So I went to the range to test some loads, nevertheless, my last loads started to creep way down the target sheet at 100yd. At first I thought, well it doesnt like this load too much, then I thought well it actually cant stand this load.. , anyway after a while I was missing the target altogether. Turns out my scope's front dovetail extended ring had separated from itself (the ring portion that was bonded to the base/dovetail portion simply gave out, and I was only using 49 grains).

My comment/question is, is it fixable (epoxy, etc) or should I simply buy new front ring? I could swear that these were welded pieces but guess not, maybe I won't buy these rings again. What is anybody's thoughts on this?

Don't waste your time on the Burris extended front dovetail.  I had this exact problem with the same front ring twice.  I have read close to 20 posts from others with this simular problem.  I finally replaced mine with simular leupold rings, problem solved.

thanks for the feedback, I will try em.  The Burris I will see if I can get someone to weld em if they won't deform. Other then this little 'tic' i like the rings, but not gonna send em bak to be replaced by another set of rings that will just fail again. Maybe I need a custom front ring, cuz cant seem to find an extended front ring other then Burris or Leupld, or Redding.
thanks.
