Currently have a Leupold one piece but it's not offering enough eye relief with my burris.
After looking at the weaver bases I think that's what I need but can't seem to find what I need at Brownells.
Any suggestions what other bases/ rings combo?

Find a Tasco one-piece base and use whatever brand of Weaver-style rings you prefer.

You can move the scope back about 1/2" with extension rings. Make sure it is for the dovetail ring because they come both ways.

Here's a set on ebay. ebay link

I just put this 3.5x10 on a 243 with the Burris Signature Zee rings and Weaver bases a few minutes ago.

Thanks for the pics. I have a .308 I'm scoping and have a few options with scopes.

If there isn’t enough scope adjustment, Burris makes offset inserts to correct it, used them on one 99.

This is what I was dealing with.... but not anymore. Took it all off and ordered the weaver bases.
