Amen Bear! I've been doing it this way for several years now. The only thing I do different is put the rifle in a gun vise and start out at 100 yds. with my first shot. Make adjustments and shoot two more to verify.
I mount scopes for quite a few folks (mostly the ones that think it's some kind of magic
), and I can tell you there are a few rifles that I wouldn't want to pull the trigger on any more than I absolutely had to.
