How far forward should I mount my scope?
How far forward should I mount my scope?
Three to 4 inches is about right. You must focus the eyepiece (ocular lens), and thus the reticle, on every new scope.
What happens if your scope is not level?
When a scope is not properly level, the cant of the reticle can be distracting, or worse, provide an inaccurate point of aim. Mounting a magnified riflescope is a fairly straightforward process: Focus, set eye relief, securely attach rings to rifle, torque screws evenly.
Where should scope rings be placed?
- Secure the scope rings to the base at the recommended torque value.
- Install the optic in the rings at the highest magnification, but don’t completely secure the ring screws quite yet.
- Make sure your rifle is set to its highest magnification.
How close can a scope be to the barrel?
Our recommendation is no less than 1/8th of an inch of clearance between the bottom of the objective and the top of the barrel.
Should I mount my own scope?
The simple answer is your scope mounted by someone else was likely mounted improperly. Many gun experts will tell you that mounting your own rifle scope properly is the #1 thing you can do to improve the performance of your rifle.
What should scope rings be torqued to?
Well-Known Member. Wheeler recommends 15 to 20 in/lbs on standard scope ring screws on the upper halves. Supposedly after 20 in/lbs, the rings can handle it, but the bit has a possibility of breaking. The side bolts/screws have a large range of torque specs depending on what rings you have.
Does my scope have to be perfectly level?
If your scope Reticle and your turret travel are not perfectly aligned this way of mounting could cause you issues. If you use the Reticle for holdover it will function properly, but if you dial using your turret it may or may not work. The turret travel and your bubble level must be in exactly the same plane.
Is scope leveling necessary?
Yes, a level indexed to your reticle is important for long range accuracy. Some would argue that it is not necessary on a long range hunting rifle, but I would argue that a hunting rifle is where it’s needed the most.
Should I use Loctite when mounting a rifle scope?
The quick answer is no we don’t, not unless something indicates to us that it is needed. Most of the companies that make rings and mounts recommend not using Loctite for a couple of reasons. Instead of using Loctite we prefer to use a torque wrench that measures in pounds per inch.
Can a rifle scope be mounted too high?
Senior Member. Your scope is way too high. It’s the goal to get the scope as close to the bore as possible. I’m sure you will be able to find lower rings and get proper cheek weld.
