Hi, I tried to set intonation on my guitar by moving the saddles backward but I'm facing a problem, the saddles are at the maximum but the intonation is still not set up perfectly, it still requires more length between the nut and the bridge, I tried to reduce strings action, but to perfectly set intonation perfectly have to reduce action too much and the strings are buzzing. Any suggestions ?
Ps : I'm setting my intonation for c standard tuning and use 56-13 gauge

Sorry for my english, it's not my primary language.

what type of bridge? If you have springs on the screw the saddle threads into, I have cut the springs to get more room to move back.

I made a mistake, I'm using a 7 strings set ( http://www.dv247.com/assets/products/34645_l.jpg ) and I took off the 10, so it's a 56-13 set.
I don't know what is my bridge as it does not seems to be a fender or gibson standard, my guitar is an eastwood gp. Here's a photo of my bridge : http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2014/04/1390603302-android-image-01-24-2014.jpg
I' m using c standard tuning (two steps down from standard tuning).

Can I see adjusting hex screws in that picture? It looks like they're on the bridge posts, which would allow you to move the bridge backwards.

looks like them to me as well

If none of that helps just try different strings (different brand).

Is the guitar a bolt on or is the neck permanently attached? If it's bolt on it's possible to shim to neck pocket a bit as well to lengthen the strings slightly.
