MY 6 is sick!!
I JUST did a great shot on a 450 yard antelope, smashed him.
carried the gun the rest of the day, put it in to the case and it road home in the back seat.
Got home unzipped the case and lifted the gun out and the scope
almost fell in to my hand.Shocked
 
There windage adjustable rings, if you remember the Mauser action I used to build the rifle had scope base holes drilled off by over an 1/8 .
I ended up having to drill blank bases with the holes off center, and used grand slam windage rings.
This time I'll try to get the scope moved over far enough to use Burris windage ring with plastic inserts.
 
BUT I have to get it up and sighted in before deer season starts, less then two week .OuchConfused

Why not just replace windage ring, it's not likely to get 2nd bad one. You could leave ring itself, on scope and just swap out the crossbolt and keyed pieces. You might even find the clamp pieces, in parts bin.

They have worked for more then 3 years , I don't think they where "BAD"
They just broke, from stress maybe???
I had them first before I drilled my own bases.
I may not NEED that much movement to get lined up.
The Burris use concentric inserts to move the scope and don't stress the tube or mounts/rings . A better answer I think, I have some I'll try .

If you already have Burris rings with inserts, that's the way to go. I've used them before, instead of inclined base, they work well.

Cyrus just had a similar problem. He used the 20 minute (I think) burris rings and turned them a quarter turn. As far as I know it solved his problem of crooked screw holes.

Got a brake , well the mud dried up a little.
 The wind is about 30mph now and was around 20 when I went out this morning.
I used a dowel to line the scope to the barrel then a stick on bore slighter to get in the ball park, I also looked down the bore and aligned the cross hairs that way some too...
All said I was close.
I put a target out at 100 yards , it would blow away if I went any farther out.
I was sitting on my coyote belt pad with the Bipods on leaned up against a fence post with my elbow propped up with my knee.
Fairly steady for the wind. The wind was almost in to my face but a little to the left cross, as good as I could hope for in a hurricane.
( not quite but a lot of wind to be sighting in )
I was JUST off the paper to the left and 5" high with the first two shots. A total of 6 shots had me almost where I wanted to be.
With not being able to get paper out at 200 yards I was "shooting" for an inch and one half high at 100, with my 80 gr 6mm tts Barnes at 3600 fps, That should put me someplace from dead on to 1/2 high at 200 yards.
One last adjustment and I was there.
 
I put 2 almost in the same hole, one more click...
I put two side by side and called it good , till I can get it on 200 and 400 yards, but if I can't before deer season I think I'll be OK .?.?.?
