I just got back from the range shooting my Weatherby Mark V Accumark in .340 Wby (to get ready for a fll brown bear hunt). It has a new Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5-16x-50mm scope on it.
The combination worked great, and I got several group at 50 yds (the longest at the NRA range) where the holes are all touching.
After sighting in the scope, I changed the windage and elevation to 0 by lifting up the dials and moving them to 0 and then releasing them. This worked perfectly with the elevation knob, but when I released the windage knob, it did not go back down. As I gently played with it, it would not either pull out or go down at all. I then used a fiar amount of force to see ifi it would pull out again, but it would not do so. The way it is now, it wonít pull out or push in, and it clicks and changes the windage when turned (I checked it out by moving the windage knob and shooting it, and the point of impact moved as expected).
Does anyone know if there is a simple solution to this problem that I canít figure out, or is the knob somehow broken.
I have another 6500 on my Sage M1A, but I would rather not have to swap them out and send back the one on the Wby, as I would then have to sight in everything again--but I will if I have to.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
