Re: need some help with a problem

With the gun secured and you see the target centered in the bore, and the crosshairs are high on the target then turn the elevation turret in the opposite direction you want the crosshairs to move. Even though the crosshairs are way high, try turning the elevation turret up and watch the crosshairs come down.

Re: need some help with a problem

Were you turning the elevation turret in the "up" direction or the "down" direction when you were adjusting the scope crosshairs?

Re: need some help with a problem

well now that you mention it & looking at the turret looks like i was turning it in the up direction. But as I was turning it in the up direction the cross was dropping on the target.

Cool. I just wanted to make sure you were turning it in the right direction to move the crosshairs down.

If you think it's a bedding problem all you'd have to do is take the barreled action out of the stock and try it with out the possibility of the stock interfering..

Re: need some help with a problem

You had me going there for a min. I thought i was going crazy! I was thinking of taking the barreled action out of the new stock & putting it in the old one. Is that what you are suggesting?
