    ...to sight in my Hakko 4x30 scope on my AR15 and its still shooting 6-8 clicks to the right and a few up. WTF am I doing wrong? Is it not designed to be spot on?

    I align it just right and take a test shot and it still is WAY off.

    well, maybe your stock is fucked up, too much tension on the receiver. maybe too much tension on some of the rings. but mainly, bore sighting is not always spot on. there are things that come into play that are not seen when bore sighting. maybe your ammo is not optimal for your barrel.

    Bore sighting should get you on paper, then you need to adjust from there.
