    Help VX5HD sighting in

    To bore sight need to adjust scope up (down on the dial) and need to go past zero stop. Not sure vx5 can do that?Name:  20180805_125449.jpg

    Couple of shots at 600y on 4" circle with 260AI. Quite pleased with glass...would be helpful if manual provided directions for the above.

    Just take a shit before you go out hunting Bob. That will be a bigger weight saving than a Ti action mate...

    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more
