Re: Misaligned Scope mounting holes
RE: Bore Sights: I tried the kind that stick in the Bore from Bushnell and after 3 tries I gave up on the type. If you put the bore sight in the barrel, lube the insert a little bit, remove and rotate the bore sight, you can end up with a 8" -10" diameter circle. There are a series of small Allen wrench adjustments around the perimeter of the bore sight, where supposedly you can adjust the laser, but the smallest circle I have been able to get it down to was a 1 1/4" at 15' after screwing around with it for about an hour. Even called Bushnell and they replaced several of them, but now have 2 brand new bore sights I don't trust. Would sell them cheap.
Went to a internal bore sight and went through 3 of these until I finally got one from all places, China that was actually centered. Marked each one with a Sharpie pen line on the top and then rotated it in the chamber 45 degree's and marked each spot on the target. the last one came up very good at 15' through an entire rotation. I recheck it periodically, but is still close enough to get me on paper when I don't have the time to go shoot, since the range out here isn't convenient.
Unfortunately the sun here in Tucson washes out most lasers at anything over about 20'. My 1000' commercial Rotary laser is only good for about 600' here. Noticed that most commercial lasers are going to Green.
With the problems I had even getting this thing onto paper, I'm content that I'm close enough and can use the Scope for adjustment to finalize it.
If the darn thing has a curve to the barrel going to be very surprised. the triangular barrel gives it more stiffness that most circular barrels of the same caliber, but could be mis-drilled I guess or bent at the factory, but with a bright light, there's no internal shadows, just nice concentric rings. Won't know until I shoot it in. Actually, the only reason it hasn't been shot in is that a friend with his 1/2 MOA eyes will do the shooting (I have cataracts, which are going to be removed in a couple of months) and he isn't available for a couple of weeks.
Anyway, thanks for all the input from everyone. Have meaned out the difference between the Burris inserts, the adjustable bases and the scope and am confident I can get it on the paper at least. Actually, am more optimistic than that, but I can still be surprised.
I just finished Hillary Clinton's book and think it should be rated as "Fiction". Just some more of the Clinton's Metal Masturbation of themselves.
It pays to know the opposition.
