What I mean is that if you take the turret off you will then have just the adjustment post sticking up that you can adjust for elevation. Then once it is zeroed you can put the original turret on or the custom ordered one.

On my first CDS scope I had the same problem until I pulled the turret completely off, then I was able to adjust to where I needed to.

That’s what I did, but I have no more “up” elevation adjustment. I’m still too low and can’t adjust the adjustment post any higher.

I'd say that something is off then if it is indeed out of adjustment.

With today's equipment everything should work the way that is is suppose to without having to add some shims. I've put Leupold scopes on a half dozen rifles and have never came up with this kind of a problem.

Leupold has a number that you can call and talk to a technician to see what you may have to do to correct the problem

Did Smith and Edwards bore sight it for you after they installed the scope?

Thanks for all the help and advice. We put new bases and rings on it, re-mounted the scope, and got it dialed in after 4 shots. Something must have been wrong with how it was mounted.

I'm betting on it.

Never did understand why they don't mark the rings/bases better. I'd wager this is a leading cause of sight in frustration and wasted ammo.

That would make sense, I never measured to see if that was truly the case. I need to get more self-sufficient at these little things like mounting bases and rings and not rely on a sporting goods store. Over the last 10 months, I've had multiple little things like this that are frustrating.

On the bench at 200. That’ll do for me! Now I just need more ammo
