Big boys toy arrived yesterday (Tikka 658 300WM) and I strapped on a S&B 3-12x44 I had put aside for a quick zeroing session.
Borescoped and all looking good
First shot, right elevation, off to the left by 4", took a second look through the scope and:
permission to say "cock"!!
apparently the moderator makes the effect of the recoil worse on scopes according to McLeods!
luckily the scope is of the vintage where they come with a 30 year warranty not a 10 year one
so who has a scope they want to sell, lend or give to me for some stag bashing in 2 weeks time?!
