    Rem 700 TI won't shoot

    The TI is fairly light and has a fair amount of recoil. I know I dont shoot well with a rifle with both of those qualities

    Bullet drift no wind

    It sounds like your scope might not be aligned with your barrel. What base and rings are on your rifle? I have had that problem with the scope out of alignment myself.

    Huskavarna 7mm mag

    The easiest way I know of to be sure it is not the scope is to try one you know is good. Did the gun shoot good in the past? If so what have you changed? What scope do you have on it? I had a weaver in the mid 70's that always worked well until something came loose from a hard hit and it did...

    Huskavarna 7mm mag

    If it's shooting as bad as you say, I would start by making sure the scope is good and go from there.

    SWAROVSKI OPTIK Laser Guide 8x30 Range Finder Problems

    I used a friends Swaro last year to compare to my Leica 900 and a buddies new Leica 1200 over wheat fields as I was wanting to upgrade. It ranged great, just couldn't see the numbers. Went with a new Leice 1600 for that reason.

    Long Range shots - elevation right on always to the right

    x 2 on that. Same thing I said a few replys ago 4.75 inches in 300 yds is a little much for drift I would say something is not set up quite right just yet

    Long Range shots - elevation right on always to the right

    I would agree with the with the explanation of why the POI would be 10” to the right at 1000 yds. due to spin and coriolis drift if POI was dead on at 100 yds. However, NVHUNTER1 states that POI is 3/4” left at 100 yds. (8-24 post) and 4” rt. at 400 yds. with dead on at 200 in his opening post...

    Best rangefinder

    I used both the Leica & Swaro on my hunt last year to compare in the field side by side. The Swaro ranged a little farther but the Leica was a lot easier to read the range. I didn't care for the orange color of the Swaro's readout as it blended with the color of background. I realy liked the...
