Rifle scope is hitting 5 feet high but dead center

I bought a 30-6 and replaced the old scope mounts with some new ones and the rounds are hitting 5 feet high from center left to right is perfect it's just hitting way to high to adjust down. what's wrong does it need shimming or can there be something wrong with the scope it adjusts fine and moves when I adjust, it's just extremely high.

Hi, I am going to purchase a # 8411 Nikon monarch 2.5-10-42 rifle scope. I intend to mount it on a Colt AR 15. They tell me that I can mount this scope on the carry handle. I have always mounted as...


I think you will very unhappy if you mount it on the carry handle. I suggest removing it and getting a Nikon M-223 mount, YOu might also want to check out the M-223 line of scopes. The 3-12x42 with Rapid Action Turret might really surprise you. I don't have one freind who hasn't tried mine out and not bought one. Hard to argue with that.

How many ft lb of torque for scope rings


A typical torque setting for scope bases (on a steel reciever) is 30 in/lbs. The rings (steel) need 15-20 in/lbs.

For a aluminum receiver and/or rings, 15-20 in lbs is about max. I use 10 in/lbs with blue Locktite for aluminum receivers and rings.

I bought a used scope with no manual. On the front of the scope it turns like the back but it has ranges on it do I need to know what range I am shooting for the rifle to be accurite


Take the bolt out of the rifle so you can sight down the barrel to the target. Get the target bullseye in the center of the barrel. Now look through the scope to see where it is. Adjust the windage and elevation screws to get the cross hairs on the bullseye. Look through the barrel several times to make sure the gun did not move off the target during the adjustments. A concrete bench with sandbags is best to use for this.

Cross hairs are tilted to right while scope is straight


Without seeing the rifle, my guess would be that either the rings were not tight enough or the lens came loose from the shot. It is rare depending on the quality of the scope. If the lens itself moved, it will not be waterproof or fog proof because the seal on the lens is not tight. If its under warranty then it should be replaced, if not then be care full not to get it too wet. If you had a suction cup, you could try to reposition it straight again.

Bushnell Sportview rifle scope wide angle 4x38 T4389 limited adjustment inconsistant results


Hello,
I had the same problem but was able to solve it by shimming the scope mounts with a thin piece of plastic. Put it under the rear to raise the sighting and under the front to lower. I still plan to buy my son a better scope.

Scope


Follow these steps

1) Mount your scope.

2) Use a bean bag or rifle mount and make sure that your rifle doesnt move much from its original position throughout this process.

3) Aim with the scope and shoot at a large backstop which will allow you to see where your shot lands, where ever that may be, it doesnt matter at this point. Again, make sure your rifle doesnt move much when firing.

4) With the rifle in the same position, look through the scope and adjust the crosshairs over to where your shot landed.

5) The scope now sighted in with the rifle. Minimal adjustment may still be required but at least your well within the ball park.

Happy Shooting

Nikon monarch 3.3x10.44 model 6539


it sounds like the cross hairs are moving i had this problem and it was the sight not the rifle check that the mounts are secure usually one of them will slip out or the guide if it is secure then it is the scope thats the problem return it if u can if u cant it can be repaired but this can be expensive and you cant do it yourself cus it has to be recalibrated sorry i couldnt be any more help it is usually the shock that moves the cross hairs take it to a shop and they will try it for you and tell you what is wrong also check that the screws holding the rifle together are secure because it happened to me once that one of the screws had broke and was allowing the rifle to move slightly so when i lined the scope up and fired it moved and then it put the sight out try this but a rifle shop should test it for free and tell you what is wrong they will put it in a vice and fire it so then they no the gun is in the same place when fired then they will no wether it is the gun or the sight but i would say it is the sight but before you buy another check all the screws are ok and none missing hope this is some help.....................
