So I’ve took my rifle out to the range recently, it was dialed in for 25yd and impact like champ, any who I’ve been trying to figure out how to lock this zero in. From what I’ve researched you just loosen your cap and line it up with zero and start righting down some hex nuts, but when I do this I can’t go past a couple MOA left or right. I took off the cap, and noticed this silver ring at the base shifted. I believe it’s a zero stop and needs to be locked up by 4 hex screw that are <.050 …. I think It’s .035 Their micro. any who if i Get these screws and lock that ring, would it matter if I went -2MOA of that ring so it stops at there. My zero would still be zero, but my stop would be -2MOA just so my stop doesn’t get accidentally turned clockwise and loosens up again. Please let me know if this logic is correct and thank you again y’all.
The zero stop plate (if it is already loose) can be set to whatever you want your -0- to sit. The screws that hold the plate in place, are 0.9mm allen screws. There are (4) of them around the perimeter of the plate. Some people like to be able to dial down past their zero, such as with .22lr or other rimfires. The plate should be situated to when the zero stop set screw is engaged, it stops dead on -0-. If you screw is dragging and preventing you from turning the turret, back the set screw out about 1/2 turn, then tighten the lock screw to hold it in place.
