Make sure you rest the air rifle on something soft, like a folded jacket for a rolled up towel.The rifle will always shoot away from a hard surface.If you rest against the side of a tree, it will shoot away from the tree.If you leave your pellets in the sun, and they are warmer than the barrel, they will always shoot high.Good Luck

Does a Simmons model 533940 work on a 7mm Remington


Any scope will work on any gun. Its effectiveness requires your to match capability with need. A rimfire scope is intended for a 50 yard zero. If you expect to do most of your shooting at 50 yards, it will work fine.

Elevation adjustments do not seem to hold or the scope moves slowly over time. I'm not certain. Windage works fine. Looked at manual on the web and the scope must have changed design because not...


Most of the time a scope that creeps off its zero, has a loose mount screw and or loose mounting ring. Check the mounts all screws. Some times the opposite is true. The mounts are to tight and in a bind. Then during firing the receiver heats up an tweaks the scope enough to cause creep. If the scope is always on zero when cold and creeps off after a few shots, she is in a bind. Make all adjustments to the scope base and rings with a cold gun. Loosen the front ring screws first then re-tighten then loosen the rear doing the same. Then try and re-zero the gun. If the gun never comes back to zero, you end one day shooting hi to the right and try again the next day shooting in the same spot try to re-tighten all screws. Screws from mount to gun then scope rings to scope body.

I just bought this bsa deerhunter with the rear adjustment. I have never sighted in one before. What is the best way to sight in this type of scope and what is the rear adjustment for?


start off shooting at a range of 20yds no more off a bench rest
when you have a zero move back to 50yds you will find it will shoot bepending on the gun highter or lower but in line its just a mater of putting the cross on the target shooting a round and without moving the gun at all, move the cross over the hit from the bullet strike,,,thats it then its zerod

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.

CAN NOT ZERO GUN


You may try to bore sight it first. Pull the bolt and setting the gun on a good rest sight thru the barrel at a dot on the wall within ten feet. Then adjust the scope to that dot. As you adjust the scope tap the bore of the scope with a screw driver handle, tap it after each adjustment not hard, but enough to give it a sharp jolt. Once you are close here, move out to the range and shoot at 15 yards. Using a rest, again tap the scope after each adjustment. Then move out to 50 yards and you will want to be shooting high 1.5 to 2 inches here. Shoot slow keep the barrel cool and try for 2 shot groups till you have got the scope dialed in. Then move out to 100 yards for your preference of zero. Remember use the same ammo you will hunt with or at least the same bullet weight. If you can't get her to get on paper you can try to loosen the scope in the rings, one at the time once the gun is a little warm. Loosen the barrel ring first then snug it back down and then the receiver ring. If your group moved now, she was in a bind due to a cold gun at set up / installation.

Will my scope remain zeroed at different distances?


You need to look at your bullet ballistics, Most guns should shoot dead on at say 15 - 17 yards out, to be on center at 100. Line of sight is straight the bullet must go over the line of sight to come back down and cross again so far out -- make sense? So no you will be a little high at 100 but may be close at 130 - 150. Ck on line for your ballistics with the bullet manufacture.

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.

Sighting in, clicks don't move where they're supposed to.


Ja, it's 1/4 M.O.A, so at 25 yards/meter it'll be ca 3 inches. You may have gone in the wrong direction. That is, if it was 3' high, and you went another 3 higher then you'd be at the top of the paper. Probably you've got it figured out by now.

The easiest, fastest, cheapest way to zero is with a rifle rest you can clamp your scope into, or alternatively somehow immobilize your rifle some other way. You take a shot, at 25 yards or so. It makes a hole. You now immobilize the rifle, via your rest or heavy sandbags, with the scope pointing exactly where you aimed before. You now, carefully and without moving the rifle/scope off of the point of aim, dial your reticle to point at the actual bullet hole. Your next shot will be at your point of aim now. So you just put it at the right height above your point of aim at 100 yards now.
