Greetings, I have a Howa 1500 that I like very much. I wanted a good scope mounts so I purchased Burris turn in mounts with signature rings. What I am running into after mounting it is eye relief is not correct. I cannot bring the scope back far enough to get a full sight picture. Any idea on scope mounts. the Howa accepts the same mounts as the Remington 700 SA in 223. Thanks

Yup, you need 'extended' mounts- They will allow you to move the scope rearward a little more.
If your Howa is a long action, and the scope is a short one, you may need to utilize a picatinny/weaver rail...they, to me are efin ugly but they do the trick, because proper eye placement and cheek weld is paramount for good accuracy.
