Burris PosAlign offset inserts

Has anyone used these? I like the PosAlign set-up but thought I'd try the offset inserts to pick up a little more elevation without using a 1 piece canted base.

I use the Burris rings and inserts on most of my rifles. You can can get quite a bit of elevation by using a set of the off-set insert in the front, rear or both. Just remember that they should be installed in sets. A +10 should be mated with a -10 in the same ring; +5 with -5 and so on.

Re: Burris PosAlign offset inserts

So if I use a -10 on the bottom front and a +10 on bottom rear, that should give me about 20 MOA. Is that correct?

More like 15 MOA, plus or minus. It depends on the distance between the rings.

All,

I wrote this a few days ago. I didn't receive any replies, maybe it was in 'stealth mode'. I think this will help you out.

This thread is in this forum, about a page back.

Determining Actual MOA When Using Burris Signature Zee Rings

Re: Burris PosAlign offset inserts

I use them in several rifles from 223 to 340 Weatherby. Burris Signature rings are very, very good and the inserts can be a huge help.

I wish that someone made good double dovetail bases for the Weatherby Mark V, and then I'd use them even more.
