    if you are shooting low shouldn't you move the elevation down? Sometimes you can tap lightly on the adjustments to seat the screws. What yardage are you sighting in at?

Remove the top of the rear scope ring and place a plastic shim UNDER the scope.I use plastic because it is impervious to weather.I usually use clear plastic from a blister pak but even a shim cut from a plastic milk jug will work.I just cut it to size with a pair of scissors.I have done this many times to correct for the mismatch in the height of the rings.

How Do I adjust the sights on my savage 64 LR its shooting High and its brand new


The rear sight has an elevation adjustment that looks like a stepped wedge. To lower the point of impact, you must lower the rear sight. If you have additional steps on the low end of the elevator, make the adjustment by slightly springing the sight up and sliding the elevator to a lower step. If you're on the bottom step, you can get a taller blade for the front sight (preferred) or file the notch deeper into the wedge. Try different types of ammo before making permanent changes. Guns can be picky about their diet.

My Bushnell Banner rifle scope 3x9x40 ia at max elevation and shoots low The scope is used on a marlin 1894c underlever rifle and attached to a weaver rail how can i fix this problem


you might be able to buy a weaver rail adapter that can change your elevation aswell as lift up your scope a bit just to make it a bit easier to see out of. try something like this maybe http://ant-supplies.co.uk/DovetailtoWeaverAdapters.aspx

I have the thompson center muzzleloader trumiph.Having trouble sighting it in,shooting thompson tc bullets 250grain shockwave. with 2 triple 7 pellets and triple 7 209 primer. shoot and hit bulleye...


One thing about muzzle loaders, you should wipe or clean the bore after each shot. You need to find a method that works for you. I have an old CVA and I have to wipe the bore after each shot to keep it accurate, if shooting for fun I do not. But I would use my rod and with one patch in and out just to keep the fowling down.
Lets think of it this way. Even with the new powers they tend to build up. Now this build up causes each shot to have a different pressure and then each shot will run down the bore different. Hence one shot here another there.
Then there is the primer itself, The 209 primer has a very hot flame and can cause a bit of fouling.
See this link. Primers cause accuracy problems. It may help you understand what is going on. But the easy fix is to learn; wipe the bore after each shot. Use the same method to load powder, press the bullet in the bore, seat the bullet on the powder pellets, fire the gun, wipe the bore, start over doing the same steps, same motion, same pressure each time.

New nikon monarch III 4-16x42bdc. elevation is mased at lowest set still bore sighting at 2.25 above 0 with windage centered. actual shot is off target.


have you shot it yet???? dont forget bullet drop!!!! but if it shoots to hight thats easy to put right,,,most of the time its a mount fault, but undo the front of the scope mount and slid 3 bits of 35mm film under the scope then nip the scope down on the film strips,,this will lift the point of aim past what you need,,,,

Cannot get to the bull's eye. rifle shoots 2" to right of bull's eye. after two full turns left on windage - nothing happened. I',m ready to return to the store. Any help???


continue to adjust the wind-age. If your problem persists I would suggest turning both to a random point and re-start sighting the gun. If that does not fix the problem return the sight because this most likely means the wind-age is disconnected.

I zeroed in my 25/06 at 100 yards. at 200 yards 1/4 inch high using 2nd line on drop compensator , at 300 yards shot 41/2 inches high using 3rd line on compensator. What am I ding wrong


It sounds good to me, don't forget, the 25-06 is a flat shooting round, you have your scope pointing up, the bullet crosses the line of sight twice, One at 100 yrds, your zero and the other on it's way down at about 500 yards. You can check the ballistic coefficient of that bullet and see where you need to be zeroing it in at. I would think about 250 yards, will be 1 1/2 low at 100 yards, 3/4 inches low at 200 yards, dead on at 250, then it will start coming down, say 8 inches low at 400 and 18 inches low at 500. Something like that. So your BDC will not be needed till you reach out past 300 yards, which is varmint country stuff. I have my .22 marlin sighted in at 100 yards, and it will put the lights out on anything at that range. You can probably find the charts on line someplace, if you don't have a reloading manual. Check it out.

Scope elevation adjusted allthe way up & still shoots low


Bushnell sells nylon inserts for scope rings that fit inside of the scope rings and will affect the height of the ring to correct the problem. If you install them on the front scope ring, it will correct it and realign the rings correctly. It appears that the front ring towards the muzzle is not as high as the rear ring near the breach. This is why that even though the scope's adjustment is elevated as high as it will go, it is still hitting low because it is actually pointing down because apparently the rear ring is higher off the barrel than the front ring. The Bushnell inserts can correct this.

Cannot sight in riflescope for elevation, adjustment is maxed out


Try reversing the rings. Move the back one to the front, and the front one to the back. Turn your elevation adjustment, back to -0-, and start again.
