SOURCE: I zeroed in my 25/06 at 100 yards. at 200 yards

It sounds good to me, don't forget, the 25-06 is a flat shooting round, you have your scope pointing up, the bullet crosses the line of sight twice, One at 100 yrds, your zero and the other on it's way down at about 500 yards. You can check the ballistic coefficient of that bullet and see where you need to be zeroing it in at. I would think about 250 yards, will be 1 1/2 low at 100 yards, 3/4 inches low at 200 yards, dead on at 250, then it will start coming down, say 8 inches low at 400 and 18 inches low at 500. Something like that. So your BDC will not be needed till you reach out past 300 yards, which is varmint country stuff. I have my .22 marlin sighted in at 100 yards, and it will put the lights out on anything at that range. You can probably find the charts on line someplace, if you don't have a reloading manual. Check it out.

What distance to zero 0.22 rifle ?


When I zeroed mine I did it at 25 yards ironsight, and 50 yards scoped. The effective range isn't that far on the standard .22 but in the end it comes down to personal preference.

How to adjust rifle scope


You need to sight in the scope and rifle to 100 yards then reset the dial making sure the knob as the manual says
do a check sight in
Then you turn on the electronics
the drop number you input is 112 and the BC is 55
as you haven't given an altitude for sight in or shoot site I have allowed for them being equal
you now shoot at a target at 400 yards and for each inch below or above the aim point add or subtract 6 from the drop number
drop number entered is 112 and your shot is 4 inches low
4x6=24 so your new drop number is 136
and if 4 inches high the drop number is 4x-6=-24 new drop number 88 so you now change the inputted drop number to the ones you have and shoot a few groups at 400 to confirm point of impact and aim point and adjust accordingly
Forgot to explain that the 112 drop number is the calculated drop for your round at 750 yards and that you are changing it by confirming the actual drop at 400 and the scope is calculating internally for 750

I zeroed in my 25/06 at 100 yards. at 200 yards 1/4 inch high using 2nd line on drop compensator , at 300 yards shot 41/2 inches high using 3rd line on compensator. What am I ding wrong

My Weaver Classic riflescope is maxxed out for elevation


I don't think the tube holding the cross hairs will go up that high, and shimming the front base, I don't know. What you need is a new cross hair with the dots below the cross, They will raise your line of sight past the 350 zero. Or,,,,, just put the cross at the top of your target, 600 yards without the right scope is a long shot. I hope you have a heavy barrel target rifle in 308 or bigger. My M42 is unbelievable, but, It will shoot better than me all day long and I rarely go over 200 yards. I tried the 600 yard line once, didn't like it. Oh I could hit the target, but I like hitting doorknobs at 200 yards better. What are you shooting anyway? I hope your not trying to stretch out a 223 to the max.

How do I sight this scope. If I set the center mil dot at zero at 100yards,where will the other dots be sighted using a 22/250 with 55 gr. bullets


I think the mildots only go so far, you have to do your homework on these things. Your 22.250 zeroed in at 100 yrds, velocity 3800, drops 7.4 inches at 300 yards, and 37 inches at 500 yards, so your mildots being set at x number of inches per dot, will not hit at 500 yards, your bullet is not enough. Even sighted in at 400 yards, the bullet drops 13.6 inches at 500 yards. But,,, with the same 400 yard zero, at 100,+4.7,200,+7.7,300,+6.6. That is about the flatest you'll get. And your mildots will be set likewise. You know they made the mildot scope for the trajectory of the 308. They changed everything for that bullet.

How to set my bushnell scope 3-9x40 for 200 yards


The Bushnell 3-9X40 has been around for quite some time in several forms, but it is pretty standard to set it like any other scope.

With the gun resting solidly on sand bags or something like a Lead Sled, shoot at a target with a 1" grid on it. Those targets are a free download at http://targetz.com/, but you have to browse to find them. Targets No: 10049 or 10058 are both usable, if you can see a 1" aiming point with a 9 power scope at 200 yards.

With a known point of impact (POI) at 200 yards, you can move the POI to where you want it (inside the caps at the center of the scope, there are adjusting screws or slots). The norm is 1/4" per click (the adjuster can usually be felt to click) at 100 yards or four 1/4" clicks for an inch. At 200 yards, the adjustment will be twice what it is at 100 yards or 1/2" per click.

Make your adjustments, using the grid on the target to tell you how many inches it needs to move, and shoot the target again to confirm the adjustment is correct. It's pretty standard to shoot at least a three shot group to ensure the bullets are reasonably close to each other.

Another method is to set the POI at a certain number of inches high at 100 yards and assume it's right at 200 yards. If the mid range trajectory, for your cartridge, at 200 yards is X inches high at 100 yards, you can set your POI to that X inches high and be pretty close at 200 yards.

When you zoom your scope does the impact point change on the target? is that when you use mil dot?


No, the cross hairs remain fixed. The zoom serves only to magnify the field of view.

I have a Bushnell Sprotiew 4x, 15mm scope mounted on a Mossburg .22 rifle. My shots are hitting left six inches and low. Can you please tell me how to adjust this scope? Thank you.


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. :)
