..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....

....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
