If so what shooting bench should I buy. Thanks for the info
Here is a very simple method for bolt guns.
1= First remove the bolt.
2 = Then place on a good rest or sand bags.
3 = Look down the bore at a round bulls eye target (The round bulls eye is easy to center
in the bore). and center it up.
4 = try to adjust the scope cross hairs to the center of the bulls eye with the bore centered
around the target.
5 = fire one round holding the cross hairs dead center in the bulls eye.
6 = reset the rifle to point at the center of the target and without moving the rifle ,Move the
cross hairs to the bullet impact.
7 = Next shoot, aiming at the center of the bulls eye to verify the zero.
This is called a one shot sight in and is easy to do and a good place to start at longer distances.
Normally you will be very close on your second shot.
