I just bore sighted a trijicon accupoint 5-20x50 on a rem. 700 and I had to use around 40 clicks of adjustment to get the thing on paper.  I have a mounted rail on the gun with medium height weaver tactical rings.  The height over bore is about half an inch.  Fairly new to long range shooting so I guess my question is, did I just use up too much of my adjustment capacity because my rings are too high? Thanks

Were you just using the bore sight, or did you test fire to verify where your rifle is hitting.

40 clicks is only 10 moa. So its not that much movement. I think that scopes has 50 moa of adjustment
