SOURCE: 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.

sounds like it could be the scope more than any thing but shoot at 100 yd 5 shot group and see if it groups if if shots dance around on target make shure your mounts are tight there is time that companys send screws for the mounts that are to long for the holes that are taped in the gun the mount mite feel tight but could have play yet witch make your gun not shoot well you could also try setting the scope on 4 power shoot a shot at 50 yards then crank it up to 9 power shoot a shot if bullet impact moves it is the scope hope i helped ya out and good luck

SOURCE: siting in scope 2 ft hi at 25 yds no adjustment

well at 25ft you will run out of drop, its all down to how high the scope is above the barrel when its fitted to the rifle a 30-06 should be set up over 100 yds and shooting out that far it will be shooting low,,your rifle will shoot right out to 1000yds so you will get about 5ft drop out that far,,,and by the way,,,its very very dangers to discharge your rifle into a sand bag closer that 30 yds,, you may well get hit by a bit of the bullet jacket being striped off the bullet and coming back at you so done do it, right! shoot it over 100yds
however if its still shooting hight at say 50yds the only way to drop the point of aim is pack out the front of the scope mount with a strip of 35mm film slip it under the front ring (not the eye end) and sit the scope on it then do up the screws to nip it up this will lift up the front of the scope and it will shoot lower,,also if you were to put a strip under the eye end it razes the point of aim, i do this often for the members of my club on much biger rifles than 30-06's
and they dont drift or move off aim its a cheap fix, or you need a new mount?

Sight in


Depends totally on the ammunition you use. It will be markedly different for a light loaded heavy bullet .38 special as compared to a fast light bullet .357. The difference could be measured in feet rather than inches at 100 yards.

There are several ballistics programs on the internet that will help you with this, but you need to know things like bullet speed, ballistic coefficient, distance, etc. to use them effectively. Something as simple as a call to the ammunition manufacturer could answer your question quickly. Just ask them the drop of the bullet at 25 and 100 yards and adjust your sights using that information.

Leupold VX II 3x9x50mm scope on a rem. 270. One year old. Worked fine last year. Sighted in last week at range. Windage was dead on. Wanted to move up 1 inch in hieght at 25 yards. Tried to adjust hieght...


16 clicks is about 4" at 100 yards not 25. did you try shooting it at 100 yards? remember the scope is mounted at least an inch and probably higher than that above the barrel. at close range you will always hit low with a scope because the bullet has to climb at least an inch or more before it will be right on at 25 yards. if it is dead on at 25 it should hit way high at 100. (or the scope/ mounts are bad).

I was sitten my gun in . i was 1 inch low i moved it 8 clicks up shot. didnt move 8 more clicks up baerly moved then 16 way too much 8 inches too high


sounds like a sticky scope,,,,,1 click is 1/8 or 1/4 in over 100 yds,,,so 1 inch low should be no more than 4 to 8 clicks up? if the scope stuck down 32 clicks would put it 8 inches hight?

HAVE A PRONGHORN TASCO MOUNTED ON SAVAGE 22 BOLT. SIGHTS IN OKAY AT 10 YARDS AND THEN IS HIGH AT 25. IS THERE AN ADJUSTMENT INTERNALLY IN SCOPE TO FIX THIS?


No, this is not a scope issue. The scope is raised above the centerline of the barrel, thus at 10 yards, the barrell is actually slightly raised in relation to the centerline of the scope in order to hit your point of aim. Since the front of the barrel is slightly inclined, at 25 yards the bullet is still rising in relation to the scope alignment. Backing up to 50 yards you will begin to see the bullet start to drop back down, at 100 yards it may drop as much as 8-10 inches, and at 200 yards, it may drop as much as 52 inches. This is assuming that you are shooting a standard velocity .22 long rifle cartridge (1050 feet per second or so).

Scope is maxed out for adjustment, is till shooting low dav


if your scope is shooting low and you dont wont to buy a new set of mounts the only way to lift the point of aim is to pack out the eye end of the scope mount with 35mm film or a soft type of shim that wont scrach your scope i use 35mm film at its mostly water proof but there are other shims that do the same thing put about 25th of an inch under the eye end between the scope mount and the scope this will lift the "bell end" up and lower the point of aim there by rasing the impact point of your bullets dont over do this idear as if you go to far you wont get the turrets to drop the point of impact and you could also bend the scope, but 25th of an inch is not a lot but its over 10 inches at 100 yds with a .22 rim fire rifle
good luck shoot safely and good hunting

I used all of the elevation adjustment on 3-9-50mm scope and my 22 rifle still shoots low at 25 yards


its a bad mount thats doing this,,,you can get over it easly by letting off the rear top mount of the scope (the mount near your eye) and pushing under your scope a strip of 35mm film this will lift the eye end of the scope giving you more range,,(elevation) only put 2 or 3 strips of film under the scope any more that this could bend the scope tube when you tighten it up
but a strip of film is about 25th of an inch and 1th will give you 1/4 of an inch at 100 yds ie:1 click! so you should easly get 10 inches at 100 yds or more with 3 strips of 35mm film under the scope even with bullet drop, the only other way to sort this out is to buy an adjusterbal mount witch is very pricy and 35mm film is cheaper, i do this all the time with my scopes

I have a weaver k-8 scope with adj. rings on front bezel ??????


the front ring is for adjusting point of impact at a given range,,,its called a "parallax ajustment" it corrects for the scopes inaccuracies over its full range say from 10 yds to 100 yds there a bit of a pain on a hunting rifle as you need to focus them every time and that slows down your shooting, when only a snap shot will get the kill you cant wate to mess about focusing the darm scope so i never use them on my rifles,,unless im target shooing,, or im snipping when i have time to take my shot,,,
(a head shot only!) only a parallax scope is spot on aim from 10yds to infinity
