Eye relief

I have a Remington 700 in 270. I mounted a Bushnell Banner 4 - 12. I cannot move the scope any closer to the butt of the gun to get a good sight picture in the scope. Are there other rings I should try or do I just need to get used to this set-up? I find myself moving my head toward the scope which creates an uncomfortable shooting position.20161106_094244_1478446438139.jpg

They do make an extended front ring that would allow the scope to move further to the rear. Probably have to buy both the front and the rear rings though. I have learned with Rem. 700s to always buy reversible front and rear bases as that is another way to gain scope adjustment range.

Bushnell is noted for poor eye relief. That's why they have better FOV than Leupold. And Leupold has better eye relief than Bushnell. It's all a trade off.

The 2nd link doesn't work. I tried a tactical mount but I found that a 2 piece mount works easier for loading and unloading. Thanks.

Do you know who makes that extended ring set? Thanks.

Leupold makes the extended front ring. Leupold also makes the reversible front and rear bases.

They're not Talley and they're not DNZ. I'm not sure what they are. I'd probably go with a rail... or a different optic.

I had this problem with my Savage...l went with a one piece base, and ground down the base area over the action.
