Accumark scope mounting issue

Accumark scope mounting issue
« on: April 16, 2018, 07:31:19 PM »
Recently purchased a new 6.5-300 Accumark. Has anyone had issues with scope alignment? Installed a Leupold Mark 4 rail with Mark 4 rings under a Swarovski Z6 scope. Ran out of windage adjustment 2-3 inches left of the bullet impact at 100 yards. Tried another rail and reversed the rings - no change. Could the barrel to receiver alignment be the problem? I am sending the rifle, rail mount and rings back to Weatherby next week  - they are sending a shipping box. Kind of disappointed with my purchase.

I wouldn’t think it could be that. I would think your holes were tapped wrong if it was that far off?

I hate to think about how Weatherby would fix the problem if it is the holes being drilled and tapped off center. I hate a patched rifle. I guess I need to be patient and see what happens.

Weatherby has great customer service. They stand by their products and if it’s their fault they will fix it.

If the holes are off I bet your in for a new rifle.
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

If your running out of adjustment it sounds like the wrong base

I would be surprised if it has anything to do with the rifle. Who knows. Good luck.

Please let us know what the issue was, when resolved.
