Re: Perfect Every Time Scope Mounting

Thank you very much for such a clear explanation, yes I will be using a sloped base (20MOA). Now I know as well that I need to center the retile at the opticle range. Thanks again.

Re: Perfect Every Time Scope Mounting

I understand the value in being somewhat centered at a select range. But I'm not quite getting the use in exact centering.

Once your optically centered, how do you determine the resulting zero?
Are you saying that if your centered zero turns out 384yds, or 80yds, that you use this as your zero range?

I am guessing that you would rotate the scope at the range you want to be able to shoot at and make sure it is roating in a circle at that range and not eliptically. Again I am guessing as this is all new to me.

Re: Perfect Every Time Scope Mounting

This exercise of precise centering doesn't sound particularly practical.

And likely isn't necessary but it is what his directions were referring to and does give an exact center baseline for those that may have some OCD issues!

Re: Perfect Every Time Scope Mounting

So how bout my questions w/regard to this perfect setup?
Once you've gone through all this optical centering, with burris ring inserts, what do you have for your zero?
And did US Optics mention turning the scope to set plumb adjustments through the range?

Re: Perfect Every Time Scope Mounting

By the time a fella got the perfect center for the desired zero range, the screws on the scope rings would be worn out - thread-less...
