Sighting in a scope

(1/2) > >>

Novagun:
I set my scopes up on the rifle using the mirror method. Then i test fire and make adjustments
I sighted in a scope the other day and it was bang on . I went out this morning and shot at a target and the group was low and to the right by 50 mms. The difference is that today was much colder and damp.
I wonder how much the temperature effets the scope and shot  cycle and the shooter who was not warm.

Tater:
Moved to the Optics Gate.

What is the gun being used Hugh?
  That may make a difference on how temperature sensitive it is.

Back_Roads:
 When I shot springers for hunting, I would set the sights for the first cold shot, as the gun warmed up with more shots the POI can change. Typical hunting not many hot shots are taken.

PasadenaMike:
As mentioned. What’s the gun being used ?
