Thanks. I knew/hoped those should have been the answers. I guess I'm just a miserable suspicious git...
Went back to give it a final tweak today. Oj.....
Started out bang in line and 3cm low at 100m just like I left off. Lovely. 3 clicks up - same POI. Hmm... a few more clicks, nice little clover leaf. what the....
I figured I was really planning to shoot it in at 150m anyway so why waste the ammo and my shoulder. Moved the target. Strelok said it should be about 5 clicks up. First shot was 40cm high! Not 4cm. 40cm!!
At this point I'm thinking the scopes vertical adjustment is buggered. I'd been having trouble from the beginning, hence these questions. Anyway, I adjusted it back down. Shot 2 rounds into the middle 1" square. Shot the top bbl, it was maybe 3cm cm low but windage was good and given the trouble I was having I wasn't inclined to mess with it.
Laid the rifle down while it cooled. When to take a second pair of shots to be sure and was having trouble getting position on the stock so I could see through the scope properly. I figured I was just so damn angry I was loosing position at the bench. 2 more shots, similar spread as before but again - 40cm high
At this point I was contemplating smashing the scope against the bench and then conscious thought started to penetrate the red mist. Sure enough - it's a rail scope and the recoil had loosened the scope on the mount and it had been creeping forward over the teeth.
I don't want to think how many rounds down range have been wasted in this effort. Dammit!
I'll check it out once I've calmed down had hopefully that was the problem, and I'll be able to complete the setup without buying a couple more boxes of Woodleigh bullets. My shoulder has taken enough of a pounding as it is - as has my confidence in my ability to shoot this rifle.
