The rear sight has an elevation adjustment that looks like a stepped wedge. To lower the point of impact, you must lower the rear sight. If you have additional steps on the low end of the elevator, make the adjustment by slightly springing the sight up and sliding the elevator to a lower step. If you're on the bottom step, you can get a taller blade for the front sight (preferred) or file the notch deeper into the wedge. Try different types of ammo before making permanent changes. Guns can be picky about their diet.

How to just read sights on my tanfaglio .45 . It is shooting low and slightly left.


In the case of a non-user adjustable sight, any adjustment should be entrusted to a qualified and experienced gunsmith, though few hand guns are superbly accurate and part of the skill of using a hand gun is to compensate for sight inaccuracies - knowing it shoots low and left then aiming high and right by the right amount is what it takes...

Why will my model savage 111 not hold zero, I have tried different scopes on it but the vertical will continue to move.


Is it shooting two groups or stringing vertical or changing between shooting sessions?

My rifle is shooting about five inches high. Do I turn the elevation adjustment towards "up" or opposite of "up"?


If you have a scope, the adjustment is under the top cap, and you should turn the adjustment 'down'. If you have iron sights, you would adjust the rear sight in the same direction that you want to move the bullet on the target (also 'down'). The opposite is true if you are adjusting the front sight.

How do I adjust the rear sight on a H&R Model 939 22 LR revolver


Move the rear sight in the direction you want the bullet to move on the target. Shoot groups of at least three and move the group instead of trying to zero on one shot.

What should I zero my scope at when shooting my 7mm savage with 175g remmington core-locts?


Depends on how far you intend to shoot. Most zero their rifles at 100 yards, but if you intend to hunt plains game, you might want to use 200 or so.

HAVE A PRONGHORN TASCO MOUNTED ON SAVAGE 22 BOLT. SIGHTS IN OKAY AT 10 YARDS AND THEN IS HIGH AT 25. IS THERE AN ADJUSTMENT INTERNALLY IN SCOPE TO FIX THIS?


No, this is not a scope issue. The scope is raised above the centerline of the barrel, thus at 10 yards, the barrell is actually slightly raised in relation to the centerline of the scope in order to hit your point of aim. Since the front of the barrel is slightly inclined, at 25 yards the bullet is still rising in relation to the scope alignment. Backing up to 50 yards you will begin to see the bullet start to drop back down, at 100 yards it may drop as much as 8-10 inches, and at 200 yards, it may drop as much as 52 inches. This is assuming that you are shooting a standard velocity .22 long rifle cartridge (1050 feet per second or so).

Keep having to resight scope


Sounds like they are right. The cross hair adjustment mechanism may be defective. I'd call bushnell and see what they can do for you.

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.

Sighting in, clicks don't move where they're supposed to.


Ja, it's 1/4 M.O.A, so at 25 yards/meter it'll be ca 3 inches. You may have gone in the wrong direction. That is, if it was 3' high, and you went another 3 higher then you'd be at the top of the paper. Probably you've got it figured out by now.

The easiest, fastest, cheapest way to zero is with a rifle rest you can clamp your scope into, or alternatively somehow immobilize your rifle some other way. You take a shot, at 25 yards or so. It makes a hole. You now immobilize the rifle, via your rest or heavy sandbags, with the scope pointing exactly where you aimed before. You now, carefully and without moving the rifle/scope off of the point of aim, dial your reticle to point at the actual bullet hole. Your next shot will be at your point of aim now. So you just put it at the right height above your point of aim at 100 yards now.
