    Burris ring off-set insert help.

    Do you put the +0.20 in the front ring on the bottom half and the -0.20 in the back on the bottom half or the other way round? I'm confused

    And you WON'T get 20 MOA like they say.
    All depends on rings spacing etc - and I'd be damned if you could get 20 MOA out of mine in anyway let alone actually mounting a scope

    Yep got that but something is better than nothing. Plus I don't think they make rails for Husquvana model 1600's...

    Thanks.

    Here's a link to a maths formula to work out how much gain you will get from the inserts.

    http://bulletin.accurateshooter.com/...ation-changes/

    It looks like the distance the rings are apart is the key. For my 94mm ring to ring distance, I should get very lose to 40moa using .020 front and back.

    Question for the guys who are using these. Do you find that the inserts hold the scope securely, any issues ?
