im new to the internet but ive seen alot of ppl helping others out on here and many other places good or bad. so im giving it a try.i have a herters j9 30-06 it had an old 7x9 red field scope on it. at the time i got the gun it was a nail driver at 100 yds. i have recently bought a bushnell 4-16x40 scope trying to get a better picture out to 200-300 yrds away. ive been trying to bore sight it at about 20 yrds then moving to paper at 50. i have the left to right down pat its right on but im still shooting about a foot above center, and if i did it right im bottomed out on my adjustments. ??? i dont know if im backwards or what im doing wrong or if i just need to change the mounts. i do know that the rear is taller then the front where the rings mount to but that i belive is because the rear of the action is lower than the front. it seems to me if id bring the front of the scope up id have more room for adjustment. ?? any help is welcome.
