Re: ? Removing boss for hunting
I'm pretty anal about stuff hanging on the barrel or touching the barrel. If any item changes I reshoot for verification, I do this several different times to become confident in the consistence of the change between components.
Short answer from me would be.... If you change anything you need to re-verify your zero and trajectory data to some degree. Long Range Hunting sort of precludes the "guessing game" model(s) of shooting...try it and know for sure.
