Absolutely.......

I used to dabble in woodworking. Measure twice (or more) and cut once.
I have a boresight laser that goes in from the breech. I therefore, have a pretty good point of aim and I'll work the sights to get onto that laser point. The only problem I have with that laser is that it uses two of those tiny batteries like they use in watches. But the moment I put those two batteries IN and before I screw the base cap the laser comes ON. Then I waste battery time screwing the base in and placing the sight in the breech. That's for .357 mag and .38 spcl. For .22 they came up with a box to house the batteries connected to the laser by a wire and the box has an Off/On switch. Very convenient.

Be careful there, as the muzzle is moving before the bullet exits, the bore sight method isn't going to work to well. Need to find the load you are going to shoot, then file, shoot, file shoot, until you are satisfied .

File a bit.....shoot ..... repeat

Boresight laser is to get me in the neighbourhood.
Problem is I rarely have the range to myself. During handgun sessions we shoot ten minute relays. 10 shooters on the line (usually 13 but end lanes are waiting for aeration and air flow fixes.)
What I like to do to zero in, is shoot from 10 yards (we're not allowed to shoot from less than seven because of steel backdrop and ricochets) then walk back two or three yards, shoot --- adjust if necessary--- back another few yards and repeat until I'm back at our maximum 20 yards line.
