I think running both rings offset should make it work for ya.

I have had a similar problem plus now a cataract in my right (shooting) eye.

A number of years ago, when I seriously started fooling with #1's I went through the same thing as far as eye relief. I fiddled with several sets of rings and also considered custom mounts and rings. I ended up with the double off set #4's from Ruger. With some tuning (sliding the scope back and forth) in the rings I was able to get them (all my scopes) set exactly where they needed to be.

It can work..... Good luck.

James, I recently took my Leopold 3X9X40 Rifleman off of my Ruger #1 RSI in .243, and placed a Vortex 3X9X40 Diamondback on it as it has at least 4" of eye relief. Now I get the full field of view when I pull it up to my shoulder. Note I had cataracts removed from both of my eyes, and had a new lens inserted, in place of the astigma.(spelling). Any way I've used the #5 rings which are just the standard high rings used on the Ruger #1's. BTW I'm 72 so I'm not that far behind you.

I used these: Burris Ruger to Weaver Scope Base Adapter Ruger #1, 77/22, 77/44, Redhawk Gloss, Burris #: 410991. I also used Millet Angle-Loc dual extension rings to get the scope where wanted. The scope I used was a Burris 6x mini compact scope with at least 5 inches of eye relief. It adds a bit of steel to the gun but the scope is easier to the use. I'll try to get a picture in the next couple of days.
