Bore sighted the Wolf

Recommended Posts

I’ve done it before in my basement  ,but my vise is pretty close to the wall I use and after watching videos I thought perhaps I’d let a pro do it . These videos guys had barrel scopes, lasers, one guy had 4 brass levels on his gun fancy things with springs and adjustable knobs .

So I went to an old school local,place where I’ve had work done prior, figured he had some of that maybe . He takes the gun sets it on a pile of seat cushions on the glass counter and says “ look through the barrel and center it on the red reflector out there ,now look trough the scope”, high and to the right I say , he uses a quarter to move it, “ how’s that ? ,” height is perfect but needs to go left “, quarter comes back our , “ that’s great I say .”

” Ok now we’ll fine tune it, put the breach plug back and and look through that.” “ ok all,i see through the plug is red , and cross hairs are dead nuts.”

” I can do this in my sleep,now go kill a deer .” 
 

Then I say this ram rod is supposed to except the longer jag at the opposite end but it doesn’t ,he looks “ they never threaded it .”

He looks at the threads on the jag, 10-24 he says then puts rod on lathe and pesto jag screws in to the rod now .

we talked about the sad state of the world , gave him some cash and off I went .

Cant wait to shoot it now !

yea it's not hard to bore sight an inline muzzleloader, AR, or bolt gun. semi-autos like my Remington 742 that don't allow you to see down thru the bore require fancier stuff. all my rifles except 30-30 and 450 are zero'd at 200 yards. with an unsighted rifle I can get onto a vital sized steel gong in 3 shots. fine tune by shooting a group from there.

as long as the circle at the end of the muzzle was centered with the circle of the bore and the reflector in the middle you should be real close.

So this is todays shooting . Since I don’t have much of a solid bench rest I fire several shots for a larger sample size ,before making adjustments. This was about 90 yards . First five low ,adjust ,  next  four up a bit , then adjust fired a single , put red square on that , went back and the last shot is good height wise but a bit to the right .that was enough for today , I don’t enjoy dialing in scopes .

I’ll clean her good and return in a week or so and hopefully all will be inside the nine ring .

So im cleaning it and thinking ,ya another reason I sold mine … 

Then I notice wiggle in the scope , the base is loose so off comes the scope, of the four screws the one nearest the bore is loose and I was able to tighten two others a hair .

So I’m thinking of using a thread locker, maybe red on base and blue on rings ? Or blue all the way around ? , I don’t plan on taking the base off .

Also may explain the left to right spread on my “ grouping “ . So I’ll 

put it together maybe tomorrow or the next day .

Also why I buy plenty of pellets , primers and sabots ,you just don’t know .

 So I’m reading blue or lower ( purple ) on base and none on rings

Blue threadlocker is the way to go. No reason to go with red when blue works perfectly
