Sight Adjustment

Factory sights on Remington high power rifles are targeted at 100 yards and carefully adjusted for average shooters at the factory.


Move rear sight to left by turning windage screw clockwise. This will move bullet impact at target to left. Turn windage screw counter clockwise to move rear sight to right. Bullet impact will then move to right.


Bullet impact at target will lift or range increase by raising rear sight. Raise rear sight by sliding notched sight step beneath sight. Bullet impact will drop, or range decrease if sight is lowered.
