I've wondered about it because I've heard some people recommend working them in and I also know that for higher end Vortex scopes they use a collimator to calibrate those scopes.

Assuming a higher end Vortex scope and use of the collimator, what would be the recommendation? Leave it alone?

I already 'messed' with a low-end Weaver 2-7x32 scope and 'exercised' the turrets. It should be interesting to see if I can get on paper with it set to a theoretical mechanical zero. Saving grace might be that I have a Sightmark laser bore sighter, but I don't see myself able to use in daylight, so I may have to go to an indoor range with it, but then I can't secure my rifle steady at local indoor range because the platforms are so narrow and maximum range distance is 25 yards, but that, I guess, would also give a 100 300 yard zero with .223/5.56?
