    Here's how it works if you haven't vised it and just sand bagged it. Shoot the round, put the crosshairs back on the X you tried to hit, hold it steady in the shoulder and move the turret knobs to till they are on the bullet hole. Now reacquire the X, make the shot. Minute adjustments of a click or two are all that will be necessary. 3 shots and done is normal at 100 yrds from the bench.
    Ah, I see. Thanks!

    ^ this, for the most part. Although I zeroed my boy's TC Contender .223 pistol using a 3 shot group and dialing the scope to point of impact. Expedience. The civilians were whining about the noise from the 10" barrel

    I have the Lead Sled and tried the one shot technique. I can't keep the gun from jumping enough. It even jumped quite a bit in the video.

    Officially started working out of a Navy facility in WPB last week, but back up in DPRofMD this week for last bit of repairs, flooring and kitchen appliance installs, and sign the listing paperwork on Friday. Then I should be working out of WPB until the end of August and hopefully figure out what's next for gainful employment within commuting distance of Boca after that, cuz even though I plan to retire from Civil Service, with three boys, two of them teenagers and the youngest almost one, I'll have to find something to afford the grocery bill and just a few other things!
