This video explains the importance of using as little adjustments as possible to sight your scope in, it explains the many variable involved in why your bore and scope could be misaligned.  Very good computer animated illustrations make it easy to understand.

 The link doesn't work for me,  all that comes up is a screen full of encoded gibberish of some sort.

I guess I'll just have to take your word for it, Chris......
   ( I think my computer is missing whatever it needs to run that link.)
 I love the Signature ring system, and I really think you would do well to really promote it as an ideal way to solve the many mounting and zeroing problems we see on this site.
Two things need to be addressed by Burris, though. The first is the absence of offset insert sets for 30mm. tubes, and the second is the clumsy manner in which the" ZEE" rings, (Weaver/ Picatinny style), fit Weaver bases. The crossbolts must be removed completely, and the rings slid lengthwise off the bases, instead of tipping them off sideways after loosening the clamping device, as are most other Weaver-type rings. This is a much to be preferred method.

I find taking a small round mirror and placing it over the objective scope end and centering the reticle.........than using whatever inserts are necessary to get the scope as close to zero as possible without cranking on the w&e adjustments is a very good way to mount your optics. Centered reticles work the best and having your adjustment range for any windage or elevation needed is very nice. Having a scope tube without the customary "ring marks" really enhances resale value also. I just wish they would market screws with torx or hex heads rather than screwdriver slots that are just begging to get messed up from day one.

If your popup stoper is turned on you may have to hold down the control button while you try to download quicktime, it takes a couple of minutes to download.

Great video,
  I wonder if this will hold up to a S&W 500's recoil?

There is my gun, I have 3 Warne mounts on it and I am 20 inches off at 50 yards, ouch!

Hey Chris,
 
Great video thanks! 
 
I ended up ordering Talley light weight ring/mounts earlier today per CF2's recommendation. 
 
After viewing video, I have to ask if the Bushnell Elite 4200 2.5-10X40mm
scopes, new out of da box have their W&E adjustments centered.  It seems logical for all scopes to be delivered that way.  But who uses logic anymore?
 
Also, what grade Loctite should i use on the screws? 222, 262 or something else???
and should I still put small amount of Loctite on mating surface between mount and rail?
 
Thanks in advance.
 
Bud

Becarefull with the Loctite (which is an expoxy adhesive) it really can screw things up, especilly if you think your going to back the screw out to change something in the optics. The loctite will leave a crusty residue on the female part of the screws (tapped hole) which over time will make the screws much harder to put in and take out. I would never put lockite on the gun surfaces, first on plan gun metal it won't stick, second it may take the finish off (for rifles that are coated).
  In cars it does not make a huge difference because the tolerances in large screws and bolts (3 mm, to 10mm bolts) and this allow for an amount of gunk build up.
  If you can not develop enough pressure with the mounts alone then you have to buy different mounts.
   As well, loctite is not designed to hold up to repeat firing. From my mechanical engineering days we say the brittle expoxy will develop microfractures after repeat cycles about 500 to 1000, and on heaver loads even quicker.
 
Here my 500 rig, lots of mounts, no loctite.

Most importantly What gun were you mounting the scope on again?



Bud
Savage 110FP .270Win,  <- great gun
 8mm Mauser,   <- I love my Mauser 60 years old shoots like a winner
Hawkens 50 CAL BP,     <- I love my 50 , Never shot a Hawken
Remington Scopemaster 22LR,  Nice
 Browning Belgium 22LR    < - don't know this one, got a buckmark love it.
semi-auto Berretta & S&W 9mms  <- solid

Bud,
 
Yes the Elite scopes do come from the factory with the erector tube centered.
 
We recommend Loctite 222MS, if you have to have it.  We don't apply any between mating surfaces unless the customer request it as it is not necessary for most applications.

SWEET CANNON you got there! Bear hunter?  or AirplanesWink?

My Savage 110FP Long Action in 270 Win.
 
Browning Belgium 22LR    < - don't know this one, got a buckmark love it.
The Browning is a real beauty and my favorite.  She's a match grade semi-auto.
Bolts on the bottom and she loads in thru side of stock.  I used to see the cheaper version in all the carnival shooting galleries when I was young.  This one is a break-down, pull bolt half back, flip switch 1/4 turn and barrell & forestock come away.  High gloss blued with exotic french polished stock, 24K gold tipped sites and sweet 3lb trigger.  Surprisingly accurate for such a short rifle and never jambs.  The only draw back is, with the bottom bolt if you wear log sleaves you'll get hot brass down them.Shocked

Ok back to your gun,

http://www.talleyrings.com/lightweight.php
  nice gun, I have a Winchester model 70 chambered 270, and i have weaver mounts on there with a Leupold scope. The scope stayed on very nicely.
    I would definitely try it without loctite, the Talley rings are much better than my weaver mounts & rings, everything should hold together very well, torque it down well and you should do very well. Cool

Thanks Chris1,
 
      I do indeed have some 222MS.  I'll use it sparingly.  I already noticed that the rear mount screw-holes are drilled thru on my Savage.  I'll invert the entire rifle while mounting the Talley's and let it sit that away overnight to dry.  Don't need Loctite all over the internals!  At work we usually put a drop of loctite in a weight boat then dip the tip of screw into it. 1/16" at most as it wicks up pretty good.
 
thanks again
 
By the way...need any Dewalt cordless powertools?

Ya I am in south Florida, Go gator & Dolphins
  Pembroke Pines, but I am back and forth between Indiana and Upstate New York.
Hope it all works out for you.
Do you have a picture of the Browning Belgium 22LR ?
 I just bought a buckmark rifle still waiting for it to come in, can't wait to shoot it, it should be great for small game.

This is why I just changed the mounts and rings on my Cooper to Talley Rings and bases.  When installed the amount of adjustment needed on the scope is minimal.
