Sighting in My TC

I just purchased the new Ultimate Slam by Leupold and went to the range. I am shooting 150 grs of triple seven and 250gr hornady sst. The problem I am having is at 25yds I am shooting 2" low. I moved the target back to 100 yds and cannot find it anywhere. Any thoughts?

Re: Sighting in My TC

Just a thought:

What kind of mount do you have? I have a Talley integral base/ring set up with a VX-1 3x9 and mine shot really low at 25, 50, and 100. I am nearly out of vertical adjustment on mine at 100 yards. Be careful with the Leupy because if you go to far it will need to go back to factory because it will not track anymore. You may need to shim the base if you are close to running out of adjustment.

Coming up 8 clicks should have put you close to a 100 yard zero with that combo.

Tnanks kfrye, I found the problem it was with my rings. I changed them to lower rings. Now im cutting holes at 100yds. Let you know if I get anything.

Glad to hear you got it dialed in. Care to share your load combination? I'd also be interested in your opinion of the scope overall. I am shopping for one of these style scopes, but I'm wondering how the light gathering will be on these ultimateslam scopes, or if I should look for a LR scope with turrets.

Im loading 150 gr of triple 7 topped off with a hornady 250 gr sst. I went shooting today and at 100yds I was touching holes with three shots. I wish they offered the scope in a 50 mm objective to bring in a little more light. Theres also another thing they should have changed is the circle in around the center cross. A little cluttered. Overall its a pretty good scope.

Re: Sighting in My TC

Why put a scope on a gun that will produce one hundred yard groups anyway? My Lyman Grt Plains 54 breaks skeet at 100yds. consistently and so does my Ruger ML-10 and neither have scopes. I figure if I can see the target and I usually do way before they are at 100 yards, and the loads are lighter than what you areloading, mine are at 100grs. of Triple 7 and that's the accuracy that I get. Once you find accuracy, adding more powder won't do much for you.
