Could NOT get the scope sighted in, went through 120 freakin rounds!!!! While shooting, I tested the back screw and it was tight, so like an idiot, I I ASSumed the front was as well.......while I was leaving, I was putting it in the case and noticed the front was moving....:mad::mad::mad:

That sucks! On the bright side, it could have been and AR-10 you were wasting boom-boom-pills on.:D

LOL! Got one question for ya though, ONE round, was the last in the mag, sounded much lower when it went off. Felt like it was much stronger too, but it was the 5.56 that came with the rest. American Eagle target rounds.

Very VERY true sir. Now I know what to do to get it to work next time.

may I suggest getting a cheap bore sight, got one for my 7mm mag, used it to zero in at 50yrds before I went out took me 3 min to get it zeroed at 175yrds.

I took the .300 Blackout to the range for its maiden voyage and had a similar experience. I "fabricated" my own ring spacers for the 3x9 optic since the rings I had lying around were to large.

It wasn't even on paper to start. When it finally got on paper it wouldn't stay. Long story short I burnt through a crap ton of ammo to find out the optic was sliding backward w/ each pull of the trigger.

At $15 an hour for range fees (indoor 100yds) and after burning through extremely hard to find custom ammo, I called it a day.

I feel your pain.

It does function great though.

Frustrating, I'm sure. But just another good excuse to go to the range again real soon!

Beautiful gun.
