This is a new one to me, I bought my wife a youth .243 Rem 700, and put a Leup VX3 2x8 on it. We took it out today and tried to get it sighted at 50 yds to start. I could only get to within 6" of the grouping. It keeps shooting 6" left before I run out of windage adjustment. The mounts are all sturdy and tight. I talked to a fellow shooter at the range and he suggested that the base screw holes may be off center? I'm not saying it's not, but this is odd to me on a factory machined rifle. Has anyone seen similar problems or maybe suggest something else. I will remount the scope to make sure all is good in the morning and then bore sight it. Still seems strange to me??
Any help appreciated!
