Sorry about that. Leupold rear base, adjustable and yes I used the adjustment during the bore sighting, then fine tuned it @ the range.

Re: Question about optical center

Years ago I used all Leupold and Burris bases and scopes and began purchasing Nightforce equipment. I installed Badger one piece bases and set the scopes in Badger rings. Not meaning to stir the pot, but I would suggest you do the same along with replacing the wood stocks with well bedded synthetic ones on the rifles you don't look at on the wall. I know this is a costly venture, but it is worth it especially when you're trying to make that one long shot. BTW, I still use Leupold and Burris scopes, but the bases on all shooters have been replaced with one piece bases, either Badger or Farrell.

Re: Question about optical center

Excellent suggestions by all, thanks for your input.
Before I forget... it's a Bell & Carson synthetic stock.
I am confidant that I've got everything mounted & adjusted properly. Trigger time will determine if there is an issue with any of the internal components. If it is off center on my next trip to the range, then I guess it's time to throw the Leupie back in the box and hot foot it to the post office.
