    Low 50's this am, heading to 92 this afternoon. Not a cloud in the sky, a really nice early summer day. Cooling off into the 80 the rest of the week.

    Sighting a Rifle Scope

    I have used the same one as Fred. It is not a laser but helps get you "on target" quicker. Around here, you bring in you scope, rifle and mounts and most sporting goods store will mount your scope and bore sight it for you, especially if you buy one or more of the components at their store.

    Sighting a Rifle Scope

    That makes sense. I have never shot a pellet or bb gun in competition. My shooting of them were usually from 10 to 50 yards, sometimes more. Those longer ones were usually trick shots

    Sighting a Rifle Scope

    Since I shoot a lot of centerfire rifles, .270 and larger, I do not worry about disturbing the rifle between shots or groups, since the recoil does enough of that. I use sand bags or towels (usually bags) to keep the rifle as steady as possible when sighting and squeezing the trigger. It is weird the instructions say to sight in at 33 yards when the scope is a 1/4" adjustment. I sight my rifle in at 25 yards (easy math to adjust the scope) and the zero point comes back around 225 to 250 yards for the centerfire rifles I use (the old Jack O'Conner method). Depending on the average range your boy will be shooting, you may want to sight in a little high if he will be shooting longer ranges. That also depends on the rifle's trajectory.

    Sighting a Rifle Scope

    I make the adjustments without looking through the scope. The biggest thing to remember is what each click of adjustment means. If, 1 full click equals 1" at 100 yards, and you are sighting in at 50 yards, then 1/2 click equals 1". Can you post a picture of the s ope turrent so we can see what it says about its adjustments?

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
