    Need some advice on scope setting. I bought a set  of Burris Signature zee rings. It came with 10+ AND 10- as well as a set of zero shims. Trying to set this scope up correctly one time. I installed them on a Vulcan .22 using a BSA 4X14-X44 FFL scope. Question is this. If I set scope up with zero inserts I am 10″ low at 20 yards. If I put the 10+ and 10- in I can get it within 4″ shooting low. That takes a full turn of the turrent to get it up to poa at only 20 yards. I want to use all of my scope settings for distance, I do not want to have to use much vertical adjustment just to get rifle to zero at pop. If I understand this correctly, that means I am off about a half miles at 100 yards. (at least 50 inches)  I have also seen the FX No LIMIT rings that Ted likes so much. Does this make sense, meaning am I going in the right direction. Thanks for any input you have!

    I have the fx no limit scope mounts on my wildcat. Once I optically center the scope, get the cross hairs dead center, and mount it, then I zero it at 50 yards by using just the mounts, lifting the rear mount up slightly ( just the width of 1 or 2 playing cards) and then tighten the mounts. This allows me to be zeroed at 50 without even using my vertical turret yet. Now there is plenty of turret adjustment to get me out to 125 yards +.

    dunk50  does your scope have a 1″ tube? The reason I ask is you can buy pos-align insert kit for it with -/+ insert pairs in 5, 10 and 20. Now for example a -/+ 10 insert pair will change impact 10″ at 100 yards. It will at 20 yards only move the group 1/5th that amount or 2″ at 20 yards. Since you are hitting 10″ low at 20 yards that would translate to 50″ low at 100 yards. The best you can do is get two sets of -/+ 20 inserts to move your group. That would translate bringing your group down 40″ at 100 yards or 8″ at 20 yards. Now if you used the -/+ 10’s you have and use the -/+20’s in the kit you will move the group down 30″ at 100 yards or 6″ down at 20 yard. That would be within 4″ low you want. I believe if you have a 30mm tube you can only get the inserts in -/+ 20 pairs. I am not sure if you can buy individual pairs of inserts. Bill PS remember you must point the scope down to raise the point of impact up. In other words place the + inserts in  the bottom half of the rear ring with the plus on top. Do the opposite positioning with the inserts in the front ring.

    Bill, I should have mentioned that I have a 30 mm tube and that I am told now that Burris does not make any 20’s or 30’s for the 30 mm. They make plenty for the 1″ BUT!!

    Can’t say enough good things about the FX No Limits mounts, make life so easy when setting up a scope, have them on two rifles and no dramas.

    10″ low at 20 yards sounds like there might be some other underlying issue to me.
