Got permission from the local farmer to use his field today to sight in my Model 70 300 WSM. Just got a new
Leupold VXIII 3.5x10-40 Boone and Crockett reticle. I bore sighted it yesterday with the bolt removed and the crosshairs were good left to right windage, but the elevation was way off and I had to crank the elevation a few go rounds. My first round today was at 60 yds to get close and I hit the 1" black dot! I instantly moved to 100 yds and I was about 1 1/2" to the left and about 1/2" low. I adjusted the windage and attempted to adjust the elevation and all I got out of her was 2 clicks, so 1/2" and it was bottomed out, no more adjustment left. I shot 3 rounds and they were all dead bull. I shot at 170 yds and I was dead on too, farthest I could get out there with the hay height. I'm currently shooting 180 gr power point Winchester factory loads. What's my options here, shim kit? Send back to Leupold, lighter flatter bullet? I'm getting into reloading and was wanting to shoot 190 Bergers, just afraid that I'm gonna need some elevation adjustment that I don't have. Any ideas, remedies?
