Thread: Has my scope / Mounts died?

    Question Has my scope / Mounts died?

    Hi

    I am going through the journey of starting out and learning lots of lessons on the way...

    I have been out stalking today and noticed all of the sudden I can see the end of my barrels/mod through the scope.
    It has never been like this either at the range/or in the field and just happened today.
    I have read this is common on low mag.

    Any suggestions? , i've checked mounts all tight.

    Scope Leupold VXR 3-9x40

    Cheers

    It's probably always been like that but you've never noticed until you've used it a few times, I have the same thing with the atec mod on my blaser. The scope is mounted very low on mine but it shoots sub moa. If yours is shooting straight still I wouldn't worry about it unless it's really annoying you

    I can see my iron sight through the scope at low mag as well. As have been said, if it shoots straight i wouldn't worry.

    Is it on 3x and does the "problem" go away when you zoom up?

    Possibly, I have never noticed it up the range before.
    Funny you mention I have a Atec mod on the rifle, I will put some rounds through it this week and see how its shooting.

    probably because you've never looked through it at 3x before

    There are two types of shooters - the fulfilled and successful ones - with a 7 X 57 and those poor souls who have not yet decided to get one!

    I have an old Nickel Marburg 1-4 x20 scope. on 1 to 2 power there is black semi circle covering the bottom of the sight picture so that you can't see the foresight and barrel.
