Question about Barska Optics Barska 10-40x50 Ao Varmint Riflescope, Black Matte, Mil
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
