The cross hair is located in an erector tube and will not move in your view even when the point of impact moves.

SOURCE: crosshairs on pentax 4.5x14x42 don't move

With modern rifle scopes the crosshairs do not move.They are designed so that the crosshairs are always centered.I have not seen a scope with crosshairs that move for about 40 years.If your scope has 1/4 minute clicks, then the strike of the bullet moves 1/4 inch at 100 yards for every click.1 inch for 4 clicks and so on.If you rifle shoots 6 inches high at 100 yards you should turn it down 24 clicks to strike dead on.Many hunters and shooters adjust their scopes to strike 1 1/2 inches high at 100 yards.Then it will be accurate to about 300 yards without further adjustment.

SOURCE: NEED REPLACEMENT PART FOR TASCO 4X15 I NEED THE CROSSHAIR PIECE

im sorry but the price of that scope is not worth getting new crosshairs, you should just go get a new scope at walmart. they are like 9 bucks. But i myself would get a better scope, you can get decent ones for liek 60 bucks. Last a lifetime if you take care of them. The best scopes can cost 800 dollars on up. Just get a new scope. the part would coast more then the scope.

SOURCE: 3-9x50 BSA Deerhunter Rifle Scope.

What that means is they are not mounted correctly. The scope mounts should be square with your rifle when fitted, when the scope is placed into the mounts, it should be turned to be square with the rifle.

Firstly, make sure you do not "cant" when you shoot. That is hold the rifle at an angle instead of vertical. Once you are sure that is OK, then put it into a vice using blanket or some other soft material to protect the stock. Get the rifle perfectly square using a spirit level. There should be a flat spot on the top of the action that you can use. Once this is achieved, you loosen off the scope mounts and square the scope up to your satisfaction. Once done, tighten the mounts up and then remove from the vice.

Can adjust scope low enough


Hey Andy..
The scope won't adjust "lower".. lets talk about what you are calling "lower". The "lower" the "crosshairs" go, the higher the gun shoots...and to the opposite end...the "higher" the "crosshairs", the lower the gun shoots...

If the barrel and the scope are perfectly parallel.. when you lower the crosshairs in the front of the scope, the barrel will/must be raised to hit the same spot.. and the opposite is true for the other direction...

......IF this is what your are experiencing,, no biggie..

If this situation above is NOT what you are experiencing, the scope mounts need to be "adjusted" or replaced..

My elevaition crosshair wont raise high enough to raise my point of impact


your crosshair actually needs to go lower to raise the point of impact. if thats what you meant than you have a mounting/scope problem. the scope should naturally align within the adjustment range assuming the mounts are correct and the scope is functioning and mounted properly.

To raise the point of impact, turn the elevation screw counterclockwise. To shift left, turn windage screw clockwise. If you raise the horizontal cross hair you will lower the point of impact of the bullet. If you move the vertical cross hair to the right the shot placement will go to the left. Make small adjustments tap the scope with a screwdriver handle to give it a shock, not to hard to help move the cross hairs and try to bore sight first. Hope this helps Fix ya up.

When I raise the cross hairs on the scope on the graft the bullet goes down and when i lower the cross hairs the bullet goes up is this correct. When I bought my pursuit boar sight from Basspro I only...


That is right. If you had the rifle held in a vice aimed at a particular point and without moving the rifle you raised the cross hairs you would now be aiming above the point. To get your aim back onto the same spot you would have to loosen the vice and lower the barrel of the rifle. This would mean that the next shot would hit the target lower down. The same is true if you lower the crosshairs which means the bullet would rise.
Likewise moving the crosshairs to the left brings your shot to the right and moving them right brings your shot to the left.
