I have a .222 that I just recently put a bushnell sportsman 3x9x40 scope on. The issue I am having is that the bolt is actually hitting the scope itself. I moved it back as far as I could but it still didn't fix the problem. Of course it has to be a side mount rifle. The main problem is, when I unload a round (not fired) it won't eject the shell as the bullet is still not out of the chamber. I can't pull the bolt far enough back as it hits the scope. Suggestions?

not exactly shore what your saying here pal without a pic, but am guessing that a higher set of rings will cure your problem!!

Higher rings but try to avoid see tru's as you will loose accuracy. Also you could always install a longer eye relief scope and cheat it a bit towards the front to allow for the bolt throw back.

I'm curious, you're .222, is it a Rem or a Rem Mag?

tks.

They guys in the shop are NOT gunsmiths. Have them send it to their gunsmith for a proper installation.
