I'm trying to drop a Doc 8x56 30mm onto a .270 X bolt S/S.
The problem is that even with the glass pulled right back (to where the front mount is within 1mm of the bell objective) I'm getting 5" of eye relief. (I've a short bull neck).
I need to adjust the glass back at least 1.5" to give me a comfortable shooting position and an eye relief of around 3.5".
I know I can get extender mounts but this only gives 1". I don't particularly want to cut a bit off the stock heel.
Anyone else had similar problems with this set up and how did you get a result ?
