    Looking for the pop-in cartridge types to help verify scopes after ATV riding/travel. Anyone have a recommendation on brand, type, costs, etc? Do these things even work? I put a scope on my Norinco SKS and couldn't even find paper with the thing. We wasted a lot of ammo trying to settle that thing down but gave up in frustration (and lack of brass!). My new DPMS Panther LR-308 however was set up with Nikon Monarch at the gun shop and was pretty darn close to perfect. A few minor tweaks and she'll be a monster!

    I'd like to find a kit with .223, .30-30, .308, 7.62 x 39, and .30-06 to cover the range of rifles I've got so far.

    I've been looking at several online and most come as a single laser with different bore arbors available. Knocks seem to be limited battery life but that's understandable as they are only using small button-type batteries.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Have ya checked Wallmart

    I bought a bore sighter at wallmart that came with a bunch of adapters to fit almost any gun. I used it on about 3 rifles so far and they were on the paper first shot. They stick into the end of the barrel and shine a lazer from them rather than going into the actual chamber of the barrel. I think the one I bought was only about $30-$40 for the whole kit.

    it was alot like this one just cheeper

    Take the bolt carrier out and sight down the barrel. Center a distant object in the barrel and line the cross hairs to it. Save your money for ammo.

    I also want to get a multi size bore sight kit. I looked at these but was wondering if anyone has hands on experience with any . They are all in the same price range but different designs. Which one works best?

    The cartridge style would be my preference but I need too many sizes ($$$) hence looking at these kits.
