Cross hairs are tilted to right while scope is straight

After sighting my rifle in at the range then going to the hunting camp I
shoot three rounds to make sure it was still good.
The next morning I shot my deer after that the cross hairs were tilted
to the right while scope remained straight with rifle.

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.

How to use redfieeld 3x9x42 scope


Depends on the scope and rifle type to which it is attached.
I invested in an inexpensive laser bore such as this one for an AR: SightMark AccuDot Laser Bore Sight - 223 Model SM39001 (for AR-15)
Once the scope is mounted properly, and assuming you have not made any vertical or horizontal adjustments, set the rifle on a stable platform, insert the bore sight, point it at a target 50 (rimfire) to 100 (AR) yards out (works best in low light situation).
Once you have the laser centered on your target, make elevation and windage adjustments as necessary placing the scope cross hairs over the laser. Remove the bore sight and fire 3 rounds, then fine tune elevation and windage.

How do you make adjustments, towards the shot or towards center of the target?


You move the cross hairs to the shot. Set up your gun on a bench and start by firing at a target out at about 15 yards. Once you are "on paper" set your cross hairs on the center and fire a 3 shot group Adjust the scope to the group. if the group is down 3 inch and left 4 inch. Adjust your scope accordingly. Then Fire another 3 shot group, until you are shooting center. Every time you adjust your scope tap the barrel of the scope with a screwdriver handle to keep the cross hairs from sticking. Once on at 15 yards move out to your max range and adjust to that.

When I turn the turrets they go in the reverse direction, WHY


To raise the point of impact, turn the elevation screw counterclockwise. To shift left, turn windage screw clockwise. If you raise the horizontal cross hair you will lower the point of impact of the bullet. If you move the vertical cross hair to the right the shot placement will go to the left. Thats just the way it works. Point your right index finger at a spot on the wall, and sight down your finger like looking at sights, then take your left index finger and pretend it is a horizontal cross hair above your shooting finger, then raise your left finger a set amount above the right, then move your hands back to the shooting position not changing the distance in between, using your left finger now as the sight. You will see your shooting finger is now pointing lower than before. This is now the new point of impact, lower not higher. Hope this is clear as mud and helps Fix Ya up.

How to sight in a z6 swarovski scope 10x42


the easy way is bore sight it,,,,,first clamp the rifle in a stand and look down the barrel at some thing like a post top at say 100 yds when you see the post top in the bore dont move the rifle any more till you have tweeked your scope so the cross is on the top of the post top,,,the rifle is then bore sighted,,,now clamp the rifle down and test fire it,,,it will likley shoot low,,,so tweek it till it shoots right,,,,you should get it spot on in less than 5 rounds,,,dont try to hand hold your rifle when zeroing,,,you need to get rid of as many wobbley bits as you can,,,gees whats the bigest wobbley bit?,,,,yep we are? so clamp it down till it shoots right! also dont fire more than 5 shots or you will get your barrel hot and this changes the point of aim,,,in a sporting rifle???

I just bought this bsa deerhunter with the rear adjustment. I have never sighted in one before. What is the best way to sight in this type of scope and what is the rear adjustment for?


start off shooting at a range of 20yds no more off a bench rest
when you have a zero move back to 50yds you will find it will shoot bepending on the gun highter or lower but in line its just a mater of putting the cross on the target shooting a round and without moving the gun at all, move the cross over the hit from the bullet strike,,,thats it then its zerod

CAN NOT ZERO GUN


You may try to bore sight it first. Pull the bolt and setting the gun on a good rest sight thru the barrel at a dot on the wall within ten feet. Then adjust the scope to that dot. As you adjust the scope tap the bore of the scope with a screw driver handle, tap it after each adjustment not hard, but enough to give it a sharp jolt. Once you are close here, move out to the range and shoot at 15 yards. Using a rest, again tap the scope after each adjustment. Then move out to 50 yards and you will want to be shooting high 1.5 to 2 inches here. Shoot slow keep the barrel cool and try for 2 shot groups till you have got the scope dialed in. Then move out to 100 yards for your preference of zero. Remember use the same ammo you will hunt with or at least the same bullet weight. If you can't get her to get on paper you can try to loosen the scope in the rings, one at the time once the gun is a little warm. Loosen the barrel ring first then snug it back down and then the receiver ring. If your group moved now, she was in a bind due to a cold gun at set up / installation.

Marlin .308 with leopold scope. I've moved the adjustment all the way to the left but still shooting to the right of center??? Could the scope mounting holes on the top of the rifle be crooked? Crooked...


marlin rifles have a right hand twist in them,, they all shoot to the right,,,if you pack out the scope mount with a strip of old 35mm film on the right hand side of the scope body and reclamp the scope you should have the cross hair more to the right side

I have a Bushnell Elite 4200 6x24x40 rifle scope 42-6242M


First is to try for a group, do not adjust the scope in any way. Shoot 4 rounds with out adjusting the scope. The gun should settle down and start to group. If you can not get a group in 6 rounds go clean that gun & check your ammo. Start over. If she does not group, its the gun not the scope. Once it starts to group move the cross hairs in the opp direction small clicks and "TAP' the scope after each adjustment. Shoot for a group each time 2 rounds should group. Get a target that has a grid to help get on faster.

Cross hairs keep turning


I don't shoot BB guns, but I looked up your gun/scope combo. It' a $65 Chinese product. At this price level you cannot expect a decent scope or rifle. It just can't be done. The scope will not be worth fixing.
