Is barrel droop a feature or a bug?


Barrel droop is not really a good description.  If the barrel and scope are parallel, there is a chance of running out of scope adjustment when attempting to zero at close range, especially with high mounted scope.  My HW97 has the RWS lockdown mount with droop comp built in.  The Leupold scope is in the center of adjustment when zeroed at 30 yards.  A friend of mine with the same rifle doesn't use a droop mount and his is centered also, so it is pretty much a guess.  Either will probably work, the difference is only 8 moa.
