How To Set Your Scope To Fit You As Well As The Rifle

Great tips from a sniper trainer on how to set your rifle scope to not only fit the rifle but to fit you the shooter. This is a nice walk through of adjustments you should do when you are mounting a scope to a rifle.  Ryan Cleckner shows you what and how to set your scope to align properly with your eye. He compares putting a scope on a rifle and skipping the adjustments he will walk you through to buying a car and never adjusting the mirrors or seats. He covers everything from lowering the scope to adding cheek padding to the stock. He also advises trying the rifle in many different positions before tightening down the scope. He even shows how he built his stock up with a homemade piece of wood under the cheek pad to let his eye align perfectly with his scope. Good info for anyone adding a scope to a rifle.
