I have a 300 Weatherby with a VX3 Leupold scope. I originally had a set of Leupold rings on it but I had to shim the back and in order to get the crosshairs on paper, I didn't like the whole shim idea because I believed it was affecting the accuracy, plus after banging off about 40 rounds the shim would start to slide out. So I recently purchased a set of one piece ring and Base tally scope rings. After installing the talley rings I took it to the range to find out, my elevation adjustment on scope was maxed out, and I was still shooting 3 1/2 feet high.
I'm looking for some help on a way to resolve this problem .
Should I take Dremal tool and Sand down the rear base? Or send my scope into leupold to get it adjusted somehow?
