If you want to center the cross hair in the scope
Rotate elevation down to it stops then count up clicks to it stops then half number and rotate down that number then repeat with windage or you could use two v blocks and view a point through the scope and rotate scope and adjust cross hair until no deviation from a fixed point up or down left or right
Hope this helps

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: windage and elevation adjustment all over the place

Sounds like you want to "re-sight" in your rifle. Make sure mounts are okay and tight. Look down barrel and then thru scope and eyeball windage and elevation adjustments so the scope seems to be fairly in line.

Clean barrel if it needs it.

For basic sight in, start at 25 yards with a large(3 to 4 feet) cardboard or wood backdrop around target (bullseye). Fire at target. Once done, look through scope and position rifle such that the shot mark you created is dead zero. Hold rifle very steady and you or buddy move windage and elevation adjustments until scope moves dead zero back toward original target (bullseye). Fine tune from there. Air cool rifle between rounds. Once dead eye, fire another round or two to check grouping. Check your ballistics (sometimes on ammo box) to see how height at 25 yards affects your desired dead on target (100 yards, 150 yards, 250 yards etc.). Adjust accordingly. Example: you may need to sight in at an inch high at 25 yards, depending on your dead on target distance..

Always remove sling from barrel when sighting in.

Try to sight in at similar temperature as you intended shooting temperatures, if possible.

If not black powder, avoid cleaning barrel between sight in and hunt/competition unless you note bad buildup inside.

If you change ammo, understand that that may affect performance. Once a preferred ammo is found, some even try to buy a decent quantity with the same lot number on the boxes if storage allows for such.

It sounds as if your Scope rings are out of alignment or the front ring is lower than the rear ring. You may be able raise the bottom of the front ring by inserting a shim under the front ring base.

How to disassemble my bushnell sportsman rifle scopes coz i wnt to clean it


On my Bushnell scope I have an adjustable angle ring that will bring in the view, it is held in place with 1 screw. remove it and pull down towards the windage and elevation adjustment screws. There are 3 tiny phillips screws, remove them. Then unscrew the end of the Eye Peice end peice with the lens in it. inside on the outer edge of the main tube there is a locking ring that keeps the eye peice from unscrewing off, remove it and unscrew the entire eye peice. you are now ready remove the inner tube. Be careful here this is where you can damage the cross hairs and lose the leaf spring that maintains pressure against the windage and elevation screws. When you reassemble after cleaning and with the elevation screw at 12 o'clock and windage screw at 3 o;colck, the leaf spring will be in the 7 or 8 O"clock position, it just sits in there up against a little ridge inside, with the bow facing to the center. Back off the elevation and windage screws all the way so they don't block the inner tube from going in all the way. Once it is in adjust it so the cross hairs are orented correctly and put it back together. If you want to refill with Nitrogen remove the front lense and take to someone that fills tires with Nitrogen and inject the nitrogen into the scope, Quickly reinstall the front lens as nitrogen is about 3% lighter than air and if you take too long it will all escape.
This worked well for me. Good Luck and Happy shooting

Bought a 444 Handi Rifle with a Bushnell 3200 firefly scope on it. Tried to sight it in at 75yds yesterday. I adjusted the elevation up 6 to 8 "inches" and I am not noticing any change. Still shooting low....


O.K Your gun packs a good kick, but you might try to first, tap the scope with the handle of a fair sized screw driver, after each adjustment. Next do not adjust it so many clicks at the time just 3 clicks and see if she moves the point of impact. Try a few clicks and tap the main shaft of the scope kind of rap it then shoot for group, fair 2 rounds to see if it has settled down, then adjust a few, tap and fire. work slow with a older scope and try to stock up on the bullets you decide to go with and zero for them. Any other round you use do not zero, but use go old windage to pratice with.

Scope elevation adjusted allthe way up & still shoots low


Bushnell sells nylon inserts for scope rings that fit inside of the scope rings and will affect the height of the ring to correct the problem. If you install them on the front scope ring, it will correct it and realign the rings correctly. It appears that the front ring towards the muzzle is not as high as the rear ring near the breach. This is why that even though the scope's adjustment is elevated as high as it will go, it is still hitting low because it is actually pointing down because apparently the rear ring is higher off the barrel than the front ring. The Bushnell inserts can correct this.

Is this going make diffirents in at the Range or on the hunt?


Your problem is in the bases/rings. Remove the scope from the rings. Lay a straight edge in the bottom of the rings. The straight edge should touch both rings equally. If i understand you right, you have run out of adjustment up. If so, there will be a gap on the front ring. Verify that you have the correct bases for your rifle first of all. Then, depending on the rifle, you may be able to swap the front and rear bases/rings and correct the problem. Check alignment as above. NOTE: After rings are corrected, re-center scope elevation. Turn elevation screw on scope one way untill it stops. Count the clicks as you turn back to the opposite direction. Devide the clicks by two. Turn back the other way by that number. Your scope is now centered. Test fire at 25 yards. When close to zero, move back to 100 yards and fine tune.

Hello, I have a Ruger 10/22 Target rifle with a Bushnell banner scope on it. It seems that the farther the shot the higher it shoots. I am 1'' low at 15 Yds 5 '' high at 50 yards. What the?


Hi.

http://www.rifleshootermag.com/shooting_tips/ballistics_0303/

this explains why the bullet seems to rise and fall at different distances. its not unusuall infact it will happen in 99.9% of firearms unless the firearm is set to a "Flat Trajectory" zero.

It seems like your fairly new to shooting and the "Exterior Ballistics Effects on a Bullets Trajectory"

my suggestion is that you take the time to read and DL or buy this software.

Sierra Infinity V6 Ballistics Software (i Dl'd it) and it is fantastic.
along with that they have a long range shooting simulator that will teach you about the mathematics of shooting and allow you to get some in expensive practice away from the range and prying eyes. This software will teach you to

1) Range a target just by looking at it in the scope
2) determine Elevation adjustments
3) Windage Adjustments
4) Accomodate the most daunting of variables for the amatuer shooter the weather
(any shooter can learn how the gun fires on a perfect day. it takes a good shooter to take into account the Barometrice Pressure, Humidity, Elevation (from sea level), and Temperature. And be able to hit the first time)

Regardless of your skill level this software is indispensable it will teach you the cores you need to know for when your software is broken or your pc is broken or its just not fiesable at the time.
it will increase the range from which you can shoot. (in 4 hrs i was shooting to 6oo yards, in two days 2100 yards)

ill check back incase you need other info like how to determine zero by inches of center

Scope out of elevation adjustment


If you are sure that the scope was mounted correctly to begin with, ie plenty of elevation left THEN you can install a slanted rail that will increase you elevation potential. Of course, that comes at the cost of having less elevation at the lower end.

A second solution is rings, like those by Burris with the plastic inserts. They have an accessory insert kit for these Signature Zee rings that will let you increase your elevation. Rings are ca 30 and the kit'll be ca 10, so 40 total.

If you're just missing a wee bit of elevation you could just lightly shim the scope in your current rings.
