However, when I checked, I found that the windage turret was at the extreme of its travel.
So I have just rotated the front riser block: and whilst doing so, and resetting the turret to its centre, found that it wasn't at its centre position when it left the factor; as it should have been. Only by a 1/4 of a revolution, but ...

We'll see what the outcome is on the indoor 40yds range tomorrow.
I hope to get it set up to be able to attempt a competitive shoot at Sywell on Sunday.
Ranged and elevation turret clicks all recorded.
When setting up try to use a big cardboard box ( not shot at ) makes life so much easier . or if not , get the left and right by shooting at the grass close in . ??? HOLLY
