How many MOA w/Burris Signature inserts?

I did a search but couldn't find what I was looking for. And, due to differences in ring spacing, etc., I know there is not an EXACT answer, but about how much elevation in MOA will I gain using a + 20/-20 ring insert in the Burris Signature (1") Rings?

    If you use a +20 /-20 set in just one ring and a set of zeros in the other you'll pick up approx. 20 moa . If you use a +20/-20 set in both rings you'll pick up approx. 40 moa.

    It's been my experiance with five different sets of rings that you usually wind up with a little less since the inserts are in thousandths not true moa.

    If the rings are 5" apart then .015 will be 10 moa.

    To find the exact MOA you will have you need to do the following:

    Front insert used + Rear insert used x 3600 divided by the ring spacing in inches will give you the actual elevation adjustment in inches at 100 yards.

    The added tech tip might show it better with pictures:
