  • Wheeler Professional Laser Bore Sighter

    ordered on Friday, April 5th, delivered on Sunday the 7th .... Amazon done did good on this one .. .. the mount of our Aimpoint on our Ruger Redhawk worked loose during our recent trip to Texas .... after the Wheeler Laser Bore Sighter arrived I totally removed the Aimpoint .... cleaned the underside of the Aimpoint and the rail on the Ruger .... moved the Aimpoint back one notch and reinstalled it .... turned the Wheeler on and, as advertised, the green laser is very bright .... turned the Aimpoint on .... its red dot was below and left of the green dot .... removed the adjuster caps and, with the benefit of have the Redhawk on a solid rest, moved the red dot to where it was directly on the green dot ... the color actually turned yellow .. .. very quick, efficient operation .... the Redhawk is now ready for a trip to a range fine tune the scope .... I really like the fact that with its magnetic mount, no additional adapters are required to use it on various calibers or with muzzle brakes .... having recently remounted scopes on 4 of our rifles, I'm looking forward to using the Wheeler to help quickly resight them

    earlier today I had a chance to use our Wheeler Laser Bore Sighter for the first time ....
    Weather : sunny sky, target in full sun,

    distance : 25 yards

    firearms on which it was used :
    Henry 22LR
    Ruger 10-22 22LR
    Henry BBS 357 Mag
    Henry BBS 44 Mag
    Ruger Redhawk 44Mag

    results :
    all 4 rifles are equipped with magnification, crosshair scopes .... could NOT see the green laser dot at 25 yards with unaided vision .... green laser dot clearly seen through each of the 4 rifle scopes .... adjusted the crosshairs on all 4 rifles to where the dot was 1" high at 25 yards .... subsequent live firing of the 22's and 357 confirmed that with the crosshairs dead center, the bullets hit very close to 1" high .... the minor adjustments required bring the impact point to 1" high were easily and quickly made .... sighting the 44 Mag turned out to be an entirely different animal .... with the same bore sighting process, the live firing mystified me at first .... our targets were 6" paper plates with stick-on 1" dots .... the first few shots didn't hit the plate and I had no clue where they were actually hitting .. .. the first thing I checked was the scope to see if it was loose, nope, seemed fine .... I reinstalled the laser bore sight and the impact point wasn't the same .. .. corrected the crosshairs and fired another test shot .... nowhere on the 6" plate .. .. made the decision to determine if it was hitting high or low .... to do so I held the crosshairs on the bottom of the 6" plate, no bullet hole .... the held them roughly 4" below the bottom of the plate, finally, a bullet hole dead on the vertical line but a couple of inches down from the top of the place .... in short, left-right adjustment was perfect .... the up-down adjustment was around 9" high .... cranked the crosshairs down, now hits 1" high at 25 yards .... close to 100 rounds followed confirmed that she's sighted in where it should be

    have spent considerable time giving thought to the why ? .... my belief is I didn't take the care to try and place the center of the bore sight in the center of the much larger 44 cal opening .... with a 22 there isn't much room for error but there is with a large bore .... in short, the sighter worked and I've learned a good lesson about using it with a big bore .... all in all, well pleased

    with the Redhawk, I couldn't see the green dot when looking through the Aimpoint which has no magnification .... I believe I can make it work if I try it again with much dimmer lighting

      I may have to check out this Bore Sighter. especially if it is that easy to sight in.

        I'm still mulling over the way it went with our 44 Mag .... next time out I plan to take a 45-70 and see how it does .... with 30 caliber and below it made sighting in super easy
