How about a scope with 2.5mm per click @100m to really give your brain a proper workout
Do you mean 1/10 MOA adjustments or 0.025 mil adjustments. My NF comp is in 1/8 MOA and yes the 0.1 mil is a bit big really but smaller is a brain fart.
Not really sure how to do a box test. Will look into it and try it out soon.
Well i’m only a hunter and pest shooter ,I have a Swarovski z3 with etched reticle on my 7mag and a ziess on my 22-250 it would be hard to find a difference between either they both have v’good glass so i’d say both are my besties i’d buy either one for a spare scope
@Field_Marshal_Cinque The easiest way to describe it is to setup a target at 50m and zero your scope so that all of the shots hit the middle of the target. Replace that target with a new one and fire 5 shots into the bull.
Then adjust your scope down 10 clicks and right 10 clicks, fire 5 rounds.
Then go up 20 clicks and fire 5 rounds.
Then 20 clicks to the left and fire 5 rounds.
Then go down 20 clicks and fire 5 rounds.
Then go 10 clicks to the right and up 10 clicks and fire 5 rounds. If the scope is good the last 5 rounds should hit in the bull and your zero will be right back to where it was at the start.
This is the basic explanation, watch the below clip for a better one. Starts at 7.00 minutes.
Each time you fire 5 rounds keep aiming at the center.
Finally got out and did a box test with the Vortex Diamondback tactical. Set the target up at 50 metres followed @1Fatman s instructions. Here are the results
There was a orange sticker in the middle of the target but it fell off. 5 shots on each corner and 10 in the middle. Not the best shooting on my part but it seems to go back to zero. I did the test twice and got pretty similar results.
Good to see it worked out well.
I will be sighting mine in tomorrow at the range after the comp and if I get time will do the box test as well.
Doesn’t look too bad at all. Better than the results on mine.
Looking at that target either the scope isn’t level or you didn’t level the rifle…
Thanks @Brett will check it out. Could it be that the target and bench were not straight either?
Yeah most likely the target is not level. The main reason I like to shoot round targets I never take a level out to the paddock to level a target then the lines on the target also get confusing in relation to the scope reticle which will be level.
When you leveled the scope did you eyeball it from the shoulder? This would explain the clockwise skew of the groups if then shot off a rest or bipod. Doesn’t matter a rats ass if used at hunting distances but becomes more critical as distance increases. Looks like the scope is tracking well and the distances are similar so job well done
I levelled it up but looks like I may need to have another go at it.
