boresight

Have a 22 with scope which Im trying to adjust , there's no removeable bolt so unable to sight bore. Thinking of buy either mechanical bore sight or laser ,both mount in front of barrel and are about the same price,( not the top of the line) but something just to get me on the paper until final adjustments can be made at the range. Any comments about either would be welcomed Thanks

The laser, while it may not be 100% dead on, will get you on the paper and allow you to sight the scope optically while looking at your target. Not sure about .22, but the larger bores have a laser cartridge that you actually load and it shoots a beam down the barrel to the target. Haven't used one, but in theory it should work fine.

I use Rube Goldberg method on .22--I never had adjustable
mounts on a .22.
Go to outdoor range-start at 25 yards-adj. windage & elevation until on bullseye--go to 50 yard-raise elevation,etc.
If you don't have a large sheet of paper ( put red marker dot in center) staple up small targets ( backwards ).
You won't waste as many .22's as you think.....................
have fun...................
