FG, if your rifle is not leaning slightly right then your scope is not perfectly level? Just an observation from the photo you provided.

Got her sighted in perfectly a couple days ago boys. Adjusted her to the left 6 clicks and 12 clicks up so shes center and shooting 3" High @ 100 yards. I did take a 5 shot group but blew the 4th shot out :( Darn barrel heat! Hell, darn heat just in general! Weather has been horrible lately

FG, This scope is clearly out of whack, the alignment isnt even close when you compare the crosshairs to the trigger channel.
what's the distance you're shooting at here? looks to be about 25/30 yards.

I agree. The scope needs to be turned a little left.

That's what I saw looking at the photo, maybe 1/8" rotation to the left. Not a big issue just a re-sight-in. I don't use a scope level but maybe this is a reason to do so. I just changed a couple of scopes around and have to sight them in.

Well after late this evening, theres noooo friggin chance im touching the scope! LOL.

I upped my charge from 100gr to 110gr Blackhorn209 with the 250gr Aerolite. Surprisingly the recoil felt less with the 110gr load? This i dont understand but i'll take it!

100 yards 3 shots.

FG think how well you might shoot if the scope was level? I like to hit the orange bull! Which target were you shooting at?

Changing the scope isn't going to change how the barrel shoots. That's what gave you that group.

Nice group.
