I think I did something stupid today at the range.

My 6.5 is mounted with a Bushnell Elite Tactical 4-30x50 (30 mils total travel per website). I was playing around with some of Chad subsonic for the 6.5CM and marched out from 100-300 on steel.

I forgot that this rifle had a 0 MOA rail (and not a 20 MOA like my other rifles) and I thought that i had enough travel to dial up to 15 Mils of elevation. Whoops. When i try to dial back down to 0, the elev knob stops at about 4 mil and won't return to zero. Did i break the darn thing?

What do i do now?

bang

Send it in. They were about a 2 week turn-around the last time I sent them one.

Zero stop moved? That's not good.

I heard a few bad stories and never set the zero stop on mine.
