PostSubject: scope mounting   January 5th 2015, 7:29 am

Mounted my VX3 on the MR last night.  I have the DNZ mount which I like very much but it's a little off.  I had to click my scope's elevation off center 68 clicks to get it zeroed.  Is that too much?  Should I shim it to make it closer?  Or should I go with Burris Signature rings that have the inserts? I have a CDS on it and was wondering if having it that far out would weaken my scopes ability to hold zero if I had to use the elevation even more for the CDS?

thats quiete a bit, shimmings ok but have to be careful not to torque/bend scope tube... millet makes some windage adj. rings that work really well Ive used them on a bunch of guns..the Burris rings would work great also.

Tony if you had that scope on another rifle, that much adjustment is usually common when you put it on a DNZ mount. Leave it on there you will not have a problem with it unless you run out of adjustment. Believe me I deal with that just about everyday when we switch scope from one rifle to another and use the DNZ, and yes it will hold zero with no problem.

Thanks, Carlos.  I'll do some shooting tonight with it and see how she does.
