    Don't Take Anything For Granted

    After the Toby shoot last year where I failed to get the rifle zeroed I decided it's time for a looksie. Go to the range to zero the varmint rifle (7mm RM) after putting on another scope. Put a couple of red dots on the paper and staple it on the board at 25m, bore sight on a dot, then twiddle the right hand knob till the cross hair lines up on a dot. Pop a round off, hmm close to the dot, hang on, ... that's the wrong dot! About 9" to the right at 25m? Twiddle the knob to put full windage on and pop off another round, ... still 2" to the right at 25m.

    Get home and check all the mounts. All OK. Remove scope and replace it with a 2m length of 30mm heavy aluminium tube from the garage. Yup, things are a bit skew-whiff, inside of the right hand side of the tube lines up with the hole in the barrel. Remove the EGW rail and using the eyeometer can see that the holes in the top of the receiver are heading left looking from the blunt end. Bugger! So remounted the Rail and rings and mounted the scope with the +/- 20 offset inserts turned 90o to give me some windage.

    Highly likely Remingtons are on the piss more often than not I always use Leupold adjustable windage bases or Burris Signature rings,

    My little Zastava. Was Ok with the quick release Leupold rings/mounts it had before where difference could be adjusted out. But they were a pain as any change in pressure on the levers changed POI.

    You'd just have the problem of your frilly dress being caught in the matagouri.

    Poor quality control, the action holes are usually straight, its the recoil lug will be holding it pissed. take the bolt out and look through the action, line up with your eye the back of the action with the back of the chamber and see if the muzzel is off centre.

    You talking front and rear surfaces of the recoil lug not being parallel causing the barrel to point to one side?.

    Eeewww Tikka!

    I can pretty much bug hole with it at 100m once everything is pointing in the same direction. Love the double set trigger, breathe heavily enough and it'll probably go off (no good if Phllipo and Brads are around together).
