Guys,
I'm in a bind and looking for a little help. I picked up a 45X Leupold scope over the winter, and when I put it on my 40X a few weeks ago, I could not adjust the point of aim low enough at 35 yards(indoors). The closest I could get was a full row off(aim at a bull, hit the one below it). The scope came with high Millet windage adj. rings, and I was able to get the POI where it needed to be by putting a piece of thin cardboard under the rear mount. Fine for practice, but I don't want to shoot it in a match like that!

I ordered a set of medium Leupold PRW rings from an outfit on Ebay last week, and expected to find them on my doorstep...well, every day this week. When they weren't here today, I called the outfit a few minutes ago. They didn't even have the rings in stock, and had to order them from Luepold. They said they "should" ship to me on Monday. I'm headed South early Thur. morning, so I'm not real confident I'll see them in time. Between living in the middle of nowhere and being swamped at work trying to tie up loose ends before the trip, I'm not going to be able to find any around here.

Does anybody going to the Crawfish have a spare set of 30mm rings for Weaver bases I can borrow or buy? It's not a huge deal if I can't find some(I'll just put the old T-36 back on), but I was REALLY looking forward to trying out the new scope next weekend! If anyone can help me out I'd sure appreciate it!
My e-mail address is TKBanks98@aol.com or 518-796-0768.
Thanks,
Todd Banks

Thanks Cliff, Ron and Doug,
I had to make an unexpected trip to a jobsite today, and found a cheap pair of BKL's at a gun shop not too far out of my way. They'll do till the Leupold rings I bought on Ebay get here.
Thanks again,
Todd
P.S. I can almost taste the Crawfish and shrimp...it's 30 degrees outside, and we got 4" of snow yesterday:eek:
