Zeroed my new .270 today starting at 50m and then out to 100m. All Ok then decide to see where it hits at 200m. Much to my surprise suddenly find the two shots taken are 6" high.
Does not make sense, should be low if anything. Decide to try again off a more solid bench rest to remove operator error and then discover my mod has come slightly loose when the first bullets miss the target altogether. Quickly tighten up mod and problem solved.
They say you learn something new everyday and this has certainly reminded me to check that my mod is always screwed up tightly.
Which leads me to wonder.... how often this has happened to other hunters when they miss by a mile and then worry unnecessarily about their rifle being out of zero???
