I think that the problem is in your method.First
, you should have more than one shot
before you make a decision to adjust sights. Seldom do we shoot as accurately as we would like to believe. Mutliple shots tend to 'average' this error to something that you can work with. One shot is not sufficient.Second
, try 25 yards
or less if possible to get poa near poi. 10" at 100 yd's can miss the paper, at 25 yard's the moa's bring you to about 2.5".Third
, Ensure you understand your sight adjustment
: Screw Rotation equates to Direction of impact and MOA. If you cannot find good information, spend some 'thinking' time and document it. It's easy to get confused if you shoot, adjust, shoot, adjust. Know what your screw movement will do.Fourth
. As noted above, keep some notes on poa, poi (save your targets and identify them to your notebook notes) keep notes
on what direction and how much you turned your sights.
You will usually find that the gross error is the result of human factor.Fifth
: Once you think your are on, then you can try different ammo to improve your groups.
