I have mounted numerous scopes in my life and I know how to zero them. I use much care when I mount them. I use levels and a fat wrench to make them level and not to over tighten them.
The rifle was in very good working order before I took it to the smith. It is a remington vls in 243 caliber. the gun was shooting sub moa at 100 yards. I took it to the smith so he could install a jewel trigger and a muzzle brake
. The brake was installed and the trigger too. Both seem to be properly installed.
when i got it, the gun seemed to be somewhat unclean. So i cleaned it. I didnt think much about it. but when I went to shoot it, I could not zero the scope. The gun was shooting low and to the left. I was able to correct the elevation but not the windage. I ran out of clicks. Of course, this was not a problem before I sent it to the smith.
I will try another scope to see what happens, and If the gun zeroes, I am thinking I will have to get my scope repaired.
