Re: need some help with a problem

You could try another stock or if you just want to know if the bedding is screwed up so bad that it's bending stuff, just take the barreled action out of the stock and try bore sighting the barreled action without the stock on it. It would take a tremendous amount of bending to throw it off as far as you say.

Have you checked all bases and rings to make sure they are tight and that nothing has moved or is loose?

Get some daylight tomorrow and try it either bare or with another stock just to try and eliminate the possibilities. Good luck.

Re: need some help with a problem

I've only run across this on 2 occasions. You can take a coke can or beer can and cut it with a pair of snips or even scissors and make a shim to go under your rear base. Drill the holes for the base screws and cut it so that it is not visible around the base.

Or a better method is to bed the rear and front bases while using a scope alignment tool or your scope to keep them in alignment. Shim the rear base in the center of it with a small piece of coke can and get the bedding up under the base so that the bedding will take the pressure when you screw the base down. Put a little bedding under the front base because it will be minutely slanted as well. Make sure and use a release compound on the base so you don't permanently glue it together.

I would recommend researching bases or rings that are made to correct problems like this, but with an older gun it woud be unlikely that you could find one to fit.

Well it's not looking good I get the same thing with the old stock. I dont understand how this could happen in the blink of an eye! If something was bent this bad I would think I could see it....

Re: need some help with a problem

turn the turret up, when moving the crosshairs to the target, they move the opposite direction, down moves the crosshairs up and vice versa.
