I have a recently finished customized K98 Mauser. In the distant past I took it to a less than profficient "gun smith" for milling & drilling for scope mounts. Life happened and it got shelved.
Recently finished it finally, but old work by other guy is not in proper alignment. New "Smith" redrilled and added picattinny rail with caveat that I may still have issues. Well, I do.
Still 2 inches low and 8 left at 25 yrds!
Leupold vx 1 3-9 x40 and Weaver rings.
 
What next?
I'm told Leupold has less adjustment range than some scopes. Anyone know what scopes in same price category would have more adjustment avail ?
Or..., is there a better solution?
 
Thanks

  WELCOME to OT,KFF.
 
 
Shop more Burris products The revolutionary Signature design produces consistent accuracy, tremendous gripping power and stress-free mounting. These steel rings include a pivoting synthetic insert that increases the scope-to-ring mounting surface while protecting the scope finish. Additional Pos-Align Offset Inserts can be purchased (sold separately) to correct any misalignment of receiver holes or rings or even to provide additional windage and elevation adjustment.

CHOOSING RINGS: Ring height is determined by measuring the outside objective (bell) diameter on your scope. If you aren't sure which rings will suit your needs, please refer to the Ring Height Application Chart.

Technical Information: Burris Signature Zee Rings

Material: Steel

Style: Weaver

Ring Diameter: 1"

Ring Height: .270" (measured from base of ring to bottom of scope tube)

Notes:
  • Signature rings have synthetic pivoting inserts which increase scope to ring surface area, create consistent accuracy, give more gripping power and enable scratch free and stress free mounting.
  • Mounting hardware included.

    Offset Insert Option:
  • Signature rings may be used with Burris Pos-Align offset inserts (sold separately). These replace the standard inserts that are supplied with Signature rings and are used to move the scope tube within the ring itself rather than using the scope's windage and elevation adjustments alone.
  • Offset inserts are available in .005", .010" and .020" offset distances.
  • Offset inserts have the center opening offset by the amount of distance shown in the description. For example, .005" offset inserts will move the scope tube .005" toward the thinner of the two inserts. The inserts can be used to move the scope tube in the front ring, the rear ring or both rings. The inserts may also be used in any combination as long as the matched halves stay together. A set of .005" inserts may be used in the front ring and .010" inserts in the rear or whatever combination is needed.
  • If the inserts are used to move the front of the scope tube to the right, the point of impact at 100 yards will move to the left approximately 5 inches. If the scope tube is moved in the rear ring to the right, the point of impact will move to the right.
  • Inserts can be used to move the scope tube in any direction needed for windage and/or elevation.

    300S&W,
    That is good stuff!
    I figured I could count on this site for good info.
    I think that will solve my issues and let me use the scope I intended to use on this project.
     
    thanks a bunch.
