Need a math check

I recently bought a set of burris signature rings and an offset kit. I am looking to add 15 moa to my up adjustment. I put a +.005 in the bottom of the front ring and a 0 in the top of the front. In the rear I have a +.020 on the bottom and a 0 on the top. Originally I thought this would work but I've been thinking about it so much I've confussed myself.(easily done) Any help or reassurance would be appreciated. Thanks

STOP!!!!!!!!

The rings are in pairs...the +20 and the -20 stay together. To add 15 MOA, in the front (muzzle end), put the -10 on the bottom and the +10 on the top. In the back put the +5 on the bottom and the -5 on the top.

Lee, Thanks again. I don't know how I missed the "use them in sets" part of the instructions but I did. Took them apart and put them together per your advice (the right way) everything just seemed to fall into place. Appreciate the help.

Re: Need a math check

I'm just getting into this long range business myself and I've not been able to help many folks out here, so I'm glad I could help you out. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Those Burris Signature rings are really fantastic. I've got at least 4 sets of them.
