    If it goes low enough, but he careful I'd don't take much to over do it. Remember inch lbs not foot lbs.

    That is the vortex scope at 200 yards...after removing the fod in the bedding area and zeroing at 100 yards.

    as troy said your looking for an in/lb wrench....Honestly i LIKE the screw driver type, such as the wheeler digital fat wrench ive got, so would suggest one of those for stuff like guns and scopes...and well fasteners upto about 3/8th-10mm, after that usually the torque ratings get into the ft/lbs....but i DO use mine for automotive work

    I am surprised there are not more wrenches for guns that are cneaper. Most seem to be over $100. Other the the fat wrench.

    I would have gotten a Nikon, but because the Vortex glass I have isn't up to my expectations. The Ruger is a fine rifle, I wouldn't waste my time on less than a Leupold, Nikon, or if you get your tax return early, a Zeiss.

    The real cost on cheap scopes, as you are already finding out, is the waste of range time, ammo, targets, etc, on a scope which won't hold zero.

    Except in this case it isn't necessarily the scopes fault. In post #45 OP states "Piece of the plastic stock/forearm in the aluminum block beding area...and groups better with 165 grain ammo."

    Based on that I would say it was a rifle issue. Now, I am not saying that Vortex is the greatest scope out there, but I have two Vipers that I have been very pleased with.

    I am pleased with the set up for now...the group it shoots at 200 yards will be plenty good for the deer hunting I do.

    Ennnh, as long as you're dropping your deer, the setup can't be all that bad...

    That’s not great at 200y, but it’s not terrible either. I’d stop stressing about for this fall and hit the woods. Your freezer full of fresh venison won’t know the difference. After the season is over, no doubt you will find a load the rifle likes a little better.
