When at the range doing final sighting in I use a rifle rest. The one I use is made by TargetShooting.com!! I have the Model 1000. I also got the bull vise, front sand bag, and rear fine tuning set up. This is a pretty nice rifle rest / gun vise. This rifle rest saves alot of ammo when sighting in.
Yeah, those two things combined are about $700....WAY out of my price range. Thanks, though, I'd love to have them.

And so it shall be. Just ordered from Cabela's. Thanks for your help, guys.

Lony man up, improvise and use some old fashion field sighting if you don't have a range table, and these all work well in your BOB bag too.

How did I miss this thread??

You don't need a damn bore, laser, sighting thingy.

As evidenced earlier, people were sighting in rifles LONG before lasers came around.

Now, if you want serious attention to detail and want to be able to get ANY rifle on paper with one shot, here is what you want. It's called a Collimator, and it will get any rifle on paper at 100, or further, if you can do some basic math.

Default Bore sight

Yes I half to say that the bore sight save me a lot of ammo. I got mine at bass pro shop in md.It is a Laserlyte works with everything but 17 hmr. It usally gets me within about 1" or 1 1/2" to center so it is a good idea.

Yeah, I have a Leupold collimator as well. It's just that with some of the muzzel breaks and flash hiders that a laser bore sighter works a little easier.

Not to mention if you have an A1/A2 front sight, the collimators don't work too well either

Remove the upper and bolt carrier and prop it up on a table.
Done deal, and it's FREE.
+2 I do this as well.
Remove bolt, sandbag with center of bull in center of bore, adjust recticle to center bull.
I fire one shot at 25yards. Reset rifle in bags and move dot/recticle to cover the bullet hole. Move to 100yds and fine tune.

Its quick, easy, and free-------Gate
