    I always assumed you put it in and then held the gun in a vice and moved the scope to the dot at whatever distance. Not too sure because I've only ever done it like gibo

    I would have thought a bore sighter, as it is not on a trajectory would go to infinity or as far as the beam reaches...I tried one (not nikko sterling) and each time it was removed and replaced it gave a different reading...I find it so much easier to remove a primer and fit the case into the breach and sight from there.

    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    Do you mean a colimeter (sp). It should state it on the device but I'd guess 100y.

    My bad...I see they make laser and collimator...I was thinking laser...but they are both parallel, you set your own height through scope.
