just read a clip in shooting times about how to check telescopic sights are vertical and in line with the rifles bore. ive always set the rifle as level as i can and put up a plumb line or used a know upright to check the scope is vertical.
well the wife is out so i thought i would have a play with the air rifle. i followed the instuctions in the artical and it turns out that my scope appears to not be vertical
the instuctions were. at 50 yards. take a three shot group. adjust scope to shoot 2 inch high. take 3 shots. adjust 2 inch right. take 3 shot group. adjust 2 inch down. take 3 shot group. adjust 2 inch left take a 3 shot group.
well i can only shoot 18 yards in the garden and adjusted by 20 clicks but ive ended up with a square of sorts. the fact is its not quite square. so which way do i move my scope to level it or which way do you guys check your scope set up
as you can see started bottom left corner. adjust up and it seems straight. adjust right and it rises slightly. adjust down it moves right slightly. adjust left back to the start and it comes down. pleased with the six shot group though
