Have seen the laser boresight kits at WallyWorld, and more expensive ones in the Brownells catalog...

I have the same question myself..

I've used the one from wally world and had good luck with it. Saved me a lot of time and ammo when I put a different scope on my .308. You still have to zero the gun but it gets you real close in my experience.

thanks .....Do you have to zero the laser cartridge ?or is it "true" outta the box?I would think the latter ,just want to make sure ..

a bore sight is just an extension of the barrel. Just meant to get you in the area when sighting in. Then you still have to fine tune the scope.

I was at the range visually boresighting a new scope when a guy next to me offered the use of his laser boresighter- the cartridge type. He dialed it in to within about an inch or so of being dead on. Don't know it that is typical results or not. Only problem was I have some colorblindness and could not see the laser dot at distance.

laser boresighters are great for getting a weapon on paper, saves time and ammo when sighting in. I've used a few and they work well, though the cartridge types seem to be more accurate

Yes, but not as well as one may imagine.

The stick em in the bore from the barrel ones get you on paper and that is about it.

The chambered boresights are a lot better. You can even use them to confirm your zero but lining them up with the dot doesn't zero your rifle.
