    i need some help on setting the turrets to zero. i bore sighted it at 100 yds. . Now when i set the elevation turret to zero it is 2 marks off. i loosened the turret but it won't go down anymore. so i'm already on the 2nd mark and i can't get it (the mark on the turret) to zero. what am i doing wrong?

    The resultant bias seems normal to me.
    A 30moa base/ring bias would leave you closer to the stop(with your hundred yard zero), but that would leave you little windage adjustment and possibly optical, or reliability issues.

    I think you mean you cant get it to zero on the horizonal scale right. If so, no problem that would be extra down adjustment which can be utilized with tapered bases, BUT most likely you will find you have enough remaining elevation up adjustment to get you to at least 800yds most likely further. Good luck.
