    Bore sighting means u place a bore sighter into the rifles barrel look through a scope line the crosshairs up in the grid but since u havent done this go to yer local gun shop an have them do it but also have them explain the proces as they bore sight it so u have a solid idea how to perform the task in the future so in a nut shell u are settin the scope to hit the target at 25 yards within the target ot wont be dead on then once u move the left right an up or down to hit the bulls eye u then need to set the new target to 100 yards to get the proper zero for yer rifle what is the caliber I will help u srt it to the right hight at 100 yards

    I'm kinda worried about the savage tho the firing pin sounds a bit light when dry fired :/ does anyone else own one and could confirm that with a light dry fire noise does it still strike and fire?

    Dry fried it once to see if it clicked because I had a bad outcome with a brand new rifle out of the box and I didn't dry fire it and well no click no refund could have had just as much fun throwing the money at the wife

    bore sighting is simply looking down the bore with the bolt removed lining it up on a target then adjusting the scope or sights to match. there are bore sighting tools but i find them less than useful.

    dry firing wont hurt it one bit.

    but my savage model 10 had a very light strike problem. had to get a new firing pin spring. if there is one issue that savages seem to have its too light of a firing pin spring.

    diy a firing pin spring swap on a savage bolt isnt easy

    Regardless of what you think, repeatedly dry firing a weapon can and WILL cause problems. Firing once or twice while empty shouldn't hurt, but don't do it every time you pick the rifle up ;)

    As forBore-Sighting, it is an extremely effective and accurate method for sighting a rifle at reasonable distances. As it doesn't seem that you are very easier with weapons, let alone sighting and firing, you should probably take the advice offered you and go with Bore-Sighting. Removing the bolt and looking down the barrel is a rather unreliable method as it can leave you multiple inches off target.

    Just go to Wal Mart and spend 30 bucks for a cheap bore sighting kit; you'll be glad that you did, I guarantee you. And quit dry firing that rifle unless you want trouble with it after a while ;)
