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.

well if the bullet hit is jumping about its all down to your scope,,,it could be that its just "lose on its mount!" or its died on you,,like the cross hair is bouncing about inside the scope so with the recoial it jumps into a new place with every shot fired there by giving you a new point of impact,,,
this can happen if the scope was wound right up or down or left or right and strain was put on the adjusters,,,you may need to buy a new scope,,,,a good "air rifle!" scope will work quite well on most full bore rifles,,,yer right i here you say!!! ok,,iv got air rifle scope's on my .303 + 7.62 + 22-250 + .357 under leaver marlin cowboy, all 3 of my .22 rim fire's and they have been on these rifles for years now,,,1000,000, of rounds fired so far, with no problems! and no drifting so far,,,
an air rifle scope is very strong you know,,,but they only cost £150,00p or less for a good one?????
ps,,,,dont buy a tesco scope there cra*y

Siting in scope 2 ft hi at 25 yds no adjustment


well at 25ft you will run out of drop, its all down to how high the scope is above the barrel when its fitted to the rifle a 30-06 should be set up over 100 yds and shooting out that far it will be shooting low,,your rifle will shoot right out to 1000yds so you will get about 5ft drop out that far,,,and by the way,,,its very very dangers to discharge your rifle into a sand bag closer that 30 yds,, you may well get hit by a bit of the bullet jacket being striped off the bullet and coming back at you so done do it, right! shoot it over 100yds
however if its still shooting hight at say 50yds the only way to drop the point of aim is pack out the front of the scope mount with a strip of 35mm film slip it under the front ring (not the eye end) and sit the scope on it then do up the screws to nip it up this will lift up the front of the scope and it will shoot lower,,also if you were to put a strip under the eye end it razes the point of aim, i do this often for the members of my club on much biger rifles than 30-06's
and they dont drift or move off aim its a cheap fix, or you need a new mount?

How to use open sights on sks rifle... is it in meters or yards,,and does the 30 on sight mean 30 yards or 300 yards....hope you can help thanks bill...


all my SKS are set up in meters. 100 meters =110 yards (not exact but close for open sights) 200M=220Y,300=330 ect. 300 meters is max std. range for 7.62x39mm for battlefield use. 100 is about max for use on deer for a reasonabley clean kill,IF YOU MAKE A GOOD HIT ! Also I dont use hollowpoint rounds on deer in this load, not good penitration if heavy bone is hit. Use pointed soft point for better results on deer. learned from exp. in using it. HP. rounds tend to explode on surface or 1 inch in.

Windage and elevation adjustment all over the place


Sounds like you want to "re-sight" in your rifle. Make sure mounts are okay and tight. Look down barrel and then thru scope and eyeball windage and elevation adjustments so the scope seems to be fairly in line.

Clean barrel if it needs it.

For basic sight in, start at 25 yards with a large(3 to 4 feet) cardboard or wood backdrop around target (bullseye). Fire at target. Once done, look through scope and position rifle such that the shot mark you created is dead zero. Hold rifle very steady and you or buddy move windage and elevation adjustments until scope moves dead zero back toward original target (bullseye). Fine tune from there. Air cool rifle between rounds. Once dead eye, fire another round or two to check grouping. Check your ballistics (sometimes on ammo box) to see how height at 25 yards affects your desired dead on target (100 yards, 150 yards, 250 yards etc.). Adjust accordingly. Example: you may need to sight in at an inch high at 25 yards, depending on your dead on target distance..

Always remove sling from barrel when sighting in.

Try to sight in at similar temperature as you intended shooting temperatures, if possible.

If not black powder, avoid cleaning barrel between sight in and hunt/competition unless you note bad buildup inside.

If you change ammo, understand that that may affect performance. Once a preferred ammo is found, some even try to buy a decent quantity with the same lot number on the boxes if storage allows for such.

Having Trouble Dialing in New Air Rifle Scope


I had the same problem.. shimmed the rear ring by folding some aluminum foil and lining the whole bottom part of the ring. I think after all was said and done, the aluminum was about 12 slices thick. This gave me a little bit of elevation to play with.
