    That comment reminds me of the very first registered match i ever shot in, almost twenty years ago.I finished 3rd out 30+ shooters in the first yardage. Some of the best shooters in the Region were present. I shared a bench with a left hander. He set his flags up on the left side of the bench. not really being aware of good Benchrest etiquette, I set mine up on the right side of the bench. (Information Overload,too many wind flags) I had very limited skills at gun handling or reading wind flags.

    Yes,Good things happen, when you have a Rifle that shoots. Been there done that. Finding the right combination for a Rifle is easier said than done.

    Try loading the erector and see if that helps. For example, if you need to go up 6 clicks, go up 10 and back down 4.

    Don't change power when doing this, if only obviously..... -Al

    If the p.o.i. is correct after the elevation test, you can go on to the power change testing. Leaving the elevation alone, see if changing power causes a p.o.i. change. If so, there's a lens alignment issue.

    On BR guns, there's not a lot of elevation/windage changes that happen, given the complete range of the w/e available. It's always best to have the scopes w/e adjustment as close to centered as possible for a 'zero' at your target distance. If the scope is already in the rings with the w/e at the outer limits of their adjustment range to get an on-target 'zero', things can get pretty herky......

    Good shootin'. -Al
