Got the scope bore sighted today. Got it home and set it on the bipod and looked through. Damn thing was crooked. Ugh. I straightened it now I'm sure it messed with the bore sight a little bit, but am gonna zero it tomorrow.

Id try shooting it at 50 yards first. Always do that if your bore sighting. Cuz at 100 yards god only knows where itll poi at.

God didnt make all men equal colonel sam colt did

I can't quit pointing this thing out my window. I'm pretty sure I'll go with this scope for my AR build as well. I went to the range yesterday, to zero the scope, and I found out its only open Saturday and Sunday. Wtf? We usually head to the river bar, but in this case I'd rather know how far I'm actually shooting and put it on paper. As a joke, the GF got me zombie targets. If I have a good enough group when I'm done, I may frame the thing
