BUT AFTER messing with the turrets. Now at 100yrs both turret indicators are at the 3 line on my Monarch.
If the scope is canted to the left ,It will shoot to the right the further out you get.
Level the rifle and then level the scope.
Place a piece of tape on the scope and on one ring and make a mark that matches
both pieces of tape and then shoot @ 100 yards and @ 300 yards if the 300 yard
POI is off from the 100 yard POI then loosen the rings just enough to rotate the
scope and move the scope in the direction of the hits @ 300 yards.
Tighten and try it again. if it moves half way then the marks will tell you how much
more to move the scope .(Be sure and tighten the rings between adjustments).
Once the POI is the same at all distance your home free and you can remove the tape.
Just one way to mount the scope level.
