Vortex Viper HSLR Help

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

I recently sighted in my .300 Winchester Magnum with the Viper HSLR 4-16x50. It is mounted to my browning x-bolt with talley scope bases designed for the rifle.

During the zeroing phase, I had minimal windage adjustment. However once I started adjusting elevation, I started to become concerned. I had to adjust elevation so much that once I was zeroed at 200 yards and the CRS zero stop is set, I only have a little more than one full turn in adjustment left in elevation, which is about 33 clicks up. Is this normal?

Any help would be great.

It sounds like the rifle is miss-drilled or the mounts are on backwards or some other miss-alignment malfunction. The first step would be to re-center the scope reticle and do some measuring. HOW FAR it is off and in what direction. Bore sight it first to find out, then it's easy to calculate what shims you need or what change you need to the mount to make it right. Tally can get you going but you first have to KNOW how far it's wrong and it what direction.
There is no safe direction to point an unsafe gun.
