    Proper eye relief help...

    I know to get a proper eye relief is to go to max zoom and put head on rifle with eyes closed and adjust scope forward and back until there is zero shadow. But I'm worried it is wrong. In the pics I am showing what I see in optic and the way my I and on my rifle.

    It’s gonna be between 3.5 and 4 then looks shadowed in the pic but it’s hard to tell. I was critiquing your head placement only because again from the pic, you look too far upright or sitting back. When you go prone you have to stretch your neck a little (Turkey neck) so when I set my scope, I do it prone, and end up stretching a little sitting upright, but maintain the same check weld in all positions.

    If you see no shadows you did it right and it don’t matter where you put your face if you can hit good

    Build your firing position from the trigger, back. Close your eyes and lay your head on the stock. If you can't see through the scope, raise or lower your cheek rest on the stock until you can see through the scope. Then lift your head up, close your eyes, and put your head back down. Move the scope forward or rearward until you can see full image. Doing it on max power will work for most scopes.
