Fireguy, funny you should post this.
I have a new regular SAI Scout in a Walnut Stock. I know it is not a Socom and it is not in a Troy chassis, but took it to my local 50 yard range for the first time last week. I had put on a Basset Low Picatinny Scope mount, Leupold rings and a Leupold 4X12 scope.
Could not adjust the scope low enough to zero at 25 yards. Obviously did worse at 50 yards. The rifle was shooting way high.The groups were fine, but I could not get the scope to go any lower than 2 inches high at 25 yards, no matter what ammo I used.
Took off the scope, went to iron sights, 6 clicks up from bottom at 25 yards, dead center on the target. No problem at 50 yards.
Now I am really confused, so I take the same Basset Mount, same rings, same scope back to the range on a SAI NM. No problems, the scope and mounts function fine. Dead on at 25 and was fine at 50 yards.
The Scout will not be used with a scope anyway, but I am wondering if I am missing something here.
