    I need some help here, I purchased a Vortex Viper HS-T had I am short a few shims to get the zero stop to work properly. It looks like Vortex discontinued them for purchase, but they come with the scope when you purchase. My issue is I need like 4 more..........Is there any way to put them in that would not require more, or do I need to keep looking. I sent Vortex an email about this but have not heard back, any suggestions?

    You could cut some out of neoprene washers from the hardware store. Or get a base with more angle on it so you have more adjustment left to dial up and therefore use less shims. I would choose option B. What is your setup and how much adjustment up do you have left?

    CALL Vortex, tell them you need them. Be polite but insistent.

    I put together a Christensen Arms 300WSM with a 6-24 Viper HS-T, standard bases nothing fancy. I have plenty of adjustment left. This will be a hunting rifle, nothing fancy like banging steel at 1000. Called Vortex and they are sending me some shims to finish it off.
