Is the rear ring base salvagable?
When "upgrading" to the Burris Sig rings for a bigger kicker than the 300 WSM
, I had to degrease all ring parts including the inserts. Then upon recommendations of people here, I torqued the all the screws down to just before twist off or until I was embarrassed with the pressure I was using.
The star wrench was left with pretty much a permanent full turn. I now looks like its threaded.
This is said to help one become more comfortable ring screw torque requirements.
Glad you found it. I hear that .001" on the ring is 1" @ 100yds. Kind of a rule of thumb, I guess.
