Re: Ivey Rings
Test #1 last weekend was a bust. I was going to first try them on a .223 to do some close work and check to make sure they were tracking. I could not get them zeroed, I had my right windage maxed out on my NF and still was hitting left edge of paper at 100 yards. Tried a few times to get that sorted out. Switched it over to the Barrett and re-centered my windage knob and was able to zero after two rounds.
Dialed up 20 MOA, took a shot, back down to zero, took a shot, my zero shifted 5 MOA up. Dialed back up and it seemed consistent as far as POI, but zero remained 5 MOA off.
I decided since I was out there and I had the target set up already to send a few at distance. Had a 3' plate at 2100 yards. Dialed elevation which seemed to work was able to stay fairly consistent on elevation, but had to dial over 20 MOA of wind, a shooting buddy was shooting his SAUM and connecting with right around 1 MOA of windage dialed....something seems to be amiss with the set-up.
I still am holding out hope, contacted the manufacturer today, he was out of the office, but is supposed to be calling me back tomorrow. Going to take the set-up back out for further testing once I get some input from him.
