Question about Optics
I have a leopers scope and the crosshair will not raise up and down and there is no lock on it to unlock it.
The cross hair is located in an erector tube and will not move in your view even when the point of impact moves.

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.

Looking for instructions on the use of an Acu-trac rifle scope by Redfield. There are lines above the crosshairs and a yardage graph on the bottom of the crosshairs.

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.

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.
