Question on the Leupold Boresighter if anyone can help -- Mine has always worked great, but the last time I pulled it out, it's showing all of my scopes sighted 6" high (which they aren't).  Seems like it has gotten knocked out of whack.  Is there any way to adjust it?

Hey guys I am new but have been buying most of my tactical gear from this site: competitor.com They seem to come up pretty often for most of the stuff I need. I had to return some stuff and no problem. Anyways I found the Leupold Zero Point Magnetic Illuminated Boresighter pretty cheap right at OP. Just wanted to share the link! If I see anywhere cheaper will keep you updated but been checking a few sites and seems like they are the most reputable. Hope I helped someone out :)

Hi all first post here on OpticStalk.
Just need a bit of info on the Zero Point.  I brought one of these last week and need to know.
First I will zero the scopes cross hairs to be dead center, using a 'vee' block and pumb line.

With the bore sighter fitted to the muzzel and the scope in windage adjustable mounts, if I line up the scopes vertical windage reticle line with the zero points vertical line will my scope be exactly above dead center, parallel and true to the rifles bore?
Thanks.

Mount the scope first for shooting.  Then use the instructions with the boresighter.  Your crosshairs should line up with the illuminated grid lines.  The only major thing to consider is the rule on the side of the boresighter and you crosshair height.  Don't worry so much if the boresighter is exactly centered.  Just eyeball the crosshairs and the gridlines for alignment.  The optics take care of that.  Then use your elevations and windage knobs to boresight the scope.  Your first shot at about 100 yards should be on paper.  Most times down and to the right on paper.

I used my Leupold Zero Point Boresighter for the first time today and was unable to see the grid in daylight. I had aligned reticle with grid last night in my basement where I could control lighting, but when I went to the range this morning to recheck and sight in, the Zero Point's grid was very faint to non existent, and unuseable. It was a bright clear morning but I was facing away from the sun and had a darkish background (dirt bank).

I went ahead and fired that particular rifle 15 times and did well anyway, but really disappointed I couldn't get the Zero Point to work. Anybody have any clues how I could get more out of it? No one else in this thread seems to have had that problem and I'm wondering how you all did it.

One poster asked about stainless steel barrels and Zero Point.  Most stainless steel barrels are martensitic stainless (i.e. 416 stainless) with enough carbon steel content to retain magnetic properties despite being labelled as stainless steel.

Isn't that the point of any boresighter, just to get you on paper.  
Lifetime warranty and excellent customer service don't mean a thing when your gun fails during a zombie attack.

+1, that's exactly what they're for. To depend on them for anything more is a mistake.
BTW, this threads been around awhile.

If that is @100yds, you are doing good.
Nothing wrong with bringing an old and relevant thread to the top, either.

I realize this is an old thread, but I didn't want to start a new one on the same topic. 
 
I just got the zero point to boresight my AR.  The problem is when everything is lined up, I can only see the bottom four squares of the grid.  I can't reach the grid with my scope even with the elevation cranked until it stops.  Any suggestions?

Things to note for the Leupold Zero point Magnetic Bore sight
 
The magnetic bore sighter will always need to be aligned vertically with the scope. The height only needs to be approximate because of the prism effect of the device. The scope sight in point will usually not be the center of the Grid. It usually is not the same between different rifles because of the difference in the crown on the barrels. It will be the same when used on the same rifle between different scopes. Use the supplied grid recording sheet or make your own to keep a record for all of your weapons for future reference. I have found this device to be accurate within 2"out to 300 yds when swapping scopes on a rifle if proper care is taken. When recording your actual zero point after initial sight in.  Then use the same diligence to realign  the new scope. After using the zero point a few times you will find the usual sweet spot that will be close for most rifles to get on the paper.
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

I've used this device for years.  It is fantastic for checking vertical zero any time you want to.  It is not good for setting horizontal zero unless you have a way to set the magnetic bore sighter absolute plum center on the muzzle.  I scanned one of the stickers that came with it and blew it up so it prints about page size.  This is what I mark my zero for various ranges.  Also, always use the same AO setting when using this device.
