MFR Part #: RTAT01
The RingTrue™ Alignment Tool accurately aligns the scope reticle to the rifle bore. It is a lightweight and accurate tool that includes an accurate spirit level. Proper use of this tool will eliminate range-dependent errors due to a misaligned reticle. It can also be used to level the rifle when mounting an anti-cant indicator. This product has a lifetime guarantee against defects.
The RingTrue™ Alignment Tool is a simple yet accurate instrument that enables precise alignment of the rifle scope reticle (or elevation turret axis) to the rifle bore. It enables proper scope alignment for all types of shooting, especially long range shooting. It includes a spirit level that is accurately aligned to the vertical reference lines and edges of the tool.
The RingTrue™ Alignment Tool prevents canting errors due to improper scope alignment. It does this by aligning the reticle axis (or elevation turret axis) so that it passes through the bore of the rifle. This reticle alignment prevents aiming errors that increase with range. When used with an anti-cant indicator, increasing the reticle elevation will put all shots on a vertical line, instead of a tilted line (see figure below).
Unlike inaccurate hardware store levels and injection molded alignment tools that have moving parts, the RingTrue™ Alignment Tool is a highly accurate instrument. It has machined square edges and precise scope alignment marks. It is manually assembled on a surface plate and the spirit level is guaranteed accurate to within 30 minutes of arc.
When inverted, the RingTrue™ Alignment Tool becomes an accurate level for plumbing any horizontal or vertical surface, such as turret knobs, turret caps, etc. With the RingTrue™ Alignment Tool, no other levels are needed to align your scope.
To prevent canting errors due to tilting the rifle during the shot, an anti-canting indicator should be attached to the scope tube (not to the rail).
Reticle Alignment Process. The reticle alignment process has two parts.
First, the RingTrue™ Alignment Tool is aligned to the barrel and objective bell. The rifle is rotated until the spirit level on the alignment tool is level, and then the rifle is held in this position.
Second, the RingTrue™ Alignment Tool is inverted and placed on the turret or turret cap, and the scope is rotated until the turret assembly is level. The tool can also be placed against any flat edge on the turret body. At this point the ring cap screws are tightened using a torque wrench, while checking that the scope does not rotate. The RingTrue™ Alignment Tool will reduce canting angles due to reticle misalignment to less than +/-0.5 degree.
In some scopes there is a small alignment error between the reticle axes and the turret axes. In this case, the final reticle alignment process depends on the type of elevation adjustment that will be used. The boresight reticle alignment process we just described makes the turret axis pass through the center of the bore. This method is preferred when the turrets are dialed for elevation. If instead a bullet drop compensated (BDC) reticle is used for elevation, align the reticle to a plumb line or level line located at least 20 ft in front of the rifle.
