I've got a new 1712 that I'm setting up for smallbore silhouette. I've got a Leupold 6.5-20X40 EFR scope for it (which I've used successfully on other silhouette guns), and Weaver 4X4 scope rings. Since on my other two smallbore silhouette rifles (Anschutz 64 MSR and CZ452) I've had to shim in order to have enough elevation adjustment, I shimmed the rear ring with a 0.010 shim. However, I still ran out of elevation adjustment at 100 meters. In others experience, did I use too thin of a shim, or does this sound odd?

Thanks,

John

I've used BKL mounts on my other guns as well, but in this case I wanted to use Weaver bases/rings. I suspect the difference between this gun and my others is the choice of bases.

FYI...when I set up my 64MSR with BKL rings and ran out of elevation, I called Leupold. They told me it is not uncommon to have to shim a 22 with a target-style scope to get proper elevation for 100 meters. Apparently no one else here has run into the problem, though.
