I'm in need of some advice here. I am trying out some Warne scope mounts for the first time on my Win mod 70. So in a nutshell, a month or so back i took my 300wm out to check the zero in the hopes of making sure it was on target. i have been doing a bunch of travelling with the rifle in a padded gun case. I was getting some pretty random impact on the target, all over the place with no consistency. First i thought it was me, so i packed away all the gear and went out a few days later to try again. Same thing happened. I checked the barrel, seems clean as normal. Decided to take the scope off and try the open sights. Try the open sights and i end up with holes just about touching. a little off zero, so i make the adjustments and get the open sights on target at 100m. I guess from this that i either have a scope issue or a mounting issue. I get my hands on a new set of Warne mounts and rings. Fit these to the rifle, first thing i noted was that i nearly ran out of vertical adjustment bore sighting the scope. Second thing was to use the magnification and zoom in on a target, but i could not turn the magnification ring. As i loosen the top screws on the back ring, i can turn the magnification ring. First question is what and why is this happening? I guess this means the mounts and/or the rings are not aligned? I have not had this happen before. Second question is what can i do about this? I could send them back to the gun shop but they do not have any more in stock for me to swap with. So i would have to try order and ship from outside Zambia. I am tempted to do this in any case as i wanted to mount another scope in warne mounts and rings on another rifle. Both scopes are Leupolds. Here's the kicker... Resident hunting in Zambia has been closed for 2 years, so this has not been an issue the last 2 months, hunting options are few and far between and @spike.t wont let me use his sable as test targets to sight in my rifles anyway. Yesterday they decided to open hunting, so i have a little more urgency to get this sorted out! I could use a different rifle, but she's my favourite!
