Does anyone have any good reccomendations for a 223 bore siter. I'm not interested in spending an arm and leg.

Remove your lower from your upper.

Place your upper on bags aimed at target.

Remove BCG and peer down your barrel at the target downrange.

Then check your irons and/or your glass, adjust until they match or are close.

This will get you close on the cheap!

This is what I purchased. I setup the bore sight at night from the inside of my house to a tree that was 20 yards out.. I have yet to go shooting since I tried it so I can't comment on it's accuracy...

Thank for the advice. Unfortunately, this will not work with my Kel-Tec.

What ever happened to putting the target in close for a sight-in? Don't be embarrassed to bring the target in to 25 yards. Once you get it on paper and dialed in at 25 yards, you'll be good to go.

This what I do for rifles I can't sight down the barrel on. Bring it in close, dial it in, then walk it out.

I keep thinking about getting a boresighter, but other stuff makes it to the top of the list first.

Isn't 20 yards the same as 200 yards? Damnit, I can't remember....:(

After you're boresighted, here's a link to various zeroing methods: http://groups.msn.com/TheMarylandAR15ShootersSite/zeroingmethods.msnw] (http://groups.msn.com/TheMarylandAR15ShootersSite/zeroingmethods.msnw)

I use the Santos IBZ (Imrpoved Battlesight Zero).

Thanks for the link. Good source of info for sighting in. I have been searching for information just on this topic.

Look through barrel and rough adjust sights (or shoot at 25 yards)
Shoot at 100 yards and get it zeroed.

done

Last time I put on a new scope, my thrid shot was on targe at 600 yards. Two shots at 100 yards to get zeroed was all it took. I honestly don't understand the perceived need for a boresighter.

I bought that one too and when I got to the range it was way, way off. I had to do it all over again at the range. I've seen other types that are bullets form factor that you chamber. In retrospect, that seems to make more sense and yield better results.

50 yards = 200 yards. If you zero at 50, it'll be a few inches low at 25, a few inches high at 100, and pretty close to dead on at 200.

I have my EOTech sighted in at 50 yards - works well.

This is the one I use.

Sometimes it goes on sale. Not too shabby, I like it better than the Aimshot laser bore sight. Much brighter and you don't have to buy the different sleeves for diff. calibers
