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??

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

    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

    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.
