    Burris Offset Ring Inserts

    Does anybody know if these offset inserts are made for 30mm scope tubes?

    I am seeing conflicting info on the MidwayUSA.com item listing.
    Desciption says not available for 30mm rings, tech specs says they come with inserts.

    Also, anybody have experience with Burris dovetail rings in std bases?
    Been reading that the dovetails only fit tight in Burris brand std bases.

    The only ones they list on Brownells are for 1" rings.

    Here's what they list for the tech specs - SPECS: Synthetic, black. For 1" rings only. Kit includes: .005, .010, .020 inserts. Gunsmith kit includes: 10 each .005", .010", .020" inserts (60 total pieces)

    As far as the dovetail rings / bases go, I've always been of the opinion that you should use the same brand bases and rings for the dovetail setups. Different companies will have different machining tolerances for their products and may not work as well as you want when mixing the base and ring manufacturers.

    Burris makes 30 mm inserts, but they are not offered in a kit like the 1" inserts. 30 mm rings include a set of +/- zero and +/- .10 inserts with each set of rings. I have had no problem using Burris dovetail rings with Burris/Redfield/Leupold bases. If you have an older base and are trying to use new rings, the base dovetail insert may be worn. I have had that problem with Redfield to Redfield. A little bit of gentle peening will usually cure the problem.
