Weaver Tactical Grand Slam ?

I mounted this on a 257 WM with Lupey low rings and the same make bases. My problem is that I have 6 mils of up and almost 10 mils of down. Im having trouble wraping my head around this? Why it is not the other way around. There is 16.5 mils of internal adjustment. This will still take me out to 700 yards with the load that Im shooting. I hunt whitetail in northwest WI with this rig. Im roughly 1.5 above center line of bore. I have a 100 yard zero. You can view the scope on MidwayUSA. Here is a link if it works.

Thanks in advance.

Scott.

Re: Weaver Tactical Grand Slam ?

If you are saying that are are zeroed and only have 6 MILs of up left then what that means is that you had to use a lot of your adjustment in order to get your gun zeroed and you don't have much left for dialing in distance.

A couple options if 6 MILs aren't enough. Get a angled base and then remount.

Buy Burris signature rings and use their offset rings to angle your scope more like you want. Remount and be happy!

Ya I was just looking at different bases. Where Im all confused is why it is 6 mils up and 10 mils down?

Re: Weaver Tactical Grand Slam ?

your scope turrets are not currently centered therefore there is more down than up.

Is the scope on your gun? Are you sighted in at a particular distance?

That is what i thought. You had to use a lot of up adjustment to get zeroed at 100yards. So you don't have much up adjustment left for dialing in for long range shots. You need a angled base or the Burris rings I spoke of.

Re: Weaver Tactical Grand Slam ?

I did my ballistics program again. I made a mistake somewhere. With 6 mils of come up that takes me out to 900 yards with the load Im shooting. Its all computing much better now. I only shoot that far at steel or paper just for a good past time. I did shoot a nice 3 shot .4 center to center @ 100 yards today though. I really like the scope so far.

Thanks for the input.

Scott
