In this video we discuss the “one shot zero” and how to save time and money at the range getting a rifle on paper and properly sighting in. Chad discusses a few different points to consider with various rifles but the basic concept is the same. Stay tuned, much more on the way.

    I don't even look through the bore, I line up my scope with the center, shoot the first shot, line up with center again and adjust scope radical and windage to center of shot, scope is now aligned.

  2. Ryben Flynn says:

    Rifle in a secure rest. Fire one shot at the target. Adjust the elevation and azimuth (windage) to put the cross-hair on the bullet hole. Done. Or fine tune it with a group of shots and put the cross-hair in the center of the group.

    Good advice. I learned this from my uncle with my bolt actions. Good on you. REMEMBER guys, most people we want to be with us, don't have any experience with firearms. We all need to bring the new generation in.

  4. Red Blue40 says:

    Not all ammo shoots straight…..and not all guns are stable when firing… a rifle in super slow motion….gun is shaking before the bullet comes out of the barrel…..50 cent piece groups at 200 to 250 or further is good enough

    Chad you do a great job most of the time communicating your point of view. I bore sight the same as you and have been for almost 50 years. Explaining the 35 Rem shot adjustment after the first shot will most likely confuse many new shooters. I give the same range lesson often but use the actual direction of bullet to paper contact where as you used the optic visual change to bore. When a newbe tries to translate what we know. They generally get very confused when making fine tune adjustments on paper with followup shots. Just my observation from years of training others. Thanks and keep up the good work!

  6. Joey says:

    Its best to think about which way the bullet needs to move rather than the reticle. The bullet needs to go down and to the left. If you think about moving the reticle, you will have to, as you said, "adjust in the opposite direction" which is confusing.

  7. Jon Schaefer says:

    So basically, after you adjust windage and elevation to line up with the point of impact, you move the sight back down and aim it at the center of the target and it should hit center or close to it? or am I getting it wrong?
