I have a friend that has gotten a Remington (not sure of model) 300 win mag from someone. He took it out the other day to sight it in and says that he can't get it even close! He says that he's shooting way too high. He says that the scope (Tasco) will not adjust far enough vertically (down). I had him take off the scope and scope mounts and look closely at the mounts to see if one is a different size than the other. Nope, both the same. He then tells me that he notices now that the back scope mount area is lower compared to the front mount area. He put a small torpedo level (about the size of the scope itself) from the back to the front and it's well over 1/8 of an inch off (too high) He bought the scope mounts from Wal-Mart. I would assume that he's going to have to get special scope mounts?? Ones that have a larger mount in the back than the front? I've just never run across this with my guns before so I'm not exactly sure. I just want to make sure that it isn't a defect in the mfgd of the gun or something..... I've never noticed before but are all guns higher in the front ( where the scope mounts) than the back?
