Tikka scope mounts

here is my problem (one of them at least): I have a 300 WSM in a Tikka and topped w/ a Nikon Monarch 5.5-16.5 x 44 AO scope. The scope only has 40 MOA and I would like to be able to shoot out to 1000. THe max range to sight in w/ this rig is only 820 yards ( and that is topping out the scope which I don't want to do).


I tried to shim the scope under the base on the Weaver style Tikka factory mounts using 3 slivers of aluminum pop can giving me approximatly 15 MOA lift. I started shooting at the range only to find that the shimms were slipping out after only a couple of shots.

Does anyone have a better Idea for the mounts, or a better way to shim a scope. I don't know where to find a good mount for the Tikka T3. Thanks in advance for your advice. Mark.

    Try looking here..http://www.kenfarrell.com/TIKKA-T3-1-20.html... if that doesn't work out try looking for Near Manufacturing. I hear they have good luck with oddball manufacturers. Not that Tikka is wierd just not really popular.

    I am not sure if this is what you need, you might contact the company to see if they can help you out.

    I tried the website, but I couldn't find mounts on it.

    I ended up purchasing Leupald bases for the T 3 and Buris Signiture rings. I put them on my rifle and the front Luepald/burris merrage was loose. I could easily twist the ring on the base. I proceeded to use a cut piece of Aluminum pop can as a washer to tighten up the base/ ring contact. Any better ideas anyone? Thanks, Mark

    It's not on their web site but they have them for the t3. Give them a call instead.
