Well, I wouldn't use a "stick", but most probably a small screwdriver to cause the brass wire to bend out a bit more to fit into the grooves of the bore! :D

When the arbor is anchored in the bore, attach the optic and tighten the holding clamp to keep it at 12 O'clock. I have an old Bushnell of this type and both the older and newer Leupold sighting devices. however, I still find that boresighting a bolt rifle is far easier and more accurate. Slip the bolt, put the rifle in a solid holding device (gun cleaning stand is great) and line up the bore with an object at a distance. Adjust the turret knobs until the crosshairs align with the object. There is a building with a letter "F" on it across the fairway from my back door at a measured 96 yds. Using a TV table and an Outers rifle rest, I can be within 1" at 25 yds when going to the range. After zeroing dead center at 25 yds, the target is moved to 100 yds and further adjustments are made for POI if needed or desired.
