Give Tony a break and do some leg work yourself so you don't wear out a good man. He's not a McDonalds drive thru answer service.

Thanks from PublicSafety400

I'm back with a follow up report. Midsouth Shooters gave me a full refund and had the replacement rings and bases delivered priority-pronto. With my scope back to mechanical zero, (thanks Tonyben) I got them mounted up and checked the bore sight alignment looking down the tube, Looks like I'll only be a couple MOA off at 25 yds. I took it back apart and reassembled with blue locktite and set all screws to mfr. recommended torque values. Now all I need is a day at the range. Thanks for all the help folks, I'm glad I took the time to post up here. I've mounted several scopes in my day and never had any problems, and the only real problem here was I had the wrong bases. Lesson learned today is to double check that 'expert' advice that we sometimes get, even when it comes from trusted sources. Thanks again.

Edit;
I'm still waiting on a reply from Burris as to how to re-zero my scope.......

Thanks from tonyben and Wasted ammo
