I did make sure thay bore sighted it at the store, or atleast I watched what appeared to be bore sighting. Before any shots are taken at my local range the range officer will bore sight the rifle just to make sure you can get it on the paper @ 50 yrds and after that its a matter of minor scope adjustments. I am going back to Dicks on Wednesday to pick up a cleaning kit and then next Sunday I will start the break in process at the range. One bad thing about living in Michigan is you can't legally shoot a rifle in the lower part of the lower penninsula so it's tough to get some decent shooting time in and it's a 2 hour drive north to where I hunt and is legal to use a rifle. Does anybody practice with a air rifle or anything like that just to stay sharp? Something I've been contemplating since I can only shoot my rifle on Sundays.
