Scope mounting question.

Mounted the VXII on the Ruger 10/22 a couple of weeks ago and finally got around to taking it out to zero it yesterday.

The VXII replaced the Bushnell as I just plain didnt like the Bushnell.

When I originally sighted the Bushnell in I had to shim the rear scope ring as I ran out of height adj when I sighted it in.

So, I mount the VXII, and the first shot at 40yds is about 3' low. Crank the scope up and fired a shot....still low. Ended up running out of adj with the VXII so it looks like I have the same problem and will have to shim this one.

Here is a pic of the 10/22 with the Bushnell...

My question is.....Could there be something wrong with the rings or bases or is it normal with the setup shown on the rifle.?

Just wondering............

    Have you tried swiyching the rings around,front to rear?
    Might be one is slightly taller than the other one.

    Swapped the rings/bases around when I sighted in the Bushnell and it didnt make any difference. Forgot to take my screwdrivers yesterday.......

    Come to think of it, when I bought the 10/22 it came fitted with the mounting(base) for the scope rings and I didnt bother swapping it out for the one that I bought along with the rings. Might take the factory mount off and see if that makes any difference........

    Yep. You might pop the stock off, pop the barrel off, put it back on. Make sure there's no crud in there.
