To the OPย 

what calibre are you using ?ย 
I too have Tic Tac with a Spurh Mount andย a leupold Mark 5 HDย 

and haveย just checked it mechanical centre and I can confirm itโ€™s a pretty good chance itโ€™s Not the rail on your rifle . Mine is showing .... ( in fact Iโ€™m going to keep it to myself as not wanting to annoy the PM11 fan boys ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ )ย 

lets just say it really is jolly good .

Like has been said. How much does it really matter ? Like has also been said if that bad I would give it a miss instead of annoying someone else with a half decent score 4 lanes down ๐Ÿคฃ

I've still not had the oppertunity of shooting a creedmoor.

I do like the look of theย tic tac ๐Ÿ‘ย

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.๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Recently at our club a member had exactly the same problem with this exact same rifle.

He setup had hisย scope with one mount on the integrated rifle picatinny rail and the front mount on the fore rail. He couldn't zero his rifle.ย 

We removed scope with mounts complete and fitted to the integrated picatinny rail. Zeroing achieved in 3 rounds.

I wonder it this is your problem?

Thank

Hi 1in8twist

Alas the mounts are only on the rail and do not go onto the forend picatinny ย rail.

Some mounts are indexed and they need to be on the right way.

I've got some I think are CPS rings.

The bottom half and the top half has a mark on it that match and should go together.

They may work the other but may change there line to bore axis....

Just a thought...... โš“๐Ÿ˜‰

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.

Get Spuhr one piece mounts, less strain on the scope and one knows it's not the mount if zero is off.
