I have been shooting short distances all my life. But, new to scopes. I bought a cheep remington 770 in 7mm in a package with Bushnell scope. I then bought a laser bore sighter to sight it with even though they say it is bore sighted out of the box. When I put in the laser bore sight it was way off.
My ques is this, why would it be that off. Is there a technique I may be doing wrong with the laser? I know I need to go shoot it to see but wow, it was way off.
I also wanted to know if I can shoot either 7mm mag or 7mm-08? I do understand that the mag would have a straighter tragectory for longer ranges but I am not going that far yet. I would like to be accurate at 300 yards first then maybe 500 with this rifle. Then move up to a higher range rifle after that. Just target shooting for now.
