I have only about 4-5 clicks left to go to get me in the right direction, but thats not near enough..
I would take it off and check the thickness at each end with a Micrometer.
If it is accurate +or - 2 or 3 thousandths then you have to start over zeroing the weapon
.010 thousandths difference would make a huge difference in elevation. Also don't bother checking it at less than 100 yards.
Get a large piece of paper (At least 4'x 4') and place a target in the center of it. run the
elevation turret all the way up and then all the way down counting the clicks. (Dont turn
the turrets hard when you reach the stops) Next count 1/2 of the clicks up and stop.
(this should center the scope).
Next fire the weapons and with the weapon held where it won't move. and with the cross
hairs in the center of the target, move the scope to the bullet hole.
