    Anyone using shims on their bases? I’m having a heck of a time raising the elevation on my M70.

    Burris Signature rings will allow you to raise a 1" up to 20 MOA, 30mm, 10 MOA.

    I have an old Husqvarna 1600 that I had to shim. It worked fine. But this
    is much better!

    Yes, I had an old 98k that I “sporterised” tapped for bases, bolt handle “adjusted” to clear the ocular bell on an old Kahles 4x.
    I obtained some shims from Brownells that gave me a near perfect set up. The scope had a non-centered reticle, it was as close to the center for both elevation and windage as possible.
