Re: proper torque
When you work for George you will get to know Marty and Eric - couldn't be around better guys.
Please keep me informed on that Bushnell tactical, I have ordered one but they are not in the system until later this month.
If you wouldn't mind a suggestion, here is a turret test that I do on the many scopes I get to play with.
..get the point of aim and the point of impact as close as possible at 100 yards - in other words a really good zero.
..zero your turrets, the old B&L turrets are very easy to slip or zero
..put up a fresh target and fire one shot - hopefully it will hit dead center.
..turn your turret all the way to the bottom, counting minutes or clicks and then return to your 100 yard zero and fire a shot.
..turn your turret all the way to the top, recording minutes or clicks and then return to your 100 yard zero and fire another shot.
..repeat this with the windage, go all the way to the left and back and fire a shot, then to the right and back and fire a shot.
..all of the shots fired should be in a group if the turret is returning properly.
..this will also tell you how much total adjustment you have in your turrets, plus how much elevation you have from your 100 yard zero setting.
I will be doing this when I get my hands on one of those scopes, would be nice to compare your results if you would give it a try.
(Mike Rock barrel, McHale stock, CZ action - that will make for a good shooter! - I have shot George's rifles built on that recipe.)
Good luck with your training,
