How to Mount a Rifle Scope

Today I want to share with you a great video on How to Mount a Rifle Scope. This video was recorded by Tim O’Connor Leupold and Steven’s product line manager.

Tim will take you through entire process of rifle scope mounting, will give you  tips on proper torque, aliment of the mounting ring and the rifle scope. You’ll learn how to set the rifle scope on proper place for correct eye relief and how to adjust the reticle so it is straight up and down.

In the second part of this video Tim teaches you how to find a mechanical zero of the scope and how to bore sight your rifle scope after you’ve done mounting. You’ll learn one-shot sight-in method as well.

I found this video most right to the point and most useful than other videos about the rifle scope mounting.

This video is just 2 minutes long and you’ll witness parallax effect yourself.
