I have a brand new Ruger 10/22 Target Tactical which arrived last week.
It has an ATEC mod and factory heavy barrell.
6-24 x44 Hawke vantage scope and came with cheap hawke mounts - replaced with Leupold straight away onto a factory weaver rail.
So i am 50% happy, it groups, shoots straight but will not zero. there seems to be a massive mis-alignment. At 30m it will shoot almost on target (1 inch low) with scope hooched right up and rear ring shimmed with 2 bits of credit card style plastic. This is no good, i want to zero at 50m and be able to shoot at 100m with scope clicks.
Unacceptable, but before it gets returned, any ideas? I have read on US .22 forums about barrel droop.
