Re: new guy

First thing is take it to someone who knows what they are doing. If someone sold you the rings, they didn't know. A close look should solve the problem. Something is not right and you don't know where to start. The advice to shim will do you no good if you are flying blind. Too much chance of screwing up. If you know someone knowledgeable, (not a blowhard), take it to them. If not, a GOOD gunshop or smith is in order.
I think, therefore I am, conservative.

Kids are great, beer is good, and people are stupid.

Re: new guy

im using hornady 150 gr sst 3080 fps
100yds 200yds 300yds 400yrds 500yrds
+1.4" 0.0" -6.4" -18.9" -38.4" this is what the box tells me anyway. im using this for my coyote loads. im not claiming to know alot but i did take the scope off my 30-06 and put it on my .22 and got it right on after about ten shots having to crank the scope way up which in turn made it about center of the scopes travel. this weekend i am going to shoot again like ppl have suggested at 100 and 200 yrds and see where im at. i am just hoping since the scope has center cross plus four other spots for other ranges that i could get a 50 100 150 200 and 250 out of it. but ill be able to tell more tomorrow after shooting. i have yet to look at the travel of my scope yet either ill to that tomorrow too.
