I have an issue while mounting my scope. Here's the issue.
I have a Leupold QR base and high (.900) rings. I am mounting a Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x44 scope.
Mount the base on with screws loctited in (no issues).
I then mount the rings to the base and secure them with the levers (good to go).
I place the scope in bottom ring halves put tops on and secure the to 28" pounds after making sure crosshairs are close to perfectly vertical an/or plumb.
There is about 1/4" gap between the bottom of the objective bell and the top radius of the barrel. Way more than I care for (like to keep it as minimal as possible.
I get the boresighter in and start adjusting. I have to come up the only problem is I can't come up enough because the turret tops out.
So the question of the day is will going with lower rings (say mediums at .77" or low .65") give me a gain in turret up movement?
Thanks in advance Ladies and Gentlemen.
