SOURCE: scope for ruger 10/22 carbine

Google SWFA ......they sell about 20 different brands of riflescopes, with pix, desriptions and prices. It's a good source for info, even if you decide to buy one of the same scopes at Walmart. Check out the Bushnell Trophy, Nikon Prostaff, and Tasco scopes, in particular.

Also, there is a website I belong to, originally started just for the Ruger 10/22 owners/fans. You can visit it and join for free at - www.RimfireCentral.com
We have a great bunch of guys and gals there, who can help you with questions on ANY type rimfire rifle. I'm sure you will love this site.

SOURCE: Cannot sight in riflescope for elevation, adjustment is maxed out

Try reversing the rings. Move the back one to the front, and the front one to the back. Turn your elevation adjustment, back to -0-, and start again.

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)

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: Bushnell Banner .22 scope with loose part inside.

It would be better to replace the minute you disassemble a scope unless resealed with special equipment it will never function as well nor will it be reliable and for a bushnell by time you payed for shipping to and from a repair place you'd be at cost of new so might as get new one which has newer glass types that are vastly better than 20 yrs ago

SOURCE: Elevation cap srew broke, Bushnell Banner, 20 yrs old 3x9x38

Would you believe the exact same thing happened to me yesterday?
I just went on line to get part number for plastic part and this is what i see. Disappointed I am. So i will fix in my own way - If you have the old cap drill out the stem and leave a hole where the thread was and buy a "short" 1/4 20 bolt and nut and use to secure cap to scope - i.e screw in bolt thru cap and snub cap with locknut to grip bullet drop compensator ring. This assumes screw is 1/4 20 as indicated. If not Bushnell may be able to provide thread type or hardware store may have a range of bolts - pitch till you win - Some camera tripod screws are 1/4 20 with nerled nobs this may also work but you should be able to get er back better than new - paint the screw & nut black
I agree scope is too good to discard and was disappointed Bushnell was not more helpful
Let me know if this works for you - i have not done yet -

Which direction do you turn windage and elevation


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.

Sight adjustments


It's a common misconception that you are moving the bullet's impact on the target... the bullet is hitting where the rifle is pointing and you want to get the scope to look at that very same spot.
To move the scope's reticle up or down, turn the elevation adjustment on the TOP of the scope in the direction you want the scope to look, so if your shooting low, turn the scope's adjustment in the DOWN direction.
If you want to move the direction the scope is looking left or right, turn the windage adjustment on the RIGHT side of the scope left or right to look where the bullet is impacting. To move the crosshairs to the right, turn it right.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

Umm ok im new to sighting scopes i usally dont use scops for deer hunting but this year i am shooting up to around 100-450 yards...well i can sight one in but how do i shoot at a deer at farther ranges...


Learn your round, the key to long shots are in the bullets you chose. How much drop out to 400 yards. Shooting a 22 LR at 100 yards will teach you how to factor in for bullet drop. Most 22's will drop 6-8 inches out at 100 yards, then you have to deal with the wind, pratice with a good 22. Now on to your scope, if you have say, a 30-06 sight it in at 4x dead on to 125 yards. you will be high at 60 - 75 yards and low at 200 yards. Sight it dead on at 150 you will shoot high at 100 yards. so on so no. Best is dead on at 150., w/4x. Leave it a 4 power till you need more. Now turning up the power will move the point of impact a bit you have to learn how much by doing (pratice), shoot out there to see what she does, and then you know. Then you have to deal with a cold gun, she will shoot different cold. The key to a good clean kill is to know your gun and how she shoots, where, when, cold, hot, wet, dry. Low light, bright light even will make a difference how you see the cross hairs where on the target. Next, your cross hairs have a built in range finder, they have a wide line that tapers down to fine, this is a good way to tell how far away something is get a paper plate and paint it red. put it out at 100 yards that is a good kill zone for a good sized deer. Look at the plate through the scope and judge your spot for 100 yards. 4x, 6x, 9x. you then can guess your distance to deer by looking at the cross hairs step down. Deer chest is ruff the same size as the plate. Good hunting, I want to see a picture of all you take this year.

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. :)

Instruction manual for 1970's custom .22 scope with BDC


Hold the outer portion of the elevation knob and unscrew the screw on top. then pull up on the outer portion and you'll see a silver screw marked with an arrow and the word "Up". Sight the rifle at a known distance and then line up the knob with that distance as you push it down on the scope and replace the screw. I have one of these and figured this out on my own, however I'm missing the mount and would like some pictures and dimensions of the mount if any of you can get some. I'm gonna be machining a new one and would like to keep it as close to the original as possible.
