Re: No big surprise - Burris Signatures slipping on 338 LM

I'll tell you where I'm not getting them - Midway - the folks who won't ship bullets to Kaliforna.

Burris 30mm Xtreme Tactical Picatinny-Style Rings

They were supposed to be out now - midway has changed expected date to July this year. I'm sure someone besides Midway will carry them.

I'll tell them you and I both want this in a Sig version. They have been very responsive to my emails.

Re: Check SWFA for those Burris tactical rings

b1g b0re I looked on SWFA today and saw them and I guess they are available because they didn't say unavailble however they did say photo not available.

Re: No big surprise - Burris Signatures slipping on 338 LM

Here's a trick i learned from a buddy that custom builds 50BMG rifles from the ground up. Use a dab of nail polish on the bottom of the rings. Let the polish get a bit tacky before setting the scope in the rings. This guy knows his stuff, i've been using this trick with all of my magnum rifles and it works.

If you ever want to take the scope off that particular rifle, the polish comes right off the scope or bottom half of the rings. It leaves no mark.

Hard to beat clear fingernail polish and is easy to wipe off with acetone or MEK if taken out of rings to remount.
