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.

Re: cross hairs are tilted to right while scope is...
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.

That is a parallax adjustment. You set it for the distance you are shooting at. It appears to be marked in both yards and meters. This adjustment assures the reticle does not appear to move when your eye is moved slightly from side-to-side. Set it for 200 and look at a target at 50 and move your head very slightly side-to-side and you will see the difference.
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.
usually side. best thing to do is go to an indoor range and sight it in. Just know the ballistic for the round/weapon you are shooting. ie. An M-16 has the same trajectory at 36 yds as 300, that way you can sight in at 36yds.
Hi type into Google, Zeroing a Telescopic Rifle site, Shooters have there own ways of doing it but you will find what is best for you depending on what type of rifle you will be using. If you are fitting it to a Air Rifle. You could Type in Zeroing telescopic site for Air Rifles.
Hope this helps
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.
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.
Are you looking set the eye relief or the focus ring?
For eye relief you need to loosen the scope in the rings, mount the rifle to your shoulder with your standard hold and cheek weld. At this point, slide the scope back and forth in the rings until you obtain a full field of view. Tighten one of the rings slightly, dismount and remount the rifle several times to ensure correct adjustment. Level scope and tighten rings a final time.
For focus adjustment (remember that you are using the eyepiece to focus on the cross hair, not your target!) loosen the lock ring and turn the eyepiece until the cross hair is focused. It is best if you check it several times by closing and opening your eye several times. The crosshair should be instantly in focus. If your eye must adjust, then you need to refocus until the focus is instant.
The two dials on the scope are for adjusting the bullet point of impact. They will typically move POI 1/4 inch at 100 yards.
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.....................
