SOURCE: Ruger 10/22 Scope problem

This happens will all firearms. what happens when the bullet leaves the bullet is a decieving "rise" of the bullet. The reason for this is the Line of Sight (Scope View), angles down and away from the Line of Departure (Barrel). The bullet actually never rises and is in fact continally falling away from your rifles Line of Departure but because this is higher than the Line of Sight the bullet seems to Rise than fall to the set distance in the scope (i mention set distance and not zero because you can change your Minutes of Angle on your scope to increase and decrease range)

http://www.rifleshootermag.com/shooting_tips/ballistics_0303/

this is a chart that illustrates what i just said.

now that you understand that you should take a good read into Exterior Ballistics. this is the Mathematics of your fireamrs trajectory ( I say your firearms because your bullet's flight depends on the length of the barel which will vary from gun to gun) this science of shooting will teach you how to understand bullet Grain and Volume relations. understanding the Feet per second of your rounds and how the affects you. teach you about shooting in high pressure and low pressure environments and extremly windy environment.

now there is alot of math to all of this and its hard to find it all on the net and if your not that great at math you can do what i do bc im lazy and im not a sniper im just a hobby kinda guy. '

Sierra Infinity V 6 Ballistics Software. I dl'd mine off the net you might have to buy it depending on how resourceful you are. it is well worth the buy. You can punch in the daily variables (Barometric Pressure, Temp, Humidity, and Altitude) (of couse with your bullet as well) and it will give you a "Cheat Sheet" for those conditions stating Windage and Elevation adjustments per decided incriment (50 yrds is standard) then you take that to the range and (bring a laptop if you got it and arent embarrased (som1 might even help you tune in the variables) hope this helps if not ill check back in a bit to see how you did

SOURCE: how to sight scope in /what scope do i have ?

Real simple Scott.
You can 'Zero' your scope/rifle even if you don't have a laser bore-scope device.
All this is assuming that your used rifle has not had the barrel shot out and that the head-space is still within specs for that rifle. Have all this checked by a gunsmith first. You can dress up a piece of poop and it will be pretty, but still be poop. Make sure yours isn't to begin with. As for the scope, it's hard to tell unless there's obvious damage or it's an antique past it's prime. Try to get as good a quality scope as possible to start with. You would not put one ply tube tires on your mustang and expect to get the best performance, so...
Most rifles are capable of shooting quite accurately, and all things being equal, it's the shooters job of making it happen.
Ammunition should be considered as well. Toss your old military ball ammo and junk from overseas, both of'em. If you want to shoot accurately and consistently, you must spend the bucks for the best ammo you can afford.
You MUST KNOW what the BALLISTICS are for the Cal./type/weight ammo you will be shooting and the corresponding distance it will be shot from.

