Re: Sighting in??? please help
Get a laser bore sighter.
Tape a piece of paper to the wall.
Place a known good T Square againt the wall and place a level on top of the cross member.
When the bubble reads level, Make your Verticle line.
Slide the T Squae down to the center of the verticle line and place the level back on the top. When the bubble reads level, make your Horizontal line.
Move off 35 feet, or what ever directions the laser bore sighter says (Mine says 35 feet and it worked perfectly).
Position your scope, AFTER YOU HAVE CENTERED THE CROSS HAIRS BY CLICKING THEM ALL THE WAY IN ONE DIRECTION, THEN COUNTING THE CLICKS ALL THE WAY TO THE OTHER DIRECTION, THEN GO BACK HALFWAY. NOW THE SCOPE HAS MAXIMUM ADJUSTMENT IN EVERY DIRECTION, in the rings and slowly tighten up the scope ring screws until you can just barely move the scope forward and back, and rotate it.
Put the bipod on you stock, lay down, adjust the scope far enough away to see the whole field of view from wall to wall. THIS is you eye relief.
Now rotate the scope until the cross hairs line up with the lines on the paper. NOW you are level for up and down and side to side..
Now use your laser boresighter to adjust the hieght and left to right.
Then go to the range and see how well you did. You should only need a feww adjustments once your barrel is fouled.
P.S> You may want to lap your scope rings. Midway USA sells a scope mounting kit that has all that stuff in it. Kevin at Moncour County Rifles can do it too - he is a PRO....
