Range time

Range time

Got out to the range this weekend. Obviously it's been too long. This is my Rem 750 .30-06. Care to guess what I was doing wrong? I realized after the fact and had a facepalm moment.

wrong

Too right. You must rezeroed scope. Group is OK, but at wrong place

Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

How are you doing? That's what I was thinking at first too. I fired the 3 rounds and all were right, so I adjusted my scope and fired a few more. Even further right. I realized I turned the dial the wrong way, so I adjusted again the other direction (double, of course, to correct the previous adjustment) and got in the target. So I fired a few more, and they were drifting and all over. I started getting frustrated. I was beginning to think the scope rings and/or mount loosened up.
But on the drive home I had a sudden epiphany. It was a very windy day. Guess which direction the wind was blowing? I didn't even think about it when I was shooting. Very embarrassing.

.

First, tighten all screws on mount. Then use shot saver ( i have and use TASCO shot saver more than 30 years).
Your caliber, then insert spring end of stud with shot saver attached, into muzzle of rifle until shot saver comes in contact with end of the muzzle.

Look trough your rifle scope into shot saver and check the scope reticle with the center crosshair on the grid squares of the shot saver.
Adjust windage and elevation adjustments so that the reticle in your rifle scope lines up perfectly with the center crosshair of the grid squares. Each grid square equals 4 inches or about 16 clicks at 100 yards
This adjustments does not necessarily mean that you will be directly in the center of the bullseye or target, but your shots will be on target and with a few minor windage and elevation adjustments, your shots will be where you want them. This means less time in zeroing in and less money spent on ammunition.

Wind

Wind my nemises. Been there and cranked myself all over the target. I checked the muzzle brake rings , mount , bullet centricity, bipod , cheek piece... Finally had to admit it was me.

Which way are my people going? I have to lead them there!

I was going to say,

maybe that your stance was different then the last time you zeroed it but you already answered it
