How to Bore Sight a Rifle Scope the Old Fashioned Way
This is very easy method that will get you on paper before firing your gun, I use this method all the time, no bore sighting tool is needed. The first video uses a gun vice and the second video is in the field without a gun vice. The third video is a two shot method that works well for semi-autos or to check a gun that is already close. Once sighted in exactly how you want at 100 or 200 yards you may want to shoot twice more for a 3 shot group to confirm your sighting and check how good of group you can shoot with your gun.

Sighting on the range without a gun vice.
HOW TO BORE SIGHT A RIFLE


How to Sight-In with Two Shots
Bolt Action - After bore sighting your rifle this method can be used to finish sighting at the range.
Semi-Auto - Because you can't look down the barrel to bore sight semi-auto rifles use this method first at 25 yards with your semi-auto. After sighting at 25 yards move the target to 100 yards and repeat the process.

The previous videos should have helped you understand scopes and shooting with them much better at short to medium ranges. There are more videos which are more complex to help understand longer range shooting, these may or may not be interesting for you to watch.

Watch the Long Range Shooting Videos: (to be posted soon)
