I may or may not have stumbled on a mine field here. ?!
I recently bought a Zeiss Victory 6- 24 x 72 mm. as I have a Mannlicher 7mm 08 i was advised to get EAW mounts, apparently they are one of the few who can produce mounts to marry the two up perfectly.
Anyway had it all fitted by the gunsmith and went to the range. WOW after two shots i ran out of left hand windage. Which meant a return to the gunsmith. FIXED (they had not set it up 100%)
Back to the range and there was no consistency flyers everywhere. I was soooo frustrated I decided to take the scope off - its on the EAW pivot mounts which are supposed to hold the zero.
I noticed a glue like substance round the edge of the bases so I removed the based from the rifle and cleaned them all up of the flaky glue - should the glue have been there???
also reading various things on the net - it suggests you should remove the bluing from the base of the bases etc. Should I take the rings off the scope aswell ??
The question I have is - is there an expert out there than can talk me through what todo...
