I managed to get the R-15 and scope sighted in this morning. Although cool, the wind was next to nothing for a few hours after dawn. I'm neither the most consistent shot, nor particularly skilled at sighting in rifles, so it took about 60 rounds to get to the point where I was satisfied. Starting at 25 yards I roughly adjusted for windage and elevation, then worked back through a few intermediate distances to 100 yards where I concentrated on zeroing in the scope to the best of my abilities.

I'm pleased with the results. My best grouping once I was done fine tuning the scope was 1.25" at 100 yards. This was with a Nikon Pro Staff 3-9x40mm scope and Remington 45gr hollow points.

I plan to try some other bullets in other weights to see what gives me the best consistency, but I'm pleasantly surprised with today's shooting. With any luck at all the rifle and I will get some coyotes soon.