Make sure your rifle is CLEAN inside and out. A clean rifle is a happy rifle.
Make sure that your rifle 'fits' your body's frame and that you are familiar and practice good rifle shooting techniques.
'Zeroing' is best done from the prone position as that is the most steady position to shoot from.
Do you have a bi-pod attached? Whether you do or not, sandbag your rifle securely but still able to make small adjustments to the rifle position itself.
Set up a target with a 1" black dot at 50rds.
Remove the bolt.
Lay down with your rifle but stay OFF of it, touch it as little as possible at this point.
With out disturbing the rifle look through the bore downrange to your target. Locate the black dot and if necessary adjust your rifle from the **** end until you can see the dot through the bore. Keep making minor adjustments until the dot appears to be centered in the bore. Make sure rifle is secure and steady at this point.
Then without moving or touching the rifle, look through the scope using the correct eye relief distance and locate the black dot. Now using the Vertical(Elevation) and Horizontal(Windage) adjustment knobs, move the reticles(crosshairs) until they both are centered on the dot.
Again look through the bore to make sure that you have not moved the rifle and that the dot is still centered in the bore. If not, adjust the rifle again to center the dot, then go back to the scope and adjust as necessary to move the RETICLES to the center of the dot. It may be necessary to repeat this a few times before you have achieved this particular goal.
You do not mention brand/model of your scope. It probably adjusts the reticle or crosshairs in 1/4minute increments (1/4 inch increments with each individual click movement of the turret knobs at 100 yard distance). IT IS CRITICAL for you to know how your own scope adjusts.
Now, bolt back in and load 3 rounds of quality ammo.
You are going to shoot 3 rounds in succession without getting off the rifle or making any adjustments to the rifle or scope. You are looking for a 3 shot group to determine a rough average of how far and where the rounds are impacting initially. Use good shooting techniques, breath control, relax, sight picture, squeeeeeeze the trigger, follow through the scope, there is no need to take your eye off the scope while doing this, hold your shooting position for all 3 shots.
You will now have to make adjustments of the scope unless you are hitting the black dot already which is quite possible.
Remember that if your scope is a 1/4" adjustment at 100yds, it means that for each 'click' that you adjust either Vertically or Horizontally at 100rds, the reticle/crosshairs will move accordingly 1/4 of an inch Vertically or Horizontally. At 200yds, one click will move it 1/2 inch, at 300yrd it will move it 3/4 of an inch, at 400yrd, it will be 1 inch.
Right now you are at 50yrds distance from your target. Each click from here will move the RETICLES about 1/8 of an inch so estimate the distance that your most central shot of the 3 you fired, is from the black dot and adjust accordingly. You're not moving the RIFLE here, you are simply moving the scope RETICLES so that your point of aim and point of impact coincides.
Now load 3 more rounds of ammo and repeat as above. You should only have to use about 9 rounds to get on target, the black dot.
Once you are hitting the black dot at the 50yrd line, move back to the 100yrd line. Put a fresh black dot on your target and repeat the steps from above. Your first 3 shots from the 100yrd line should be about 1/2 to 1 inch low. Don't follow the bullet strikes! Keep your point of aim and the crosshairs ON the black dot no matter where the bullets are striking on the target. Remember, now at 100yrds your RETICLES will move 1/4inch with each 'click' of adjustment of the turret knobs.
Adjust the scope as needed at this point. Once you are 'ON TARGET'(hitting the black dot), you now have your 100yrd. 'ZERO'.
Now that you have this 100yrd ZERO, you must loosen the turret knobs , both the Vertical(Elevation) and the Horizontal(Windage) turrets and align the '0' on the knobs with the '0' on the scope at the base of each knob. Now tighten the set screws and you are set to go. If you want to know your 200yrd 'ZERO', simply move back to the 200yrd line, your 'come-up' or elevation adjustment should be about 7-9 clicks, at least for .308 168grn HPBT, but you will figure it out for the Cal./brand/wght ammo you are using. WHATEVER the 'come-up' you need to make at 200, 300,400yrds or wherever, be sure to make note of the number of clicks you used to find the Zero for that distance. Use a fine point endelible marker and actually write the ZERO info on thestock of your rifle. You don't need to mark anything for the 100yrd ZERO, it's a given already. Write; 200/9, 300/18 and so on. You should also get your ZERO for the intermidiate, 150yrd, 250yrds etc, distances as well.
Remember that weather conditions, source and intesity of light conditions, your own body condition at any particular moment or day can have an affecf on how you and/or your rifle shoot. Good luck.

I had the same problem.. shimmed the rear ring by folding some aluminum foil and lining the whole bottom part of the ring. I think after all was said and done, the aluminum was about 12 slices thick. This gave me a little bit of elevation to play with.

SOURCE: i am trying to bore sight a rifle with a center

When bore sighting you need to adjust in small steps and "TAP" the bore or the main body of your scope to cause a golt, as when shooting your gun it will kick and cause the scope cross hairs to take their set.  Tap it with a med sized screw driver handle. Make a small adjustment and tap it, adjust and tap.

What size rings do i need for this scope


Choosing scope rings involves the following considerations:
1. Get the right diameter. Most scopes are 1.00" in diameter, but not all of them. Measure your scope tube.

