I searched for scope mounts and looked through 200 posts. Tons on scopes but nada on mounts. Aren't these kinda important? I've used Conetrol for years b/c they are the strongest I've found. I have NEVER had a scope go off zero with Conetrol mounts and I've banged them around alot. BUT...I just spent an hour and a half remounting a scope in Conetrol mounts. I never did get the reticle perfectly aligned. Every time I got it right, I then moved it by tightening things down. I never really noticed the reticle alignment issue with these before I started with this longer range business on more than a casual basis. Its just not been a big deal inside 300 yards for me. Now I'm thinking about it. I don't know if the Conetrol design is adequate. The way you mount with them almost HAS to torque the tube. And I'm not too sure these bases line up real well. Is base-tube-ring alignment that important inside five or six hundred yards? How about the reticle issue? I can get damn close. If its not too critical I'll stay with the Conetrol just so I'll know my scope is always on. Alternatives? Gentry?
