Re: Help zeroing

Somethings not quite right. Try laying the rifle on its side and putting a level on the side of the receiver. After you have it set up good and level put the level on the side of the scope, the side of the rings may have to suffice and will do the same. If it is perfectly level with the action then there is something wrong with the scope. If it is not level remove the scope and try the same process on the base. This probably isn't the most accurate method but will quickly tell you if there is a problem.
