Re: Burris Signature Rings

What are the chances that if I went with -20/+20 that I wont be able to zero at 200yds?

Depends on the amount of adjustment in your scope, but really I can't think of any decent scope that you would have problems getting a 200 yard zero with those inserts.

Agreed.
I think you'll be fine.

Re: Burris Signature Rings

Well I went with the +20/-20 inserts on the front of my scope and the best I could do is 3" at 200yrds. I guess I am going to have to stick with the +10/-10 on the front and loose out on 15-17clicks. I could make it a 100yrd zero. Any other ideas?

Could you explain a bit further? 3" group at 200? 3" drop at 200?

How will -10/10 get you where you want any better than -20/20?

Generally if you're using turrets the object of the game is to initially have the crosshairs below your point of impact when sighting in. You then have more "down" clicks to get to longer range. You really don't want it in the middle of its adjustment range at 200 yards as now you've got half of the adjustment range "unused" sitting there above your zero. Right now my Sendero is zeroed at 200 yards using 0/0 inserts (came that way from previous owner - did not have to adjust the vertical on the scope more than a couple clicks). Later this year I'm going to swap them out in the front and drop the objective so that I gain some vertical adjustment for longer range.

Re: Burris Signature Rings

Sorry, I am shooting 3" high at 200yrds with +20/-20 inserts front and rear. I put +10/-10 inserts in the front and left the +20/-20 inserts in the rear ring. Now I have to click up 15-17 clicks from it bottomed out in order to zero at 200yrds.

You sure you put them in correctly?

If you went from -10 to -20 in front then you should have had to click more than 15-17 to bring it up to zero it if that was your previous setting, as it should have dropped the front of the scope down. Not to say you didn't, but I'd double check your installation. I've make the same mistake.
