Tried to zero the Scope today at 100meters and ran out of adjustment in elevation, Impact a foot low with elevation maxed out.. Not sure how to adress this issue this scope has very little adjustment compared to other scopes. Maybe I will switch scope with my other Rifle it has a Leupold VXR 2-7x33 that scope has 4times more elevation adjustment. So I need new rings for 30mm, perhaps leupold qrw2 low would work.
it most certainly looks good .... looking forward to following your progress

EDIT:
I only tried those old weaver topmount, I found medium QRW2 rings, they are the same height as I already Have with these weaver rings giving clearance to have the buckhorn ready when taking off the scope aiming down the rail Hits bullseye at 25m. If everything works out I get them by mail tomorrow. Really hope it solve the adjustmentissue, but I wanted Leupold QRW rings anyway.

Got my Leupold qrw2 rings today, had to settle with medium height that was in stock. I wanted low rings, if this doesnt work I have abandon this scope and use something else with better adjustmentrange. Will know in the morning, really want this to work.

Well a Day att the range, new rings improved but Still shooting 4inches low att 100meters with Scope att highest setting so I am giving Up on this Scope. My homecast NOE 265gr rnfp was best. 240gr fiocchi and hornady xtp went event lower. Its only 28moa adjustment in this scope so im returning it and Will Search for another Scope. I have a VXR 2-7x33 but thats a 30mm tube then I need new rings aswell.... Not sure what to do, anyway it was a beautiful Day at the range, now I need to reload some rounds aswell.

How about a shim in the front ring. Some people cut up an aluminum beverage can, and make a shim out of that.
