View Full Version : Any Rifle Gurus Here?

I have a new scope coming for my muzzleloader and want to hear how you make sure your scope is mounted properly. I have read articles but curious to hear from the "good folk" :D
Take your time, stagger tighten (lug nut style), level your crosshairs, check your field of view and you should be good to go! Mounting a scope isn't too terrible. I've mounted all my varmint rifles myself using this same method.
A little trick: Use a piece of scotch tape in the "U" of your base before putting in your scope. It will help with scope marring, and the slip factor.
Hope this helps. If it's too vague, shoot me a PM and a phone number, and I'd be glad to give you a call!

Extremist is a gunsmith, he may be able to give you some pointers.
L-train, I think microwave season starts after Christmas, refrigerator season is first, with car door season in the spring.

I have mounted alot of scopes in my years but wanted to see if someone had any secret tips and also post something that someone who is too shy to ask may benefit from as well.
CamG, that scotch tape is new to me, so thanx :)

Try putting some baby powder on the surface of the rings. Also when setting up the scope before tightening the rings...hold the rifle as if your shooting it offhand with eyes closed and open to see when your eye relief is on the middle magnification. Move accordingly. The point is not to move your head to get a comfortable sight picture, but move the scope.
