Thanks Darkker, no offense taken. I appreciate your feedback.No, it's not lupus!
Hey your calipers out and masure your bases and rings, then do the math. How much actual can't are they each contributing? Syo an actual box test, with full mag movements at several points. Is the optic actually sound, or just "moves".
We've all been there, so I don't mean this in any way derogatorily. Those are cheap bottom end scopes and mounts. It's more likely they had a bag day, than two different factories accidentally machining reverse can't into a receiver and going they both landed in your possession.
I remeasured the rings, I get no more than .0005" difference between the two. However, my so called " zero MOA based did measure .004" difference end to end. I did not see that when measuring it on the gun. Its difficult to measure it precisely because of the concave bottom but I got consistently different measurements end to end off the gun. The average being .004"
Isn't offset something like .010" per foot though?
The scope tube measured right at 1" both ends. As far as the scope tracking to clicks input, I would say that is on. When I was making adjustments to zero it, I was going 20 clicks both ways and the POI tracked perfectly up and over at a 45deg angle til I got the windage zeroed, then continued up to get elevation zeroed.
When I put a mirror on the scope and turn the turret I can see move at each click.
