    Rifle Scopes Parallax Problem - Excited then disappointed - Vortex Viper PST FFP 6-24x50mm

    I was looking around online and the torque wrench I bought awhile back was one of those cheap Harbor Freight ones that you unscrew on the bottom and then turn for the right torque setting (1st one i've ever used as well) Well I just never felt right about the settings on those so I went ahead...

    Rifle Scopes Parallax Problem - Excited then disappointed - Vortex Viper PST FFP 6-24x50mm

    I actually went ahead and tested it before I boxed it up. I think they say something like.. "Great minds think..." ;) It does it as well. I even used only 20in/lbs of torque to prevent any dmg to the scope when mounted as well so I doubt it could be from the pressure from the mounts...

    Rifle Scopes Parallax Problem - Excited then disappointed - Vortex Viper PST FFP 6-24x50mm

    Awesome. Appreciate it. Yeah, i've installed a few scopes but never really thought much into it. I have always tried to follow torque specs though. Thanks for all the feedback. It'll help once I get my replacement.

    Rifle Scopes Parallax Problem - Excited then disappointed - Vortex Viper PST FFP 6-24x50mm

    I'm assuming the Parallax setting it held within the ball (bell housing I guess you call it) where the turrets are. I had a 2 piece remington 700 base which forced me to put my front ring closer to the turrets. I guess I'll switch back over to my single piece weaver rail. Thanks for the heads...

    Rifle Scopes Parallax Problem - Excited then disappointed - Vortex Viper PST FFP 6-24x50mm

    Yeah, I was just looking at Opticsplanet.com and I am going to do a return/exchange. I've never used them before and some places make you pay for turn shipping. I'm impressed with their return RMA process online and the fact it automatically gives you a return shipping label when you finish.

    Rifle Scopes Parallax Problem - Excited then disappointed - Vortex Viper PST FFP 6-24x50mm

    I finally received my scope (after my other order for the EBR-2C was canceled). I went ahead and ordered the MRAD EBR-1 style since there was no backorder. Well I got it today and I mounted it. Very carefully and 25in/lbs as recommended by warne. I leveled it with several different methods and...

    precision rifles... show em

    20" Rem 700 AAC-SD .308 Optics: Burris MTAC 4.5-14x-42mm w/ 30mm WARNE Maxima Fixed Rings A little bit of shaving off the front of the junk hogue stock allowed it to be truly free-floated. Added a bit of McNett Camo Form Multicam to my scope.

    Rifle Scopes Reticle/Turret Alignment + Base leveling

    I appreciate your guys help. I might have to get up you guys (Ryan and Jamie) at some point to go shooting. Hard to find people to go with. This is what I ended up doing. I went ahead and used small levels and leveled everything up with the Action and the base to the top of the reticle windage...

    Rifle Scopes Reticle/Turret Alignment + Base leveling

    I appreciate the help. Reading your post makes a bit more sense to me for testing the possibility of it being off. Should I scrap the idea of doing it with a bob and line and light and just try to level using level on the turret & base rail and test it out? For reference I own a Rem 700 308...

    Rifle Scopes Reticle/Turret Alignment + Base leveling

    I had a question about adjusting the zero/level/alignment of the scope reticle to the action. I have tried searching but it has been vague in answers. I have a Burris MTAC 4.5-14x-42mm scope. I am going with a solution I am able to do at home inexpensively. (I may change my mind and go to a...

    Rifle Scopes A little advise about my optics/shooting today!

    The scope is a bit odd.. There are "painted dashes/marks" & the "wording" for the eyepieces and the paralax adjustment but they are not center with the adjustment knob on top. From what I thought you would typically use a level on the top of the knob. I have the gun level with the knob but it...

    Rifle Scopes A little advise about my optics/shooting today!

    I just want to say Hello to everyone! I am excited to be joining Sniper's Hide and look fwd to a lot of great reads. I went shooting with my father-in-law today. We set up a 130yrd range (130yrd is what we measured this barrel thing at so it ended up there and not @100yrds) Background...
