Re: Shooting groups at distance
Yeah I had mentioned about that exd, my gunsmith is meticulous about making sure that the scopes are perfectly mounted and aligned, the only thing is it costs everytime I wanna do something different so I purchased one of these and it works great for me, I never really realized how much my vertical crosshair was off until I used the exd. Its hard to expain but if you look at a photo of it you'll know what i'm talking about, but basically all your doing is keeping your rifle perfectly level according to your scopes vertical position, from there, using a plumb bob, (with the ring screws loose) you just rotate your scope till your vertical crosshair is perfectly aligned with the string of the plumb bob. I usually set up the plumb bob about 20 or 30 yards out, if you have a shed or a garage you could just hang it from the ceiling so the wind doesn't have it swinging. I personally think its pretty important to have cause once you start dialing for really long shots your adjustment is gonna move either left or right the further out you have to adjust for, depending on how the crosshair is off. Also, if you have a scope level you're gonna want to mount it also using this tool so that everything is in line together.
