I can give you one solution that I have used twice here at my gunshop in the last 2 years. First--buy a set of Burris Signature rings(with the inserts)--Second--purchase 1 each of the +.020 and the -.020 inserts to replace the originals.
In the forward ring place a -.020 in the top half and a +.020 in the bottom half. No need to do anything to the rear ring.

This will solve your problem and not put any undue stress on your scope..... I am so impressed with the Burris system with the inserts that I am gradually changing to these rings on all of my personal rifles.......Ol' John
