Re: Shim questions

Hello Tim

For light scopes, the plastic inserts are being used for the reason Skinny was asking about without going to extra expense.
I have had no problem with them and with Leupold scopes of 1" diameter tubes.

I like the Badger myself. Hard to beat those bad boys. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Hows the 338 working out??

Re: Shim questions

My tubes are the 30mm LR series. Does that make any difference?

Re: Shim questions

Burris Signature rings are the ones you want. They come in 30mm but you must buy the insert kit exra for the 1 inch. ($56 from Sinclair for 30mm)

Go to the Sinclair int catalog or website www.sinclairintl.com and look at the Lightforce (Bruce Baer design and sold to them) tapered base ($73.50) or the new Ken Farrell long range base ($42.50) 20MOA

Re: Shim questions

FWIW - When I hit up my gunsmith for the Burris solution, he indicated that their screws had a shearing problem. Using to hard of metal or something like that. Indicated he had quite a few guns in with Burris bases that needed fixed.
