YEEHA ZEROED IN BOYS, Ready to go friday. I'm going nutz counting down the days. I finally got my scope hitting nice 1/2in groups right above the bully. 8 shots almost on top of eachother at about 100yrds maybe 90 cause the pit ends but I think shes ready. I can always make adjustsments off that when Im in the field, atleast I know I'm good to 100.
I love the scope, and I know what you mean saskie this was the last one the guy had in the 6-18x50. He had tonnes of 3-9x40 and 3-9x50's but I wanted this particular scope.I had tryed one out last year and thought it was amazing and the DD feature allowed ample light for the conditions I get stuck sometimes hunting in. If I met someone and they asked me how the scope was I would just let them try mine and they could tell me.
Have used Bushnell Banner Scopes for years and have not had a bad one yet, have 2 Dusk to Dawn, one 3x9x56mm and a 6x24x50mm and both work great. have one on a 270 and the other on a 243, they get the job done at a reasonable price.
First make sure your gun is safe, remove the bolt and clean your barrel from the chamber to the end of muzzle. Clean the barrel using butchers bore shine until a patch comes out white. Run a total of 5 separate patches soaked with denatured alcohol through the bore and let dry for 30 minutes. Insert a cleaning rod with a jag and a dry patch into the neck of the chamber. Make sure it will stay there through the next process. Now using another cleaning rod, install a patch that has been coated...
