Hello,

 

Burris told me that the offset shims will raise the impact from 5 to around 46". That didn't tell me a whole lot.

 

My question is can a .22 Lr be sighted in at 50 yards and still be set to 200 yards usng these shims? If so, which size? If this worked, than I could put knobs on my Leupold 3.5x10 and use that if they can get it to track correctly.  It would be a lot of trouble to change rings for squirrel hunting.

 

The SS wouldn't need shims, but 10X is too much power. Where is that SS variable anyhow?

Depends on what combination of "shims" you use, thin rear & thick front will raise it enough for a 204yd zero using your existing "clickage" of most scopes and a 50/50 split.

Sighting 50/200 is no problem if you keep in mind your base/ring setup, the closer to say a 80-121yd zero without using your elevation/windage tube adjustment the better off you will be. If you mount the scope and it takes most of your elevation/windage tube adjustment to zero it, then you will be (technical term) "screwed" and will have to "field guessavate" your shots.

Boneyfreak,

 

I would use a Leupold vari-x-III 40mm scope. I can get it sighted in at 100 yards with standard mounts. Lately I sight in at 85 yards. It's either Burris rings or SS. The Burris rings are probably ok.
