Re: remington 700 problem. help
So how many scopes have you sighted in or fitted to an action ?
If you have a 2 piece base, you know that the front and back section are different, right ? The curvature at the back of a Remington Receiver is not the same as at the front.
Did you bore sight it ? Do you know what bore sighting is ? If you do anything to an optic or mount, it is the first thing you check BEFORE you go to the range. With a bore sighting, you should be on paper at 50 yards, every time.
So, starting at the beginning, it sounds like the scope was mounted when you got it back. If so, what were you doing to it that got the thread to the action stripped ? To get to those screws usually requires that you take the scope out the rings and the rings off the base first ?
So how about telling us the whole story and not leaving out any parts ?
