One of the things about bore sighting is there is no shock to the scope. They are meant to have some shock that goes along with an adjustment. Try smaller adjustments and tap the tube of the scope with a screw driver handle after every adjustment. Not so hard you dent it but hard enough to get stuff moving. Hope this Helps FixYa up.

I got in a tight spot needing a scope last season. I was very short on cash so i bought a 3-9x 50mm cheap Tasco . I sighted it in at 100 yards. I missed the first deer . Two hours later I shot high on...


well one day you may lurn that cheap is cheap! and tasco is rubbish cheap! i would say without dought the cross hair in the scope has shaken apart,,,due to recoil,,,a 30-06 has a big recoil
try holding the rifle stock on your jaw and firing the rifle off?
when or if,, you wake up in hospital with a shaterd jaw and with no teeth left in it you will know then! and cheap tasco scope is an air rifle scope it cant take 2500ft/lbs of recoil???
so it wont take much of a kick to mess it up,,
i put one on a 303 enfield??? i got 3 shots before it fell to bits!
if your going to buy cheap scope's go for nicon gold crown?

Is it possible to adjust the factory setting parallax on Prostaff for air riffle use?


It is possible but not advisable. It should be done by a professional and requires special tools.
If you have a spring loaded gun, the binary recoil will destroy it in short time. If it's a PCP, you want a scope with on-the-fly adjustable parallax for range finding.

My advice would be to change this scope for a dedicated air-rifle scope.

Using the scope


Well if it was a rifle, I would say far away, or you will get a black eye. But the recoil on a pellet rifle is backwards because the spring jerks the rifle forward, and it messes with rifle scopes, they are made to recoil back, But,,, you have a movable eyepiece in the end where you look through and it will make the cross hairs come into focus for your eyes. some one else might find them blurry. The objective lens, should be in focus no matter what. It doesn't move. and no matter what your vision is, you should be able to see clearly. If not, I'm wondering if it is fogged up. Your eye should be about 3inches, + -, Check it out. Hope this helps.

Recoil from 300WSM


Well, it Barska says it's .50 cal proofed, whatever that means. One would presume it could take 30 magnum recoil then.

On the other hand, Barska is a low end quality manufacturer. You cannot expect durability in a low end scope. Of course, you could get lucky.

Unless you're target shooting at an immovable object, 10x - 40x is much more power than you'll ever be able to use. You're much, much better off considering a 4x - 16, for instance, in a higher end scope line than this scope.

Consider that at 40x the exit pupil would only be 1.25 which would make even the highest quality scopes quite dim. Barska won't have be best glass in the world and so would probably be unusable beyond some level like 18x unless in very favorable conditions anyway.

The problem with heavy recoilers and scopes is that the heavier the scope the more likely it is to take damage due to recoil. It's because it hangs out there on those high scope rings, and is heavy.
