Well I fianallygot around to mounting the SS 16 on my new Savage12 LRPV.When I tried to use my collimater to bore sight I couldn't see the grid because the magnification is too much, just a blur.Plan B,went to my buddy;s to try his laser bore sighter same problem.Other than pulling the bolt and looking down the bore anyone have a suggestion?

The way I usually sight in my scopes is to count my clicks, set the reticle dead center, I then shoot one bullet at 25 yards and zero. Then move to 100 yards and I am usually around 4 to 6 inches high depending on the cartridge.

I look down the bore, at 50 is necessary, at 100 is no problem, then fire and adjust as necessary.

You can't see the laser, even with the paralax turned all the way down to 10 meters? Sounds like its time to pull the bolt.

 I use the SS20x and have no problems looking at either the laser or colimator.  Try dialing the AO down to 100 or lower and everything should clear up. You will not get it zeroed but you will or should be close.

I have found it's easier to pull the bolt...... having a helper to turn the knobs is also a good deal!

As primative as it sounds, these guys know what they're talk'n bout.
Looking down the barrel really does work.
I'd suggest locking the rifle down tight. You don't want any movement, except the crosshairs when turning the knobs.

 Also- remember that when you wish to move the crosshairs toward the line of bore, you will need to turn opposite the direction you might think would be logical. 
For example; if the rifle bore is centered on a distant target and the crosshairs are off to the left of said target, you will have to turn the windage  turret in the direction marked  LEFT, (not RIGHT) to correct it to the line of bore. This is because scope manufacturers design turrets to correct the POI (Point of Impact) when you are actually shooting while sighting in your rig.
 (In the example given in my second sentence, the POI would actually be to the RIGHT of the Point of AIM; hence the need to turn the turret to the LEFT, as mentioned.)
 Incidently, the same principle applies to elevation corrections, as well.

It's kind of like "Who's on first", but not as funny...

I just pull out the bolt, mount the rifle in my gun vise, pick out an object at about 100 yards and dial the scope in.  Then I go to the range and complete the zero.
