Tasco Rifle scope repairs

I have a Tasco 10x rifle scope with mil dots and target turrets. Somebody dropped the rifle and the scope is dented at the front end and the front lens is chipped. The scope is still fully functional but I want to send it for repairs. Where can I send it? I live in Cape town South Africa

Do i have to loosen set screws on turrets to zero scope or do i zero and leave the set screws where they are to shoot at different distances? thx. 6x24x42 varmint with mil dot reticle.


Sight in your scope, Loosen the set screws and zero the dials the re-set the set screws. This will make it easy for you to adjust for distance and wind from the zero setting when in the field shooting. Then you can go back to your zero.

Once zeroed in is the range on the turrets correct at i go longer distances?


This depends entirely on what class of cartridges the scope was built for. Different cartridges will drop more or less at a specified distances based on starting speed and ballistic coefficient. If your scope is built for a .223 and you are shooting a .223, then it will work fine. If you mounted it on a 45-70 however, the bullet will drop much more quickly and your necessary scope adjustments will not match the markings on your scope.

On the adjustment turrets, after loosening the set screws, how do you get it to go down so the yardage lines up?


after you sight the rifle in at say 100 yd. lift the turret and line up the 100 yard mark on the turret to the mark, then push the turret down onto the scope and set the screw. some times the turret takes a lot of pressure to push back on.

Rifle scope with 50 foot paralex needed w/24x+ power


well a fixed scope will be bang on target at 100yds only but off a bit at 50yds a paralex scope will be bang on target what ever the range is as the paralex puts the range right every time wether its a verible or not so if i were you i would go for the paralex scope
and i also do bench rest shooting, with .22,,,357,,,22/250,,,303...7.62/308,,,
up to 1200mtrs!

Cant determine if my tasco 6x24x42 scope was made before 9/02. rifle was dropped and can not get it sighted in. is there a fee to get it repaired!! I some other name brand riflescopes have lifetime...


not with a "tasco" there a bit of a cheepy scope, if it was a good make then it would be worth the cost of the repair, put it this way,,,the scope you fit to your rifle should cost 3 times more that the rifle did! a tasco scope on e-bay costs what? £150.00p to be honest theres a big "0" missing from that price?

Tasco 6-24x42mm rifle scope parallax adjustment


Here's what you need to know about Mil Dots and rangefinding.

When you look through the scope you should see 5 mil dots on each axis, your scope may have broad lines taking place of the 5th mil dot if it is a "modified" mil dot scope. For measuring purposes, 1 mil is the distance from the center of one dot to the center of the one directly above or below it. 3/4 of a mil is the distance from the top of one dot to the bottom of the one above it, or the "space in between dots". 1/4 mil comprises a single dot, the space between the top of one dot and the bottom of that same dot.

A quick calculation is Size of Target (In Yards) x 1000 / Size of target in mils = Range in Yards

Miliradian or "Mil" is an angular unit of measure, so if you were shooting at 1000 yards and moved up 1 miliradian that would be one inch impact moved up.


Anyway lets say you have a 30" target and we need to find the range... using your scope you place the bottom of the target at the CENTER of a mil dot and count how many mils up, good estimation is key... I'll draw a little text diagram, an asterisk * will be the target top and bottom, and parentheses () will be a mill dot
( * )--------(  )-----*---(  )
Now lets assume the asterisk on the left is the bottom of your target and the one on the right is the top, I put Ten Hyphens in between each dot so if you count from the left you should get about 1.6 Mils. Its real easy to do it in your head, you already know two whole dots is one mil so you just have to estimate whats to the right (or top if you were looking down a scope).

So we know the target is 30" and we have a Mil Reading of 1.6
30/36= .833 so 30" is .833 Yards

So now we can use the equation .833 x 1000 / 1.6 = 520.6 Yards is the distance of the target


Now you can also use Mil dots to do hold over for when the target moves or for wind and elevation but that gets extremely complicated.

There are many books and websites to confirm what I've said here, but the best way is to go out to your range and talk to some long range shooters and show them your rifle/scope etc and get hands on help.
