General rifle season. Most area's white tail Muleys, Elk. My daughter has a special youth antlerless elk permit for the Missouri river breaks north west side. We're gonna take a week down there just us 2 and the horses

My go to has been a 270 for a few years now, though I still take the 7mag some, she's got a 7mm-08

Viper? My friend just got one, had it professionally mounted and he couldn't get it to hold a zero when sighting in. Then he finally got it close and took it up hunting and found out the reticle inside had gotten turned some how. Im positive vortex will fix it they have a great warrentee but still kinda turned me off of that scope

Re: opinions on millet scopes?

Been doing a little thinking on this, is there any way I can make a "zero" card and attach it to the end of my barrel and have it match up exactly with my crosshairs.... then twist my turrets up and down a bunch then return to zero and see if my crosshairs match back up with my original zero? That SHOULD let me know if the turrets are skipping at all correct? Has anyone done this before

I doubt it I could never get mine to focus on anything closer than about 20-25ft, maybe you'll have better luck though, cant hurt to try.
