Please have your rifle zeroed at 100 yards with the ammo you will be using for the class. Also, be sure your scope rings and base is/are secured correctly to the rifle. We recommend degreasing the screws and using purple lock tite to be sure. Use a torque wrench and tighten to manufacturer specifications. This means you may have to remove the scope. It’s worth it as it is difficult to fix these problems once the class is underway, and will slow the class down. Torque all action screws to manufacturer specifications also.
If using .223, be sure your rifle can accurately fire bullets that are around 69 gr or heavier
