Scope zero question
My cheapskate neighbor bought his 93R17 Savage over and said he was having trouble zeroing the scope. It was a used gun he had just bought. It had an old USA Redfield 3X9 scope that he had mounted in a set of Weaver rings on the factory bases.
Sure enough, with the windage adjusted all the way “R” it was still shooting 6” left at 50 yards. I removed the scope, and checked the bases, rings, and everything looks square and straight. I believe the scope is bad… he wants me to “shim” it because he can’t afford a new one.
I have never tried to do that before with Weaver rings. What do you guys think? Can it be done where it stays on zero? Any help is appreciated.

How come it is always too something... Too hot, too cold, too soon, too late, too much, too little, too deep, too shallow, but always "too" something.
