    I sight the bastard in at 25yards (gives me "flat" shooting out to 200 yards), but when I bring my target in at 10yards, my hits are good 1.5 inches lower. Is this normal?

    My 22lr kit also hits at the same area at 10 yards (with similiar groups), but when I push it out to 25 yards I get like 5 inch groupings. :mamoru::mamoru:

    height over bore. The sights on a AR are a good 2.5" higher than the bore. 1.5" low at 10 yards sounds about right.

    That's what I thought as well, but the manual said otherwise. I'm gonna have to re-read it, I could have misread it in an excitement of getting a new platform to play with. :p
