Thanks, that may be the only option. I agree higher mount would make the problem worse.

Burris offers Pos-Align offset inserts for their Signature rings that allow a gun to be sighted in when the scope runs out of windage or elevation adjustment. The offset insert kit comes with 3 different size inserts and clear directions on how to move POI using the inserts. They are designed to change POI and securely hold a scope. I think they will work well on your 460, but I've only used them with 44 mag and 7-08 handguns.

Also, if you raise the reticle with a higher mount, POI will go lower.

HSM Bear Load 454 Casull 325 Wide Flat Nose Gas Check 1330 fps
Federal Fusion:460 S&W 260 gr soft point 1600 fps
Velocity data is from manufacturer's web sites.

Gonna push him to Burris Pos-Align offset inserts for their Signature rings
Thanks all again.

Finally got the Signature rings installed with the offset inserts. Shooting session soon but I found it strange the rings had a recoil lug along the bottom that was wider than the groove in the S&W XVR rail. We simply filed the Aluminum until is fit and pushed them forward in the groove before tightening. I think things will be just fine but still found it strange. Owner had to go out of town today so he left it with me to do some initial shooting.
