Bump proof scope/rings

Today my heavy gun twisted sideways and the Nightforce bumped the bench.Not a bad bump really but it shifted the POI by 4 minutes. Is there a sure solution?

Re: Bump proof scope/rings

What kind of rings and bases are you using?? With a NF scope I would start with the rings and bases as it takes alot to move the POI in a NF scope.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Re: Bump proof scope/rings


Give us some more info;

What was the range you were shooting at?
How many rounds fired just prior to the bump?
Was it perfectly zeroed?
How many rounds fired after to verify the shift?
Is it a BR or NXS?
What rings and bases are on it now?
Have the bases or ring come loose?
Action screws are tight?
Has the reticle or scope rotated?
Has the scope moved forward?
What cartridge the rifle shoots?
How much does it weigh?
Was the shift vertical or horizontal?
Have you shot it since and rezeroed it?
Does it hold a zero now?
What's the history on the load you're using, is it a new one?
