man you got it going on for sure between this and your bolt gun. just curious, when you get a tight group like that, and it's a little off the bull, do you adjust your scope or do you just leave it like that? and yes, i completely understand you're dropping a deer with any shot in that group. more of a shooting question than hunting i guess.

Good observation . It was hard for me to believe it myself but the entire scope is perfectly clear without any of the front sight showing in the scope at all. yet if you look at it , It should be in the field of view even if it was only the bottom.
I have no idea why . It defies logic

Hard to take a picture through a scope but here you can see that annoying woman talking about her medicare card [ watching Bonanza while I clean the rifle.]

I have no idea why .
i ran in to this also with a scope on an AR22 upper. i cant see the front sight BUT if you put a red dot on it you will see the front sight .

that is the AR in bottom pic i had to put a riser on it to clear the sight , went back to a scope and all is good again.



I PICKED UP A dpms lr308ss A few shows back working on a load for it now, hope i can get mine that tight if so ill move to 200yd and work some more.

I love leupolds and My Tikka has one but the difference in the Zeiss is incredible

chevelle427 yours should group nicely . I think you have a 308 chamber where mine is listed as 7.62 x 51.
they are all tack drivers but the stock trigger is not great at all. I also broke the barrel in according to the manual [ cleaning after each shot and watched the groups tighten up]

I only use an Otis pull through that I bought from OutCast and brass chamber brush
