windage adjustable bases ?

any suggestions as to the best windage adjustable bases available for rem. 700 with burris ext. tactical 6x24x50 ? after sighting in i don't have any "left" windage remaining. I have installed the +10 inserts both front and rear, but still lack any "left" windage, so want suggestions for adjustable rear base.

I am not aware of a windage adjustable base, however there is the leupold style front dovetail and rear windage base and rings. It has 2 large windage screws that hold the rear rings and allow minor windage adjustment. I had one of these windage screws break on a 7mmRemMag, so I don't use them anymore but there are alot of people who do.

I'm assuming (big word) that you're using Burris Signature rings?
If so, are your inserts being used to alter the scope left-to-right, up-and-down, or both? Would you mind explaning a bit more about your setup? Any pictures?

I've had to use a +/-20 insert with a +/-10 insert with a dual dovetail system to get it all lined up where I wanted. No windage adjustments available when using dual dovetails or some other bases, so you have to do it all with the inserts. And, you may need +/-20s both front and back.

yes, I'm using the +10 front and rear to adjust windage as far as it will go. The xtreme tactical is a 30mm body, so BURRIS does not make a +20 insert like hey do for the 1" scopes. In the process of making a set of inserts now.

Please don't take this wrong but did you get the inserts in right? only reason I ask is that when I got mine I put them on the wrong side the first time out. Later,

Kirk

Re: windage adjustable bases ?

I would look at what was jacked up on my action. You shouldn't need that much windage plus inserts and still not on target, that seems a little extreme but then I haven't ran into that before.
