Re: Shimming rear base
Txhunter, that's about all I got with a .020" shim. I think I did a little figuring like that back then to get that .020" also. Depending on where the crosshair is situated in the tube (I don't know) and where it is placed relative to the rear base being shimmed would be the exact length to figure it on , true? Or is it the occular to the crosshair distance that is correct?
I agree the two piece base is puttin the tweek on your tube as it did mine. The Leopolt 3.5-10x40 has NO evidence of the misalinement though, it looked and felt new when I took it off to put it in the Burris rings with inserts.
It shocked me too because I had the screws as tight as I could possibly get them. Almost had to drill them out.
The onepiece is the way to go or the Burris set on a two piece.
