  1. Thanks for pic. But definitely don't have any index marks.☚ī¸
  2. Thanks for giving it some more thought. There are no markings that I can see that would suggest indexing the tops of the mounts. It's looks like I will not be able to get to the bottom of this. Thanks for your consideration.
  3. Hi 1in8twist Alas the mounts are only on the rail and do not go onto the forend picatinny rail.
  4. It is a very nice rifle and shoots well. Although a bit early to pass full judgement but I reckon it will out shoot me.😃
  5. One on top of two I have a 6.5 Creedmoor.
  6. I must be good if I can get it wrong on all mounts and rings twice. With the exact same results.😄
  7. I have again tried the mirror method seems direct sunlight is better than 2 spot lights. The results are with scope 1 it is perfect both mechanical zero and optical zero are the same. Scope 2 is off by 3 clicks to the right from mechanical zero. What now comes into play. Is why there is 20 clicks difference in the same 1 piece mount between scopes 1 and 2 if the only error between scopes is 3 clicks right ? Or is there something else that I am not factoring in.
  8. See you can give advice without coming across as a complete ⚓
  9. The point is I don't know how much windage I may need. Strelok states in a 25mph wind at 90 degrees at 1100 yards I need 6.8 mils left therefor I am 2.4 mils short of adjustment. Forgive me for not running this question by you before I posted. I now understand if it's not relevant to you then it has no place being asked.
  10. Have just tried this and when I put the mirror up against the scope it all goes black and I can't see any thing. I don't have illuminated reticles. Just tried with a cheap scope and I can just about see the double cross hairs but on my higher mag scopes with the mag turned out it is just black in the centre.

  12. Cheers pete Will give it a try and see what it comes up with.
  13. Scopes hold thier zero. So i don't think that is any cause for concern. Interesting that an oiled mount holds better zero. I have shot this rifle and it groups well. The problem is I don't know if I have a compounded problem with the scope, mount or rail. Zero is being obtained at 50m's not ideal but all I have to work with. Rifles have been zeroed at 200m's before but I did not take the readings. What I can deduce is Tikka 1) With scope 1 and the 1 piece mount. I have zero at 49 clicks to the left of mechanical zero. 2) With scope 2 and the 1 piece mount. I have zero at 29 clicks left of mechanical zero. This would seem to indicate that the rail and mount have a compounded error of 29 clicks if the mechanical zeros are true. However this does not explain the extra 36 clicks of scope 1 which should only have 150 and not 186. Plus the mount is machined from a single block so could this really be out of alignment? 3) With scope 1 and 2 piece rings. I have zero at 33 clicks left of mechanical zero. 4) With scope 2 and 2 piece rings. I have zero at 9 clicks left of mechanical zero. If I change to 2 different rifles I get the same readings on both rifles. 1) Scope 1 and 1 piece mount. Zero at 26 clicks left of mechanical zero. 2) Scope 2 and 2 piece rings . Zero is 7 clicks left of mechanical zero. No here is what really throws the figures out Scope 2 with 1 set of the 2 piece rings. Zero is 15 clicks right ?? of mechanical zero. I can only test with 1 set of the 2 piece rings as one set are to low. Alls these measurements have been tested twice with same results.
  14. Rifle is a tikka T3 Tac A1 rings and mounts are picatinny.
  15. Thanks for the replies. If i can explain some more. Scopes are fitted using torque wrench and even gaps either side. The problem I have is that my set up using 3 different mounts are giving me different readings. Using a 1 piece mount the error is 49 clicks left of mechanical centre and 33 clicks left of mechanical centre using 2 different 2 piece rings. If I change the scope. Same make and has the stated 15 mils (150 clicks) the error drops down to 26 clicks left of centre with the 1 piece mount and 9 clicks with 1 of the other 2 piece rings. If I change rifles the original scope and 1 piece mount changes to 27 clicks left and the 7 clicks left with the other scope. This repeats its self on the third rifle. Mounts and rings can only go on 1 way as they have built in bubble levels.
