    Maybe a no brainer or maybe a dumb question but if you are sighting in a firearm at 100yds or any distance for that matter using a variable powered scope, does it matter what power the scope is set too when you are sighting in? I would think it doesn' t matter but I have to settle a dispute...

    I wanted to see how others sight in there rifles, there are a couple ways but everyone has their way I'am wondering what's the easy way & less ammo sight in. Here how I do it I sighted in a 270(130gr) & 30-06(150gr) bolt actions rifles. I setup my table with vise and sand bags at 25yrds from...
  4. Shotguns
    What do you guys do? Do you use shot or slugs? What distance is good? I'm assuming slugs on a bench at relatively close distance (10 yards?) but really have no clue.

    Ok need some help from you 1911 guys/gals out there.. I will try to explain this the best I can,I went to the range with my landlord to shoot my Sig Sauer 1911 and a couple other firearms so we started with my 1911 and for some odd reason we could not hit the center bulls eye the pistol kept...
  7. The AR-15
    Am I correct that if I sight my scope in at 50 yards I will be approx 1 - 1.5 inches high at 100 yards and almost on point at 200 yards? Is it right that point of impact almost the same for 50 yards and 200 yards? If I sight in at 100 yards how high/low will POI be at 200 yards and 50 yards...

    Hello all I hope this is the correct place to ask some questions on sighting in my Rifles and Pistols.. Since I am basically starting over and getting back into firearms and it has been a long time since I have been to a shooting range what is the best way that you all start at when it comes...
  10. Long Range Precision Shooting
    I brought a friend of mine out to sight in his new slug gun for hunting season and ran into a big problem, even with the elevation set to bring the crosshair as low as possible the gun is still firing about 3 feet high at 50 yards. Has anyone else experienced the same kind of problem? It doesn't...
  11. Shotguns
    So, last year after deer season I bought my girlfriend a 20ga 870 with bird and rifled slug barrels. I tried sighting in the rifled barrel soon after we got it with no luck. Four different types of ammo and it would not group. Every time I changed the sights it would get all screwy not tracking...

    Saw one at the rochester Dicks today for $350. Totally slick, should have walked out with it. Lol
  13. Long Range Precision Shooting
    So I realized today as I was out shooting my new .22 again. that each time i go out i end up fiddling with the sight adjustments.. now granted most of the fun for me is too shoot a bit then walk to target and see where i hit and make adjustments So i have some questions... I tried the...

    Recently I had the opportunity to pick up a Century WASR-10/63. My first AK!! So, I'll admit that it was a complete impulse purchase and I hadn't researched much prior to buying, but it seemed like a decent deal so I jumped on it! Anyways, after bringing the gun home and reading a bit online, I...
  15. The AR-15
    Had a heck of a time sighting in my Red Dot sight on the AR yesterday. Just using sand bags I was able to get it close @ 25/50 yards. When I moved the target out to 100 I could barely even get a shot on paper. Any tips would be appreciated. I was contemplating picking up a led sled or similiar...
  16. Shotguns
    I had a fiber optic front sight and a ghost ring rear sight installed on my Mossberg 500. Hope this helps my USPSA and IDPA side shoot scores. My question is, how to I sight it in? The gun smith said he bore sighted it. Is this sufficient given the close ranges of side shoots? If not what...
