shimming scope base?
i recently bought a 10x42m super sniper scope got it mounted and tuned in for 100 yards but the problem i ran into was it was 27" low and 1' to the right, the widage is fine i still have a bunch of windage adjustment left even out to 1000 yards which i am soon to start trying out, but i lost a lot of my elevation
the rifle is a savage 110 tactical 300 win mag, the rings are the burris tactical rings and bases to match 2 piece,can i just shim under the base to get some of this back, or will this damage the scope being out of line,and do i shim the back base up to raise the bullet impact up so i can dial the elevation back down? oh! and hello to everyone on here, i am new to this site so please excuse my ignorance.
