Scope Question

12 posts in this topic

I have mounted a scope with the prescribed base and rings for a 444 AE bore sighted and went to range. Problem: I have exhausted elevation and it still is at least 16 clicks too short. Any suggestions?ThanksRon

Just a thought. Check to see that all your mounting screws are equally tight on your rings. .

Are your mounts reversible front to back? Was the scope New in box when you received it? By bore sighting you're saying you physically looked down the bore and then the scope? Did you have to do a lot of knob twisting during your bore sighting?

Scope was new out of box. Needed angle ejection rings. Bore sighted with Quadmans bore sighter. The rings are awfull high but figured that was due to AE. Bases and rings are weavers. Ron

First problem is probably the bore sighter. I know you can't look down the bore of that Marlin while checking the scope. A scope shouldn't run out of adjustment for 100 yard sight-in if everything is copacetic. Those little laser bore sighter's that start out as a .223 and you slide that into your caliber are pretty good. Something has to be wrong with the mounts.

Okay, switched rings every which way but, still short on bore sighter ( bushnell). Looks like to keep it at least on paper I would have to shim (ugg). Anyway, what is best way to shim? ThanksRon

Ron if you need to shim, you can just use some aluminum can that you cut with scissors. If it's shooting low the shims would go under the scope on the rear ring. It doesn't take very much so make two and try that. :lol:
