    Rifle Scopes Nikon owners- what could cause this problem???

    Sigh. My optics saga continues. I just got a new Monarch X 2.5-10x44. I really thought this would be the one. The clicks were very positive, bright optics, etc. Well, just took it out for the first time. It zeroed just fine @100, but when I did a box test, something odd came up- a perfect...

    the BO 20moa base I have for my 700SA LH has an extension that hangs about 1" out over the recoil lug and barrel.

    Advanced Marksmanship When the problem is trigger and not rifle.

    Zero'd my new USO/Horus today, then shot three rapid-fire dot drills of five shots in ten seconds. I find the 3/8 Dot targets are great for zero work - I thought I had to adjust one more tenth of right windage, but the dots told me I have trigger issues with my third and fourth shots in a string:

    I took my rifle apart today because I thought the accuracy had diminished (but still pretty good). I noticed that the rear screw hole was cracked right down the middle of the rifle from the magazine well back to the trigger area and it’s all the way through. I guess I had over tightened the...

    I went to the range today with my SPS .308. It is in a B&C stock and otherwise stock. I noticed that some of my groups were on the large side but others were damn near all in the same hole. The groups tended to have some in one area and other in another small area. I started looking when I...
