especially if you don't need any cant/slope for your scope (ie if you will be be shooting maybe 5-600 yds), you can just get a set of rings. some bases have some elevation built in (ie 10, 20, 30 moa, etc) so that you don't bottom your scope out when dialing/shooting out at longer ranges such as 1000+ yards.

This evening I reset the scope. Counted the full adjustment range and set it in the middle on both axes. Then I removed the scope and shimmed the rear ring with a piece of stranded electrical wire. Loosened the mount base clamp and adjusted the windage to zero in on the laser dot. Now I have a scope at center adjustment and that zeros on the laser: at 30 feet: that's as far as I can go without making some noise. I'm ready for the range now. Ill decide late whether to keep the mount or swap it out for something better.

Just to satisfy my curiosity: is there a one piece mount with build in windage and elevation adjustment for rough sighting?

if you are shimming with wires, thinking you've already lost the battle. something is wrong with your mount, scope or the way you've attached everything. i'd take it in to a gunstore, cabelas, etc and just see if they see anything obvious. 308 isn't a magnum but does have decent recoil, and wire strands are going to move around or compress on you and shift your scope.

not aware of a mount with elev or windage adjustments. have seen some bolt rifle bases that have windage adjustments. i've mounted a couple dozen scopes on AR's and bolt guns and never had more than a MOA or two or three adjustment either way.

For a more longer-term solution, instead of electrical wire use duct tape.

seriously, just saying, the wire will not hold up. If you need to do this, something is really wrong.
