    what old fashioned way are you talking about??? i have only 50 yards to shoot at the house and all the ranges are closed till after deer and duck season. so i figured i could site it in at 50 and bring it with me when i have 100 or 200 yards in front of me. load it and see were my scope is on the red dot at that distance.

    Centerpoint had one with different plugs to fit different calibers from .17 to .50 (and even 410, 20, and 12 guage). It worked well for a while, but then from out of nowhere it started burning up the batteries and over heating. I'm just investing in round specific bore sighters.

    so your going to sight it in at 50, and then check it at 100 with the boresighter. if you get it on at 50 and it is off by more than an inch or 2 at 100, you hve somethign SERIOUSLY wrong with your rifle, and a boresighter will not get it that close anyway.

    What load are you shooting with? I have a ballistic card made up for Federal Gold Medal Match 308 168 grain ammo.

    even still, it shouldnt take you more than 2-3 shots to get you closer at 50 than a boresighter will.

    ive got a fixed 10x on mine:

    same scope i have on my 50, just lower magnification,. at 100yd i get moa or better groups from steel cases wolf ammo. my handloads will regularly do less than 1/2moa, usually around .25" (thats 5 shots of 308 in a .40 caliber sized hole) you get teh right load for it, and it will perform.

    Place target 50 feet away. Secure rifle in a gun vise (or makeshift vise) pointing at target. Remove bolt. Look down bore from butt end. Adjust rifle so that target is centered in bore. Adjust crosshairs to center on the target. The rifle is now bore sighted.

    This puts you on paper, sometimes better. A laser may put you in or near the 9 or 10 ring if done right.

    I've got one of the cheaper lasers that uses o-rings in the end of the barrel. It is better than nothing and gets you on paper. The chamber lasers are the best set up and if you work with just a few calibers, the investment isn't too bad.
    We found out what "dealing" with progressive lefties is all about. Our side gives up something, they give up nothing and the progressives come back in a month or a year and want us to give up more... rinse and repeat...
