Hi
I have a Burris scope with Burris signature rings. I can not get it zeroed at 100 yards still shots high what way do I need to shim the scope? Raise or lower the front?

THANKS FOR THE HELP

I'm pretty sure you would raise the front of the scope, that way you are matching the point of impact.

Try switching the scope rings front to back first

hoene72: I've been thru this many times & also use the Burris offset insert rings, to keep my elev & wind close to center. Anyway: always move the front of the scope in the opposite direction from the way you want to move bullet point-of-impact. As an example, the very long range shooters need the maximum amount of "up" adjustment, so many times they choose the tapered base mount(s) that is lower in the front, and higher in the rear. This is an "opposite" example of what you need.

SORRY MAN, YOU WOULD NEED TO LOWER THE FRONT OF THE SCOPE IN ORDER TO TO GAIN LONGER RANGE ADJUSTMENTS.

billmo: We must be posting at the same time/ just read your post after "doing" mine. I think he said his problem is his point-of-impact is high & he ran out of "down" adjustment. His problem is the opposite of the 1000 yd. shooters. Plz correct me if I'm wrong: it's happened before.

I might be wrong but I'm not sure that is what the OP is trying to do. I read it that he is maxed out of adjustment on the scope and and he is still shooting high. So his POA is the center bull but the POI is say 4" high(just an example) so I think the front of the scope has to come up. Unless I engaged the fingers before the brain?

Imagine looking through the scope at a target. your bullet impact is high. what does the cross hair need to do to be at the point of impact? raising the front of the scope would get you there. hope this clears up some of the confusion.
