Burris rings offset inserts, anyone use them?

Post by DavidABQ » Thu Apr 28, 2016 2:43 pm

Had anyone uses the Burris scope rings with the offset inserts to reach out to 100 meters?

Which insert did you use?

I and dodaddy use them and are happy with them. Beats using business cards. Not only does it give you more elevation, if you are too far left or right, you can overcome that. I recommend them.

Trial and error determines which insert to use. We also use rails with the 20 degree slope.

+ / - 20 works well. Usually centers scope at mid range of elevation.

20 deg is about 3 thickness of a beer can. It gets my 22 scope out to 200 meters and my HP out to 1500 yards.

How many beer thickness do you use for your standard 100 meter ram?
I probably should have ordered the full kit looking back.

One 'standard' beer can thickness is 0.007". :) Hope that helps.

3 beer can thickness works out to a vertical difference of 0.21".

If I use a distance of 6" between scope rings that gives me Ɵ=Tan-1 (0.021”/6”).

That gives me an angle of 12' 1.92".

Maybe I should have bought the +/- 10 instead of the +/- 20.

If I can get to the range this weekend we will see when +/-20 puts me.

What brand was that Steve? The good stuff or the cheep stuff.

Dave, I use the 3 because sometimes I like to try my luck at 200 M with my 22.

Never forget the venerable milk jug shim. Will not rust. Will not compress. Will not make a mark on the scope. Some have textured surfaces. Easy to cut with common household scissors. Varies from .017" to .022" in thickness. 1/2 gallon jugs are thinner than 1 gallon jugs and different sides of the same jug give slightly different thicknesses. This gives no cost precise shimming. Clean the cut shim with isopropyl alcohol to remove the milk residue. I think either Dan Healy or James Culpepper came up with this years ago.

The cheap stuff, Bud or Miller. If you use a Fosters can you will shoot the dirt in front of you. LOL

Burris posilign rings - good stuff. I have them on all my siplhouette rifles, air (PCP), 22's, and high power. I use +20 at the rear ring and always have enough adjustment for rams - works pretty well for all but testing always tells the tail. They're reliable - I've been using them for many years now with no trouble. I wouldn't hestitate to recommend them.
