    Just wondering if anyone can give me some pointers.
    I got a Savage FCP K and a Redfield Revolution 3X9X50

    I got my rifle and scope bore sighted in at 25 yards at Academy. I brought one of the cartridges that go into the barrel.

    I took it to the range and was not close at all to the target. I was shooting very high. I could not adjust my MOA enough to get on paper.
    I had the scope on a 10/22 for a while and it worked fine on there. I brought the rifle used from Gunbroker.
    I just dont understand how off I am. I can swap out the scopes with the one on my brothers rifle. I wonder if my barrel is bent but not sure i can tell if it is or not.

    Way out here
    Sounds to me like the scope is not mounted properly, though it's hard to tell from here.

    I sure as hell wouldn't assume that just because some $7/hr clown from Academy installed it for you means it's been done correctly. Some of those guys couldn't shoot themselves out of a wet paper bag.

    What mounts and rings are you using? How far away was the target? Are you sure you were adjusting the scope the right way? Pictures if possible of the mount would help.

    Are you going out to a range anytime soon. Perhaps you could go meet up with another member here that could help you out if they are going out as well.

    What range do you shoot at?

    Sorry it took so long to reply but my house got broken into today. I cant stand thieves.

    The rail that I have is a Redfield 20 MOA base and the rings are the leupold short rings.
    I Usually go to a place to shoot.

    Dumb question but I gotta ask.


    Are you sure you are turning the elevation adjustment the right way?
