On my Ruger 1022 I put a cheap Bushnell 3X9 and loved it for snowshoes.  So easy to pick through the brush.  :happy1:

OK, you sharpshooters, snipers. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rotflmao: got the 22 zeroed in. :happy1: my 30-06, bore sited, my azz. :confused: long story short I went to 50 yards roughly. Right and left is  :happy1:. My high/ low is still 8-9 inches low and I had to have turned it up at least 11/2 rounds. :scratch:

I had this issue with a scope I put on a 30-30 but don't recall how many rotations I moved it up before I got it zeroed in.

So my question is, just how many rotations on the up/down can I go before I guy needs to maybe shim the scope? Is this normal on occasions?

  1/4 inch. Per click. So I'm assuming 1/4 inch per hundred yards.

I would think you'd still be fine but why not call the place you bought the scope from and see what they say.

I've never "shimmed" a scope in my life...
Scope not tight enough?
Are these see through scope rings?
Did you buy a crappy cheap scope?

Yeah...bore sighting " might" get you on the paper. I usually will crack a couple off at 50' with a 36"X 36" piece of cardboard just to see what to expect. Then adjust from there.

I bought the diamond backs from vortex 2 hundys.
Yes I believe there rings.

I keep plugging away, I got all summer yet. Just needed to take a break. For a target I was using a 2 ft by 4 ft political sign. :rotflmao:

Just when glenn started this thread all was well with my vortec scope on my .22,then friday the cross hairs started to break,this is the second time in 5 years,looking thru the scope was like looking through a kaleidoscope but dead center was spot on,so the good news the vortec scope is a dandy when its functioning with a lifetime warrenty,so  dropped the scope off at my local sport shop to let them send it in and wouldn't ya know when I got home the neighborhood squrriels were having a meeting at my feeders,fixed em with wd40 on the feeder pole.very amusing.

$30?  Highway robbery.    Just buy one of those laser sight in things.  They work great and you will have it forever.

I need to know also LPS if they mounted it right with the correct rings or whatever needs to be done.

Tracking that deer last fall for 4 hours still haunts me  :confused: training-087 :banghead:

When I bought my .243 a few years ago it was supposed to be bore sighted at the factory.  When I went and shot it the scope wasn't even tightened up.  I had a guy bore sight my Ithaca Deer Slayer about 30 years ago when I bought it.  I had to force him to take $5.  Still to this day it is right on the mark.  And it isn't babied neither.  I want to get one of those lazer bore sighters too.  I just looked on Amazon and there are countless models for under $30.  They come with multiple calibers of sight in things.  I am ordering one.

Glenn I just ordered a July Tech bore sighter.  The best looking one I saw and it's only $39.99.  My .22 needs tuning in and will use it to check my .243 also.  Even works on shotguns.  Can't wait!  Thanks for the inspiration my friend.  :happy1:
