Burris Signature Rings

I sent out my Zeiss Conquest to Zeiss to have them put target turrets on it a few months ago. I got it back and now want to mount it to my Savage 7mm. I have the Burris Signature Rings. How do I set up the Pos-Align Offsets? I want to be able to zero @200 and dial up as far as possible so I can sight it in and get some Kenton Turrets

Mount it, zero it, change inserts to allow as much adjustment as possible. Up in back/down in front to increase available elevation adjustment.

That's one way to do it.... After you zero at 200 yards with say using 0 inserts, count how much adjustment is left downwards. Let's say you have 22 MOA left by using a .020 insert and 0 insert you'd be in business. If you have 18 MOA left then use two sets; the 0.010 and the 0.005 for a total of 0.015 and you'd be smoking! Whatever combination you use, just use less than than the total amount available.
Remember to use the inserts in matching pairs; -0.010 goes together with +0.010 on one end and -0.005 and +0.005 at the other end.

You can use them at whatever end you choose, just keep the rules shown below.

Whatever combination you use, remember to keep them in matching sets and whatever goes towards the muzzle end the negative insert (-) goes at the bottom
and the positive one (+) goes on the top; and whatever set goes towards the bolt end, the positive(+) goes at the bottom and the negative (-) goes at the top.

I hope I didn't confuse you!

Re: Burris Signature Rings

Burris has a video about it on their site:

Scopes - rings by Burris Optics

If using a base with rear windage screws I usually try and use those to center the left/right of the scope and not use the rings to do that. With double dovetail rings you can use the rings to do both.

As noted, you can "add" MOA by bringing the front down or the back up a bit extra.

Re: Burris Signature Rings

Ok so I took my rifle out and sighted it in at 200yds. I have the -10 in the bottom front and +20 in the bottom rear. I still had to dial up about 15clicks from fully seated to get a 200yd zero. Should I leave it at that or get another set of +/-20 to put on the front to lower -10 more than I have now? How far should I be able to adjust out to with how I am set up now?

Re: Burris Signature Rings

You may have to go with -20/+20. That would not surprise me at all as I've used everything from -10/+20 to 0/0 to get a scope directly on at 200 yards. If you want adjustability as you mentioned in post #1 you'll probably have to make the swap.
