Hi new to the forum. I've got a 7.62x54r with 20in barrel and thumb hole stock. Had it for a few years and now installing a scope. Have a Midwest Industries mount and a Vortex Diamondback 6x24 x50 scope,with Vortex extra high rings. Probably not the spot for a question but will ask anyway. When doing bore sighting can't get the elevation high enough to put laser in crosshairs. What am I doing wrong? Will a different set of rings,slightly lower help? Do I need to shim the mount? Haven't taken to gun smith yet but that's probably next.

Welcome to the forum! It sounds like your optics are sitting too high.