2. Mount the scope as close to the barrel as is practical. The closer the axis of the scope is to the axis of the bore, the less error is introduced by canting the rifle.

3. You must have proper eye relief. If you are shooting a high-power rifle, you need at least a couple inches between your face the the end of the scope to allow for recoil. This is less important for low recoil calibers. You must also be able to position the scope so that you get a full field of view when you mount it to your shoulder to shoot. Some rifles, like Ruger #1's are tricky to get right due to the shape of the action. Some rings are offset to provide additional adjustment room.

Pellet will not stay in chamber of pellet gun


The chamber may be worn. The pellet is just big enough to stay in the chamber without falling out. A worn chamber will allow this to happen.

If you simple have the air go right thru each time you pump it, there is a little o-ring between barrel and the chamber, probably the one that needs replaced. Call Crosman and order by phone or go on-line.

How to repair a ruger air hawk .177


well for starters, there is no firing pin, second, without major machinery, you can't fix a spring powered air rifle, any of them. It is impossible, major jigs and fixtures hold these things while the spring is removed and replaced. You might try crossman, they do a lot of repairs.

Why my crosman recruit .177 shoots inconsistently?


I hear that the ammo has alot to do with that. .BB on a unrifled barrel gun are not as good as pellets. Lead pellets ride on the rifling in the barrel. And also your sites could be out of line. One man took the inner barrel out of the outer barrel and bent it over his knee slighty.His rifle was shooting high. On his daisy model # 880 Powerline.. But I would not go that far.A unrifled barrel is best for BB's.only.Hope I can help you out.Yours truly Joseph Alexander Bagli.

How to sight in crosman extreme g1 pellet rifle scope


You would sight in an air rifle scope in the same manner as any other standard scope that you might find on a rifle:

You want to secure the rifle as best you can with the sights pointed towards a target, which should be set at the desired distance.

Reduce the error of your sight adjustments either by mounting the rifle in a gun mount or simply resting the stock (not the barrel!) on a solid surface such as a table.

Make sure that the weight of the rifle is carefully supported and the **** is firmly pressed into your shoulder. Looking through the sights, aim at the very center of the target (which for your purposes can be as simple as a piece of paper with a dot drawn in the middle).

Take time to ensure a careful shot, and be sure to avoid any shaking, utilizing the support of the mount/table (try resting the fore-grip of the stock on a roll of paper towels if you're having trouble keeping the rifle steady).

Once you are confident with the placement of the cross-hairs over the center of the target, gently squeeze (don't pull) the trigger.

Determine where the pellet struck the target, and adjust the scope accordingly; while every scope is a little different, the same basic principles for adjustment apply. Unscrew the caps on the top and side of the scope, and carefully read the markings on the adjustment dials.

If the pellet struck low, twist the dial on the top of the scope 'up' (the markings should specify clockwise/counter), and if the pellet struck high, twist in the opposite direction. If the pellet struck to the left or right, follow the same procedure for the dial on the side of the scope.

If the pellet struck low and to the side, make the vertical (up/down) adjustments first, repeat the shot, and only move on to make adjustments left/right once the pellet strikes in vertical alignment with the center of the target.

Take your time, and adjust in increments of only 2-3 clicks to start. Repeat the procedure until the pellets are striking consistently in the center of the target (if you're having a hard time remembering which shot went where, replace the target and continue.

Once you are satisfied with placement of your shot groupings on the targets, replace the dial covers on the scope.

Tips and Notes:
- In order to maintain the accuracy of your rifle, try to avoid resting the rifle on its scope and try to prevent the barrel from contact.

- Take note of your rifle's range, and be aware that the further away you place the target, the less consistent your results will be.

- Be realistic; don't attempt to sight in an air rifle at 50 yards. Remember that even with a rifle that has been professionally sighted, good results still come down to the accuracy of the shooter.

-Sight in your rifle at a range where you are confident in your own abilities; start with a closer target and only move back (i.e. sight in at a greater distance) if necessary.
