A: To use the bore tool, you would pick the correct adapter for the caliber you are sighting in. Tighten the bore tool in the bore of your gun with the roll switch facing up and so the tool does not move or wobble.

A: To obtain the best accuracy we recommend using 25-30 yards.
Q: What is 25-30 yards is not available?
A: The bore tool still can be used at a shorter distance of 15-25 feet. If this is the distance you are using, instead of placing the middle of your crosshairs/middle iron sight right on the red laser dot, you will adjust them to be 2-inches directly above the laser dot.
Q: How do I measure 2-inchs above the laser if I am doing the shorter distance?
A: Provided with the LBS-0006-140 is a target with numbers on the right hand side that range from .25-3.00. Simple use this target by pointing the laser dot in the bull eyes of the target and adjusting your crosshairs/iron sights to the “2.00” mark on the target. This will put you 2-inches above the laser dot.
