Re: Need help shimming scope bases
The shims I got from Leupold were .010 inch thick. As I have one piece bases, I didn't need to re-lap the rings as both changed angle together. However, my guess is that because the back ring is changing angle while the front ring isn't that there would be some mis-alignment of the rings.
But, as I haven't ever used a two piece base set up, I don't know if the change in angle is enough to bugger up the scope. I imagine at the very least, it will show marks on the scope from where the top front and rear lower bite into the scope a bit harder.
