    I have used the Burris Signature rings on everything from a .223 Rem heavy barrel up to a .300 Ultra Mag heavy barrel. I am quite pleased with the performance. No ring marks at all when changing scopes. No worries at all about the scope slipping in the rings under heavy reciol. These rings are rock solid.

    I started using Burris Signature rings a few years ago. Best invention yet as far as I'm concerned. I see people spend $100 or more on rings that will ruin scopes in a heartbeat. The Burris rings hold tight and do no leave nasty ring marks. I have them also on everything from 243s to a 300 Wby and a 300 Ultra Mag. I have never had to use the oddball inserts so I can't say that they work like advertised but never had a problem with the 0 ones. Sako Optilox have inserts also and they seem to work fine too. I wish more companies would use this method to protect your investment in good scopes.

    Make sure you degrease them very well, especially the threads on the screws and the threads in the rings.

    Agree, use then on everyting I can. Plus the off set inserts are great when using double dove tails mounts which I use alot to eliminate the windage screws on the rear mount. Ya can pic up .040 if needed.

    I guess I'm the black sheep here, because I don't use them any longer. I think they are great once you get them set. They also don't leave marks on the scope. The problem I had is that it typically took me much longer to mount the scope straight using those rings. Every time I placed the scope in the insert where I thought it was straight, as soon as I tightened them, the reticle would get canted. Then, to straighten it you have to completely remove the scope from the inserts and reposition, unlike standard rings where you can simply loosen the screws and gently turn the scope or slide it forward or back. It's not impossible, but just a PITA. Aside from that, they work very well once you get them where you want them.
