Burris Signature Zee Rings - 10 MOA or 20 MOA?

I am preparing to mount a new Sightron scope to my Ken Farrel base using the high burris signature zee rings. Will I gain 10 MOA or 20 MOA using the included offset ring inserts? I plan to use the +10 insert on the bottom of the rear ring and the other +10 insert in the top of the forward ring. Thanks for your help.

Re: Burris Signature Zee Rings - 10 MOA or 20 MOA?

The inserts are designed to be used in sets. If you put a +10 in the bottom rear you'll need a -10 in the top rear, that and zeros in the front will get you about 10 moa.

Add a +10 in the top front and -10 in the bottom front will get you an additional 10 moa for a total of 20 moa.

Now keep in mind the inserts are in thousandths not MOA so depending on rings spacing the actual amount may vary a bit but it will generally be within a couple of moa. Most of mine have come up a little short, but not enough to matter.

Correct. Sometimes you don't get two sets of +- 10 inserts so you will need to buy the extra kit if you need the 20MOA
