SOURCE: i just bought a rifle with one on it. exactly how

the adjustment on the front eye PC is your zoom.
for your wind edge you have a series of numbers.
some scopes differ some read 5,10,15,etc
some read 1,2,3,4 etc, the # are estimated wind speed,left or right.if the wind isn't blowing set it on 0.
for your elevation you will have a series of #'s
50,75,100,etc.this is your yard edge sight it in at 75 yrd's and if what your shooting at is 100 yards just turn the knob to the correct setting.good luck

SOURCE: got moisture in scope and it is fogged up

take it into a camera shop, they will have the tool,, but if you undo the scope it will need to be regased again the "o"ring seals have worn out or broken and thats how water got into it,, it also let the nitrogen out of it,,,if its a cheepy scope buy a new one,,,
what i mean by a cheepy is less than £1000,,,,

SOURCE: I used all of the elevation adjustment on 3-9-50mm

its a bad mount thats doing this,,,you can get over it easly by letting off the rear top mount of the scope (the mount near your eye) and pushing under your scope a strip of 35mm film this will lift the eye end of the scope giving you more range,,(elevation) only put 2 or 3 strips of film under the scope any more that this could bend the scope tube when you tighten it up
but a strip of film is about 25th of an inch and 1th will give you 1/4 of an inch at 100 yds ie:1 click! so you should easly get 10 inches at 100 yds or more with 3 strips of 35mm film under the scope even with bullet drop, the only other way to sort this out is to buy an adjusterbal mount witch is very pricy and 35mm film is cheaper, i do this all the time with my scopes

A quick and easy way to bore sight your rifle, if it is bolt action only, or an AR, mount the rifle in a cardboard box with cutouts so it will sit without tipping, remove the bolt and sight down the bore at a target 100 yards away, a mail box, or the corner of a building, make sure the rifle doesn't move, then peek through the scope, it should be seeing the same target your bore is seeing, if not, adjust your scope to it, if it won't travel that far, shim the front with pieces of 35 mm film. then check it again, if you can get it to stay there, it will put your bullet on paper at 100 yards.

I dont understand what the extra dial on my new 6-18x44 scope is for or how to use it.Or what range evry line and dot in the reticule should be ranged in at.


The third turret is for parallax and approximate range
And the lines on the reticule are round and velocity specific plus magnification comes into the distances between substension
On my scope 100 yard zero the next substension down is 176 yards at 10 magnification
The best way to use the reticule for ranging is to get a ballistics program and enter rifle round and scope stats and get a chart for that round and reticule
And the drop chart will change for different velocities and ballistic coefficients of rounds and temperatures a summer chart will be different to a winter chart due to denser air in the cold

How do i use a tasco 28A


1. Insert the Bore Stud into the Stanchion while aligning the arrows as shows. Insert the assembled scope guide into the muzzle of your rifle with the grid pattern upright. 2. Select the Aperture Cap that fits your objective rim. Place it over the objective end of your rifle scope and press until it fits flatly against the rim. 3. Using the Adjustable Scale measure the top of your rifle scope tube to the center of the rifle bore as follows: Open the rifle breach. Rest the upper arm of the scale on the scope tube before or behind the windage and elevation turrets. The scale markings should be facing towards you reading vertically and ascending from bottom to top. Slide the lower end of the scale up or down until it is touching the center point of the bore. On center fire rifles the center point will be the firing pin. On rimfire models the center will be the shell extractor. Read the number that corresponds to the indicator marked "CF". Make a note of the reading. 4. Aim the rifle toward a light, flatly lit area such as a wall or open sky. Caution: Do Not Look At The Sun As Permanent Eye Injury Could Result. 5. While keeping the riflescope at the right distance to see the full field of view, sight through it on the grid pattern. Move the stanchion right or left until the bold centerline is parallel to the vertical reticule wire. Turn the windage dial right or left until the vertical reticule is aligned with the grid centerline. 6. Use the reading from the scale to align the horizontal reticule wire. Find the numbered horizontal grid line that corresponds to the number on the scale. Turn the elevation dial right or left until the horizontal reticule wire aligns with this corresponding grid line. 7. To make your final zeroing adjustments remove the scope guide from the bore of your rifle. WARNING: FIREING YOUR RIFLE WITHOUT REMOVING THE SCOPE GUIDE MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR RIFLE AND OR CAUSE YOU INJURY At a range or other safe area test fire a group of three rounds of the same type ammunition at a target at least 50 yards away. Refine your scope alignment by adjusting the windage and elevation dials. Move to your desired distance from the target and test fire another group and make your final windage and elevation adjustments. 8. Restore the stud tension by pressing the end of the spring.

Which knob you adjust for drop? What is the left knob for?


If you have 2 knobs, there should be no left knob. If you have a knob on the left, you have it mounted 90 degrees out of alignment. Loosen the rings and turn it 90 degrees clockwise. Once you do that, the knob on the top is the one you will use for elevation.

If you have 3 knobs, the left one is for parallax adjustment, focuses the scope for specific ranges. the top knob is the elevation adjustment in this case also.

I have to use reading glasses to use a simmons blazer rifle scope.....othewise the image is blurry.


You can't see the cross hairs or the whole picture is blurry? I know that the rear ring on the scope will bring the cross hairs into focus, glasses or not, and the scope itself should be clear all the way down, I can't see a thing either without glasses and it has really hampered my shooting. It ain't no fun , it's frustrating. Try turning the rear eyepiece, see what happens, hope this helps.
