Question about Bushnell Optics
Trying to set elevation adjustment to zero to start over.
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

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.

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.

Go to this link & you will be able to zero it. If you lower the angle of telescope you will be targetting farther. vice versa. firstname.lastname@example.org
