I have a Docter unipoint fitted to my Sako 75 .243 with optilock mounts (admittedly both scope and mounts are second hand) After initial zeroing have shot 9 deer all at fairly close range 50 - 120yds. The last one bullet hit much higher than expected and clipped the spine, deer went down but I was concerned. So at the weekend went to check the zero and it was shooting all over the place, very inconsistant in a 6" area.
I think the scope is good and the only thing I'm not happy about is the optilock bases.
The front base I can push right up tight on the taper but the rear base has a peg that lockates on the action but does not alow the taper do anything at all and therefore it relies on the small clamp to hold it on the right hand side and the base itself is not in contact with the dovetail at all on this righthand side. Can this be right or is this a rear base for a different action? Do they differ?
Any advice much appreciated.
