Sighting problem on Savage Long Range Hunterrrecte
I just recently bought a Savage 11/111 Long Range Hunter in 300 Win Mag. I put Weaver bases on it with medium height rings and mounted a Zeiss Z600 scope on it. Before putting the scope on, I counted the click through the entire windage and elevation range and centered both within the range. After getting the scope squared up, I tightened everything down and began bore sighting the scope. Here is where the problem began. The scope was just slightly off on the windage, which I corrected with just a few clicks, but I ran out of range before I could get the elevation adjusted. It was reading high and as I adjusted it downward, I simply ran out of adjustment before getting to zero. Has anyone else had the problem? How did you fix it. BTW......the Zeiss has a total range of 280 clicks, so from the middle it has 140 clicks of adjustment. That's 35 inches! That is a lot of adjustment and I still couldnt get there.
