I already put a post in the Rings forum but there doesnt seem to be much traffic in there.  I thought maybe here more people might see it.  Does anyone have any expirience with Burris Sig series with dovetail front and rear adjustable windage?

I have them on several rifles. Like the fact you can add elevation. Had one shift riding in gun boot on four wheeler. Don't think it is as strong as there Xtreme Tactical rings.

Yeh they are excellent,
what other rings can your bore sight your rifle with without using your scope adjustments? they don't damage your scope in any way either,
many other reasons why to use them in their video http://www.burrisoptics.com/sigrings.html

You only need DD or weaver style bases

I have that setup on my 22-250.  I like having the windage adjustable rear.  It allows you to move the windage when sighting in without using any internal adjustment in the scope.  You also get adjustment from the signature rings.  Great setup in my opinion.

cidme, I answered your question in the rings section, I thought in great detail.  Did I miss some aspect of your question in my reply?

rifledude,
 
you did answer the question on the windage part thanks. but there are 3 stle of mounts offered for signature rings why choose one over the other? I am taking this gun to alaska  and there will be a very rugged 35 mile  4 wheeler trip to get to the final spot.  Would this make a difference? Is one more solid than the other? I just want to make the best choice the first time.
thanks

I've used them all.  The most rugged of the Burris mount designs using the Signature rings in my opinion would be the double dovetail bases & rings, but they don't have any windage adjustment.  Close behind those would be the Signature Zee rings with Weaver style bases, which also don't have the windage adjustment.  They might be about as strong as the double dovetail, I don't know, but they certainly are the most adaptable to a variety of tube lengths, as is the case with all Weaver / Picatinny style bases.  I think the windage style bases would be the least rugged, because the rear ring is held in place by small scalloped grooves engaging two screw heads.  However, unless you are extremely rough on your rifle, all decent quality rings from name brands will be solid enough.

Since you have used them all, wich do you prefer? And is the windage adjustment that crucial?  Can you do the same thing withthe ring shim pack?

also how does a picatinny base work?

Of the Burris bases, I prefer the double dovetail.  It is the cleanest looking, and I believe the strongest and most foolproof.  However, ring spacing isn't adjustable like it is with Weaver/Picatinny bases used with the Zee rings.  The Picatinny bases work like any Weaver style base.  They have slots cut along the length of the base.  The rings clamp on the base with a dovetail and there is a pin along the underside of the rings that engage the slots in the base to prevent movement.

The windage adjustment is a benefit to keeping the scope's reticle as centered as possible, but I don't think it's critical.  Most of my mounts don't have any windage adjustment, and I'm a big fan of Talley rings, for instance, which don't have it.  The shim inserts work with all Signature rings.  The connection type between the rings and bases have nothing to do with the inserts.  All Burris Signature rings share the same inserts, provided you're comparing rings of the same tube diameter (1" vs. 30mm).  Obviously, 30mm inserts won't fit in 1" rings, and vice-versa.

I missed this part of your questions somehow.  Yes, technically you can, but I've never found a need to use the shims for windage correction.
