Sighting in your gun

4 posts in this topic

I am looking for some opinions/feedback from some fellow FM'rs that may have (or knows anyone that may have) used some of the products on the market that are used to sight in your rifles.

What brands do you feel perform the best for the money, and are there certain ones you like over others?

I have looked through a few pages of posts on here to see if there was a related topic, but I did not see any.

Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions you can give me.

the best thing you can do when sighting in is have a firm, steady rest. sandbags, a gun vise, anything. a steady rest will save time and money, and your shoulder as well.

Do you mean like a bore-sighter or a bench or what? I use a bore sighter, but wish I had a laser one. Then when I go to shoot I have a rest that sits on the bench from Caldwell, not a lead sled, just a cheap rest for stability. If you are going to shoot a lot though, the lead sled is the clear ticket from what I've seen...

Sorry, I was referring to bore-sighters and the many different styles they offer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
