Whichever bore sighter you buy, spend a little more and make sure it has adjustable windage and elevation.
If the sighter is off, you'll just waste ammo after you have sighted in with it. With adjustable sighter zeroing them is easy: chuck it into a drill, secure drill to a table, turn it on and spin the drill at slow speed. If the dot makes a circle, the sighter is off, and you adjust as needed.

Are the laser ones good? Do I have to buy a pricy one on or can I get away with a lower priced one?

I have one and I need it to be higer mine is a little too short

Get the universal one. As always: you get what you pay for. Cheap bore sighters will cost you money in wasted ammo.

That's the problem I'm having now. I bought a copy of a Bushnell on ebay ..... the one that looks like a fat pencil with adapters that go on the back. As I rotate the laser 1/4 turn at a time the "dot" moves ..... even after trying to get the average .... I was still 16 clicks out on windage & 24 clicks out on elevation at 25 yards. I had to start at 10 yards just to get on paper.

Have one. Not perfect, but it works. I belong to Freeport R&R if you want to try before you buy.
Thanks for the offer. I'll send you a PM next time.

I like the busnell holographic sighter.....it has a magnet that connects to the barrel and lines up with your scope. When you look through the scope ull see a chart and you use that to site in. Then when u go to the range u will be on paper amd can fine tune...and once your zeroed connect it again and see where it is on the chart. Mark that down in a notebook as your zero and you are setbforever.

The guys at campsite only.carry this boresighter and reccomended it to me.....seems great so far and works with all calibers as well as all scopes,red dots, and even irons.

I have one for each caliber. IMHO there more accurate and dont have to worry about it being out of level. They are more expensive though in the long run if you dont know where to find them cheap.

I never like the idea of "universal anything" .... to me universal means it fits nothing!
The problem is that having so many calibers it does get expensive.
BTW due to my poor eyesight I have scopes on everything.
Eventually, I'll get everything the way I like it then this won't be an issue any more.
