I need to know for sure that my scope is parallel to the bore. I need to know that 2 clicks R windage are going a perfect 90° right.
Are you lapping the rings? Levelling the gun then the scope? Adding moa of elevation in base and rings?
Please don't take this as nitpicking your preferrence, but as I said hunting rifles and prevision shooters are the difference.
Just leveling of the rifle and squaring of the scope. I have yet to encounter a need to add MOA elevation. I have kept my freezer full of venison for the past 10 or so years without shooting over 200 yards.
I have yet to get into "prevision" shooting!
However I just joined a new club that has a 300 yard range, prior ranges I have used were 100 max.
I am not arguing against Burris products, I own Burris scopes and rings. Burris makes good stuff.
However, I am not going to rip the Leupold mounts off my rifles and throw them in the trash or sell them on Ebay just to buy new rings that won't do anything more for ME than the ones I have.
If the OP has Leupold rings on his rifle and wants to switch to another brand, then the OP can do that. But I don't see it as being a necessity because Leupold makes a great mounting system, but I agree one size does not fit all.
