I previously sighted for 30yds (at MF, so indoors/no sun problem) and could hit paper easily. I was attempting to hit a large target @ 100yds, I could hit paper sometimes, but with zero consistency. Some shots were okay, some where nowhere to be found. I honestly couldn't even figure out where my shots were going.vmtcmt said:Unless you go for a higher price laser, you won't see it at any distance outdoors. What distance were you shooting? Are you on paper at closer distance?
If you're really far off, pick something on the berm, like a discarded shotgun shell, and have someone else watch to see where you are hitting. You may be able to see it yourself if you zoom the scope all the way out.
Problem with Brookhaven is that the back of the range is just sand, so there's no indication other than a puff of sand on impact, and with a little wind it is far from reliable.foxfire said:When in doubt move in, and keep moving in until you see the shot or hit paper. I can't remember the name of the lazer bore sighter I use, but I set it up in the basement and never had trouble at the range.
If you need a hand or would like to try it one evening PM me no problem.

Yes, some landed on paper, albeit VERY low. I did a quick field check of the mounts and they seemed alright (this was my first thought), although I did not bring my leatherman to tighten the mounts and to confirm that they were tight. They seemed OK.Mad Russian said:When you say "..some shots were OK..." does that mean that some shots landed on paper?
If that's the case, your scope mounts maybe loose, or your scope's reticle is drifting, which can happen even with good scopes. Don't discount a defective scope.
Also, if you're zeroed at 30, the shots will be low at 100. At Mitchell you aim up to the target, at brookhaven you level with the target. You should zero an inch high at 50, then you shoud be just about right at 100.
