So I bought the Hawke Vantage 2-7 x 32 AO scope as suggested in another thread.
It seems like a nice scope and it is so much clearer than anything I own at 8 meters and less
Problem just is, the scope is much shorter than I thought. So now the rear part of the scope is touching the action of my rifle when I want to mount it on my low weaver rings. But we are not talking much, so I think about shimming it rather than using it with high mounts.
I''ll be shimming front and back, so the scopes tube should not bend.
Question is, how much can I shim before it can become an issue? What material do you use to shim your scopes?
