If I didn't have bad luck today I wouldn't have any luck at all it seems I had a brand new scope to try out well it's no good as I was sighting it in and it needed moving 3" so I moved it 10 clicks and it only moved the POI 1" that was the second time I had tried moving the POI so the adjuster had been moved 20 clicks for a 1" movement so it's obviously no damned good.
So I got the 7x57 out to check it's still on, thought I would use the Bi-Pod I brought from David first shot was 1" high like it should have been next one was a bit left then they started to wander a bit. Hmmmm I picked the rifle up to find the Bi-Pod was loose went to tighten it and found it had pulled the short stud out of the wood I have to drive 60 miles to get a machine screw stud and ferrule then take the stock off and inlet the ferrule to clear the barrel then load a few replacment rounds and re-test.
So I thought I would test the 30-06 with the 130 grain loads so took the P-H 1100 out and it was a little off to he left. Not surprised as it was sighted in for 165 grain bullets. So shot for a group and they walked a bit left. Adjusted it 1" to the right and fired again at a new aiming point on the target. Impact 1" high and central so fired another which went right onto the left hand point of the 2" diamond aiming mark third hit the right hand point ................... what the? Checked nothing was loose then fired #4 and it hit the botton point it was then I noticed that the reticle was not as sharpas it should be. Yep you guesses the fast focus eye piece has developed play so this one needs to go to the scope man for repair and service Of course that's the only 30mm tube scope I have so I cannot even rob a scope from an unused rifle.
Looks like I will have to take the Lisenfeld 3-9x42 off the CF2 Stutzen to put on the Majestic and get the 30-06 swopped on the licence for the .308 1100 Lwt. I wonder how long they will take to do a variation .................. not by next week I'll bet .
