    I just bought a used 3200 it has target turrets and mill dot retical. The gun it came off was a 223 and I had it put on a 223. When the guy at the gun shop boresighted it he didn't have to move either left or right or up and down adjustments much at all (3 to 4 clicks) to get it right to the boresighter, I do relize that should only get you on paper at a 100yrds.

    The problem that I have (if it is one) I only have 2" or 8 clicks of up adjustment left before it can't turn anymore on the up and down turret?? So even if I am on at 100 that leaves me no were to go for 2 or 300yrds.
    I have not shot it yet to try it, maybe tomorrow.
    The guy said assured me that the scope works perfect?!??

    Any thoughts?

    How high is your scope mounted? I aways try to start out with the scope set in the middle of it's settings before I mount and bore sight, then I'll use adjustable bushings such as Burris signature series rings to get it as close as I can without adjusting the scope. It will give you the most adjustment after mounted.

    shoot the gun first and see what it does. Maybe need a canted base. Ken Farrell, Inc. -- Rifle Related Products I have never liked boresighters. could never get one to work worth a darn. I always just look down the bore to get on the paper at 50 yards
