I purchased a new Rock River Arms LAR-8 Predator HP and mounted my Swarovski Habicht 3-12x50 scope on a DNZ Freedom Reaper scope mount. At the range I had to raise the scopes elevation max up to hit paper at 500 yards. I had a Leupold VX-II 6X18X40 scope mounted on another rifle so I swapped scopes and ran into the same problem.

Next I swapped out the DNZ mount for a set of Burris Signature scope rings. To my surprise the problem did not go away. Has anyone ever had this problem? Could my problem be the Picatinny rail on the rifle?

Any help would be appreciated.

What were you shooting before that you did not have to max the elevation out on? What cal and barrel length?
