Re: Zeiss 6-24x56 Divari Windage problems

Sorry just now getting back to you guys. I've been gone for a couple of days. When I contacted Zeiss they did tell me to go ahead and send the scope back. The new one arrived at my office yesterday while I was gone. Hopefully everything will be fine now. If not it sounds like I have a lot of great advice to try. Hopefully I will not need it, we'll find out. Thanks again for the input. I will let you know what happens. By the way Zeiss has awesome service.

Thanks.

Re: Zeiss 6-24x56 Divari Windage problems

Got it figured out. It was in my back base. Made a big difference. Thanks for all the info. I have another questions. I'm shooting a 9.3 x64, 250gr accubond at 2950fps. Looking for another bullet for it, that would perform well at long distance. I know I don't have that much of a selection and was wondering if anyone had any other ideas. I thought about the 286 Nos., its BC isn't to far off. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Zeiss 6-24x56 Divari Windage problems

I am having a windage problem with my Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50 MC . I bought brand new Warne Maxima Quick Detach Rings with Weaver Bases. and mounted it on a brand new Weatherby Vanguard Varmint 308 win. I tried to bore sight it but ran out of windage by about 2 inches... I am not sure what I need to do here.

Most likely a problem with either barrel or base installation. The OP sent his scope back only to find out it was a problem with his base. Problems with the rifle are far more common than most people think.

Look at my earlier post, #7 I think. You can use an 18" straight edge and a second ruler to measure the distance between the ruler and the barrel.

Thanks, for the reply Bruce! I was pretty thrown off, Because I had my Huskemaw mounted on it prior to getting this new scope and didn't have any problems. I just picked up some new bases i got new rings to try as well. I a going to reset the scope to factory zero and we will see how it ends up. Thanks again for the input.
