I have a Burris Signature 6X-24X scope.  The scope has been on three different rifles with 3 different sets of rings.  On all three rifles, the point of impact is 3" below and 1/2" to the left of center at 100 yards with the elevation and windage adjusted to the extremes.  I have sent this scope back to Burris twice and am being told to use Signature rigns with Pos-Align (read: offset) inserts in the rings.  Both Burris and I have tested this scope on V-blocks and the rectile is concentric to the tube. 
What would cause this issue?  Is the use of offset base or rings an appropriate solution?  It doesn't seem right to me that a scope meets factory specifications yet requires offset mounting.
 
This is going on a Remington 700 SPS chambered in .223 Remington with a Badger Ordnance base.

If you're spun the scope in a v-block without the center of the crosshairs shifting off target then it seems to me like it's unlikely to be the scope but you do have to see if the point of aim is shifting not that the crosshairs are concentric to the tube. If it were just one rifle the answer could easily be that the receiver's mounting holes were drilled out of alignment, that really isn't all that uncommon which is why Burris sells their Signature rings. But with three different rifles I have to ask if you're reusing the same base?

BTW I'm a big fan of Burris Signature rings. I'm less a fan of Burris' never their fault customer service.

I have a Burris 6-24X44 Signature that has been a source of frustration and aggravation for years. Right now it is on a heavy Rem 700, .243 with Burris signature rings and it works well for range use. This is my wife's rifle and she has a soft and friendly touch with mechanical devices. My prior use on a .280 Rem was frustrating because it defied all efforts to get a zero with it. Mounting it on a Ruger .243 with Ruger rings resulted in a situation where I could not get a 100 yd zero because I could not lower the point of impact. This is a big heavy scope and I think it would do its best on light recoiling rifles. 
 
I really don't trust it except for range use. An inspection by another showed that all the nitrogen had bled off and there was junk (debris) inside the scope. Burris fixed this and returned the scope to me in about 3 weeks.
 
I too am a fan of Burris signature rings but I really suspect some evil gremlins are alive and well inside this scope.

Thanks for the informatin.  To answer Sholling's question, this scope has been tested on three different platforms with differenct rings and bases.  The only common denominator has been the scope.
 
Having owned Burris products since I was old enough to purchase my first big game rifle, I've not had any problems until this one.  That being said, this is the first high-magnification optic that I have purchase (all the others were 3-9). 

I am going to see if the point of impact changes with magnification.  Has anyone had this problem with Burris scopes?
