I purchased the Leupold tool and it works very well. I think it was about $60.

You're talking about the model that looks like an actual cartridge and you have to chamber it?

for bolt guns these things are a waste of time/money. "Bore Sighting" is performed by looking down the bore then putting the sights on the same spot.I set mine up in a sandbag down the hallway of my house with a target on the far wall. Its that easy.

Excellent point. That is how I did all of my bolt actions before buying a tool. The Leupold tool is safe to use and cool (it's a small magnitized rectangle that sticks to the front of the barrel for any caliber) but only if you have $60+ bucks to spend or something other than a BA.

I had gotten one that slipped into the muzzle. It wasn't worth the money for a bolt action. Just Look down the barrel and line the scope on a subject. It takes me about six shots to get a usable 100 yard sighting. After I bore sight, I take one shot at 25, 50, 100, and then a couple more at 100 to make sure I am on target. The rest of my shots I test on coyotes. :pot: db

I have not tried the bore-sight. This product should work well for your needs though.http://eod-lasers.com/id2.htmlThe video is in the lower left corner for proper usage.

Anything you shove in the muzzle could be dangerous...

I used to use the old fashoned look down the bore method. Always worked well enough for me. This year however I added three new rifles to the collection along with scopes. Each time I had the gun shop do a boresight just to get me on paper. What a waist of time. One job was nearly four feet off the paper. One of the scopes I bought came with a free BSA bore sight kit from Natchez. I've done several sight ins with it now. Every one on the first try I would be no more than 1-2 inch from the Ten X. Very good tool.

Yep, I've got one of those BSA bore site kits. Works well and fast. Very easy to use too.
