    Just came from El Toro's house...as he showed me how to mount the bases rings & scope on the Model 70, .300 win mag I bought a few months ago.

    Since he has a bore scope he got it close, but needs to be sighted in still....which means I'm ready to put some rounds down range.

    Let me know when & where...& needs to be an actual range so I can get it sight in...After that I'll go anywhere to shoot.

    Thanks again Nate for the help picking out the gun & all the toys to go with it.

    J,
    go back over all the ring screws and the big windage screws that hold the rear ring into the base. Just make sure they are good and tight. I can't remember if I torqued those down real tight. i know the bases are super tight.

    I also just remembered that I recently put a new scope on my .243 so i need to get it dialed in. Maybe an afternoon next week.

    What kind of mounts Brant? I've got Leupold rings & mounts on 5 rifles and have put them on at least 10 others. Never seen one fail.

    If you're sighting in at over 100 yards, then the South Bay Rod & Gun club range in Dulzura is your best bet. They run out to 300'.

    I like the SD County Fish & Game range out by Singing Hills -- they have an indoor 100 yard range (as well as shorter ranges...)

    As a matter of fact I'm going to the SDF&G range Friday morning to sight in my .270 and punch some paper with my CZ 452 .22lr (trying to see if I can get a half inch group at 100 yards with the .22.)

    Regards,

    they're actually weatherby scope mounts. I need to special order them tomorrow. I think they're the only ones that fit a weatherby.

    If its a Mark V, Leupold makes mounts for it. I used to have one and I put Leopolds on it.

    just looked at my mark V with a nikon scope. they do look peculiar. i'm guessing they're specific to a weatherby.

    J,
    did you double check those screws? Make sure they're torqued down real good.
