    I have a simmons 22 mag rifle scope 511039. I have mounted the scope using the rings provided on a Marlin 925M .22 mag. I am consistently hitting inches to the right of center and I have adjusted the scope as far left as I can, any suggestions.

Keep in mind Diane this is for a set distance. if you are taking a shot at a target further than your are set for (ie a target you wont get 3 shots @) remember how the bullet is travelling as it goes down range

one idea would be to set your rifle up down range and zero it in on a target (preferably paper) now adjust 1 MOA (try and have target @ 100 yards and 200 yards)

see how far the bullet moves for each moa adjustment. then check it against the next range.

this should remain constant @ a set number of inches per 100 yards.

so if you zero in @ 100 yards and then move 1 moa any direction and it adjusts (lets say and hope it is 1.047 inches") then you do the same for 200 yards. it should be twice as much movement. ie 2.094"

once you know what 1 moa represents on your scope you can adjust alot more accurately.

REMEBER the total inches of movement / adjustment per MOA is directly related to range (a precise range helps in shooting) so if your squirrel is 150 yards and your first shot is off 9" to adjust you divide 9" by the inches per moa so 1.5 (150 yards /100) X (Inches per 100 yards per moa you measured hopefully 1.047") its 9" divided by 2x1.047 = 9" / 2.094 = 4.29799

this number needs to be rounded to the nearest click on your scope (most are 1/4 MOA scopes and you can tell by looking at how many clicks/lines are inbewteen each large number on your windage and elevation dials

so to turn this into an adjustment we round 4.29799 to 4.25 which is 4.25 MOA or 17 clicks on a 1/4 min scope.

GL and any questions just post and ill help

not please rate this as fixya :)

Note i can provide EXACT information that would allow you to determine range, and windage and elevation adjustments by looking through scope and estimating range
then factoring in weather variables. NOTE you hafta enjoy math or just want to know how to shoot really well. :)

On the scope there are 2 caps , remove both caps .counterclockwise exposing 2 adjustment screws one will say up and have an arrow pointing which way to turn itfor up other way is down ..the other screw will have an r for right and an arrow pointing that way . left is the other direction since you are shooting left 6 inches i would turn the windage screw half turn to the right fire the rifle see where it hits shooting low adjust other screw up fire and adjust till you get it zeroed in it may take a few shots
adjust accordingly good luck

Hello, I have a Bushnell sportsman 3x9 mounted on a 22. I bought it new last year, but only took it to the range last week. I can't get the left/right cross hairs to move enough. At 25 yards, it shoots 9...


Start buy loosening the scope in the mounts. Loosen the front first to see if it is in a bind (left/right). Tighten it back down but not completely. Loosen the rear looking for some movement or popping sound. If you see a movement or notice some odd thing. check the mounting slots for dirt or dings that may cause an offset to the mount. If all is well. Go and start and zero for 13 - 15 yards. you want to be 1 1/2 inch hi. Now after each shot rap the scope with a screw driver handle or something solid, just to give the scope a shock not hard enough to bend it or dent it but shock it. Large scopes are meant for larger shock than a 22 produces, rapping the scope will help move the cross hairs and settle them in place. Hope this Fixya up. If it does help, please leave a testimonial. Thank you for using Fixya.

Why does my 30 yr old redfield, widefield ,range finder accu-trac scope that has operated great for all these yrs, now I cain,t get it hit in the same zone a target. The rifle is clean and operates great...


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

The is on a 270 it still shooting to the left and there is no more adjustment


the scope mounts are no good then,,,,,but you could try this,,,
cut up 3 bits of 35mm camera film so they will slide behind the scope mount undo the rear scope mount cap (eye end) and slip the film strips into the right side of the mount so they push the rear of the scope over to the left hand side of the mount (as you look at it from the **** end) then nip up the mount cap bolts,,,
this will move the point of aim well over to the "right" some thing like 4-5 inches at 100yds if this still dont line you up,,,
change the scope mounts

Which knob on the bushnell banner scope will raise the bullet when it is hitting six inches low?


