised you to do. A zero cant base and Burris rings with inserts.

BB,

I can't beleive you're doing this to me, I got me a 20 MOA base for my 300 RUM Sendero, on top of that I used the Burris Signature Rings just because I needed LOTS of adjustment. I glassed the tappered base to insure perfect contact all the way, but I'm not 100% sure if I used release agent!!!! LOL LOL LOL LOL [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

I Think I did!!!! LOL .... I hope I did! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] I never thought I'd be laughing so much over this.... I guess I hate... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] the Idea of whacking the side of my head with a brick!!!!!

BB, you do this when I was begining to like you!!!

DONTSTROKEME,

You'll be happy with the Burris Signature rings. I have two 300 Remingtons Ultra Mags that are using them and I'm very happy with them. Two years ago I went to Colorado Elk hunting; it was a rough trip and shook the garbage out of the rifles in the truck, when we got home, Nevada, my rifle was still dead on target. Just don't forget to buy the extra inserts for about $10.00 bucks more and as BB said, get the oil out of everything including the inserts.
Don't hesitate to ask if you have more questions, the worst that can happen BB will give me a heart attack!
Good Luck!!!

Re: Is 50 MOA enough?

On my last gun I bought a 10moa farrell base and they even made me one in silver so i could have a little extra room without having to go to 20. My normal shooting is less than 250 but I got a new barrel and wanted to be able to play a little bit.

Re: Is 50 MOA enough?

Which base would be the best for the money? I can't find the burris bases in stock anywhere?

Re: Is 50 MOA enough?

I am impressed with my Farrell. I put a 20 moa on my 308 and used the non concentric burris inserts. my 4.5-14 buckmaster was bottomed out at about 450. The elev adj was centered at 1k. That was a little much but both base and rings are great. I've got 3 sets of zee rings now. 1 on a 700 with some funky problems. I've got the +/-20 insert in the back for elev correction and the +/- 10 in the front for windage. The rings work just like burris says.
