Boresight a Ruger 10-22
 
What is the best tool but cheap, for boresighting a Ruger 10-22? Laser, magnetic etc. Thanks Gunny

Gunny, how about stopping by the introductions thread and telling us a little about yourself?

That being said, we have a green laser boresighter that you place into the end of the barrel. It is easy to use, will function will most calibers, and works very well, especially if you are trying to sight in with a red reticled sight.

Will do! Where do I get the laser? Thanks Gunny

For the least expensive tool a collometer fits the bill. This is the one I use

For a laser boresighter, which a good one will be costly and a cheap one isn't worth a damn, I use a SiteLite SL500

I must add that all any of these boresighters will do is get you "on paper". You'll have to still adjust scope/sights to totally zero on target at the shooting range.

I don't really like boresighters. If you can't get zeroed without using a boresighter, then you won't be able to zero for any other range other than what you're boresighted for. Save your money.

I'd learn how to zero your gun. What I do is zero for something close, like 50 feet, and then work my way out to my desired zero.

Just my 2

I don't understand. Once the rifle is zeroed in, whether you use a boresighter or not, it stays zeroed, provided you have a good base, rings, and a properly installed scope, regardless of where you take it after that. Am I missing something? :confused:

Well, to be totally honest, I'll have to say that my laser bore sighter has become more of a novelty item for me. However, I do use the little attachment to make a horizintal or verticle line on the little target that has a level on it that came with my boresighter in conjunction with that Level, Level, Level kit when I remove and replace the scopes on my rifles. Using it this way is just sort of a backup verification for my process of leveling my scopes. Even for that I dont really need it.

Now theres my 2 cents worth.

Actually, same here :o...but that was not my question to the previous poster.

With my bolt actions, I'll just go the old-fashioned way of removing the bolt and sighting down the bore until I get on paper and that usually gets me on paper at fifty yards, and then I move the target out gradually.

At least with the cheap laser boresighter I have.....you can't see the darned laser dot past fifty yards......especially in daylight...and with my 12 year-old Lasik that seems to be wearing off!