It's a common misconception that you are moving the bullet's impact on the target... the bullet is hitting where the rifle is pointing and you want to get the scope to look at that same spot.
To move the scope's reticle up or down, turn the adjustment on the TOP of the cope in the direction you want the scope to look, so if your shooting low, turn the scope's adjustment in the DOWN direction.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

When adjusting for a couple of inches, the next shot is a foot off. It seems to wander all over the target.


! click is 1 inch @ 100 yards, provided you have the correct scope for the rifle.
If you are sighting in a .22 LR 40 grain match velocity bullet for 100 yards, the mid range trajectory (50 Yards) is 6" higher. The bullet has a 6" arc half way to your target. If you are sighting in a .270 with 150 grain blunt tail bullets for 250 yards, the mid range trajectory is .4 higher. It only has 4/10" arc half way.
You most match the scope to the gun, and the 1 click= 1 inch rule will apply. Otherwise, it's lock it into a righd mount, fire it and adjust the scope accordingly. If you want to change the range on the scope, it will be guesswork.
I use a Bushnell Banner 3-9X40 with BDC. If you have BDC, make sure you have the correct distance ring in for the caliber.. It will make all the difference in the world.

Umm ok im new to sighting scopes i usally dont use scops for deer hunting but this year i am shooting up to around 100-450 yards...well i can sight one in but how do i shoot at a deer at farther ranges...


Learn your round, the key to long shots are in the bullets you chose. How much drop out to 400 yards. Shooting a 22 LR at 100 yards will teach you how to factor in for bullet drop. Most 22's will drop 6-8 inches out at 100 yards, then you have to deal with the wind, pratice with a good 22. Now on to your scope, if you have say, a 30-06 sight it in at 4x dead on to 125 yards. you will be high at 60 - 75 yards and low at 200 yards. Sight it dead on at 150 you will shoot high at 100 yards. so on so no. Best is dead on at 150., w/4x. Leave it a 4 power till you need more. Now turning up the power will move the point of impact a bit you have to learn how much by doing (pratice), shoot out there to see what she does, and then you know. Then you have to deal with a cold gun, she will shoot different cold. The key to a good clean kill is to know your gun and how she shoots, where, when, cold, hot, wet, dry. Low light, bright light even will make a difference how you see the cross hairs where on the target. Next, your cross hairs have a built in range finder, they have a wide line that tapers down to fine, this is a good way to tell how far away something is get a paper plate and paint it red. put it out at 100 yards that is a good kill zone for a good sized deer. Look at the plate through the scope and judge your spot for 100 yards. 4x, 6x, 9x. you then can guess your distance to deer by looking at the cross hairs step down. Deer chest is ruff the same size as the plate. Good hunting, I want to see a picture of all you take this year.

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.

Need a manual for a simmons rifle scope model # 1022


When you click on "customer service" on the simmonsoptics.com website, it takes you to the Bushnell customer service web page.

The number for customer service that is given is:

1-888-276-5945

The customer service rep. told me to "go to the Simmons web page".

Which, of course, takes me back to the Bushnell web page. It's a circular race track.......

In my opinion, Simmons/Bushnell has lousy customer service.

I bought a 2nd hand Simmons 3-9X50 scope (model #800479) that needed the screw on caps for the reticle adjustment screws. A small request, I thought.....one that should be easily remedied by calling Simmons/Bushnell customer support.

No dice. Customer support told me to spend $15 to send them the scope, and then they "will have to look around and find something that will fit."

Oh really??? Doesn't Simmons/Bushnell already KNOW the sizes of the parts they have?

Just send me the damn caps. They will cost Simmon/Bushnell no more than a buck apiece.

Then I asked for a user manual for said scope. No dice. The customer support lady told me to find the manual on the Simmons web page.

The Simmons web page doesn't provide user manuals online.

Their customer support needs a lot of improvement.
