    ..okay...I must admit it, after hunting groundhogs for over 35 years, with over 2,000 confirmed kills....I must admit that I screw up once in awhile!!...lol...

    ...the other evening, I was re-marking my Nightforce scope for the zero settings....did the elevation okay...counted the revs, etc....then I did the windage...no problem...


    ...the next day, I went hunting....
    ..switch to 1080p for higher resolution

    .....afterwards, I got the target box out to check my zero...wow 1 full revolution off on my windage turret....


    so...the next day, I went back out to get some redemption!!

    ,,,this means WAR!!!!.....lol..... gun)gun)


    ...not AGAIN!! :eek:

    :rolleyes:

    ..okay.....STUPID ME!......after sighting in my 6PDK with the new Vortex PST 2.5-10x44 Scope...I glance down at the target and think....hmmnnn....the group looks to be about 3/4MOA low at 100 yards.....

    ..so I get home, click in 4 FULL clicks UP.....loosen the (3) allen head screws and move the ZERO line on the elevation turret.....

    ...so, here was the RESULT....

    ..btw.......this means WAR.......silly g'hogs....


    switch to 1080p for higher res...

    ....okay....I think I figured out just what the heck is the problem...my Eberstock Backpack was causing my windage turret to rotate 1 Full REV whenever I would insert or remove my AR15....I have since wrapped it with electrical tape [temporary] to prevent this...

    ...on Vortex PST 2.5-10x44 Scopes..there is 86MOA of adjustment, the horizontal graduations are very fine = especially for these bifocal-corrected eyes!! = very easy to get "lost" by one REV

    .....yeah, a zero stop would be nice, however, the electrical tape is a decent stop-gap measure in the interim!

    ..my other Vortex PST scopes do have zero-stops.....


    I took a fine RED Sharpie and colored where the ZERO position should be, as you can see in the pic, the distance between the 0, 2, 4, 6 graduations is very SMALL......in relation to the vertical 0 line...

    it is real easy to be off by one REV
