Today was the 2nd terrible day at the range. With the exception of exploding in my face, I think everything that could go wrong did go wrong. .458 Socom range day 1… The rounds didn’t fit into the gun, the bolt didn’t close all the way. (how can we forget) Range Day 2… My ammo fits and the gun fires. I started sighting in the rifle at 25 yards. Looked good. I took it out to 100 yards – Couldn’t hit the paper at all. Had the RO with me spotting where it hit the dirt to see if we could adjust it back to the paper. Brought it back to 50 yards to try to get it on the paper to adjust. Couldn’t put it on the paper. Found out that the scope mount was loose. So made some critical hardware adjustments and then tried again. Couldn’t find the paper! Went back to the 25 yard line. Couldn’t find the paper at TWENTY-FIVE YARDS!!! So I started shooting the corners of the paper to try to find where my rounds were going. NOTHING! GAAAA!!! Last shot of the day before I kick this thing to the curb… BLAM! The cross hairs broke! I didn’t know that the shock of a round could break cross hairs. I guess good scopes are quite necessary. Some 41 rounds were spent ($3.50 each ish) and I still have a gun that’s not sighted in! and the best picture, I took it apart Now I need real advice on a 4 power to 10 power scope. One that’ll stand up to the shock of the .458 410 grain Socom. Ideas? ~ or ~ Am I cursed and need to give up now?
