Its real simple at the top and on the side of the middle of the scope you will find 2 knobs. unscrew the knobs and you will find 2 flat head screws one for each knob. one will say up with an arrow the other willsay right with an arrow. go to the gun range. set the rifle up on a bench ,fire, adjust the screws up or down left or right until the bullet and the crosshair matches one click of the screw will equal out to 1/4 of an inch adjustment. if you change ammobrands you need to do this will never be perfect but at 100 yards you should get 3 bullets in a 3 inch circle.

My windage has bottomed out to the left, and I still need 6 more inches to zero.

Try this:
If you are at the extreme left adjustment limit..........
turn the l/r dial all the way to the right and count the clicks. Turn the dial back 1/2 the number of clicks counted. you are at center point. Shoot one round at target. Elevation is unchanged and you should be on paper. Put up a 4x4 poster board with a 3 inch black circle as your aim point. Walk the bullet to center of black spot one shot at a time. DO NOT HEAT UP BARREL AND EXPECT ACCURACY!! If this does not work......toss scope and start over!

How to adjust rifle scope

You need to sight in the scope and rifle to 100 yards then reset the dial making sure the knob as the manual says
do a check sight in
Then you turn on the electronics
the drop number you input is 112 and the BC is 55
as you haven't given an altitude for sight in or shoot site I have allowed for them being equal
you now shoot at a target at 400 yards and for each inch below or above the aim point add or subtract 6 from the drop number
drop number entered is 112 and your shot is 4 inches low
4x6=24 so your new drop number is 136
and if 4 inches high the drop number is 4x-6=-24 new drop number 88 so you now change the inputted drop number to the ones you have and shoot a few groups at 400 to confirm point of impact and aim point and adjust accordingly
Forgot to explain that the 112 drop number is the calculated drop for your round at 750 yards and that you are changing it by confirming the actual drop at 400 and the scope is calculating internally for 750

Do i have to loosen set screws on turrets to zero scope or do i zero and leave the set screws where they are to shoot at different distances? thx. 6x24x42 varmint with mil dot reticle.

Sight in your scope, Loosen the set screws and zero the dials the re-set the set screws. This will make it easy for you to adjust for distance and wind from the zero setting when in the field shooting. Then you can go back to your zero.

Very blury above 10 x no mater how i ajust it and hard to veiw target nikon 8426 6- 24x50 bdc brand new

If you are trying to focus at a relatively close distance, you may be overpowering the scopes ability to focus at that distance. Most rifle scopes are set to parralax free at 100 yards.You can see this effect by putting the scope on its lowest power, focusing at 25-50 yards, and then increasing the power setting. You will see the image go out of focus as the power increases. This simply means that you must shoot at longer distances in order to use the scope to its full potential.

The other problem may be your parallax adjustment, but you may have already tried that solution.If not, make sure that the adjustment dial is set at the distance you are trying to shoot (minor adjustment from the indicated setting may be required to fine tune the image).

Moa not true past 300yds tasco 6x24x42mm

The Tasco is not a 600 yrd scope by any means. If you want to get rid of them, there are plenty of deer hunters who will use it at 100 yards and never go beyond that. The MOA is usually imprinted on the windage dial, it will have a little fraction or a decimal there telling what it is at 100 yards. There are a couple good scopes out there, Nikon and Pentax are decent. Leupold is about the best. It will deliver beyond your eye vision and rifles potential. I have a Bushnell on my M-40, mainly because I can't afford a $1000 scope, but I can shoot door knobs off at 200 yards all day. The scope is a piece of junk, but I have it set up right and it works, Hope this helps.

You may try to bore sight it first. Pull the bolt and setting the gun on a good rest sight thru the barrel at a dot on the wall within ten feet. Then adjust the scope to that dot. As you adjust the scope tap the bore of the scope with a screw driver handle, tap it after each adjustment not hard, but enough to give it a sharp jolt. Once you are close here, move out to the range and shoot at 15 yards. Using a rest, again tap the scope after each adjustment. Then move out to 50 yards and you will want to be shooting high 1.5 to 2 inches here. Shoot slow keep the barrel cool and try for 2 shot groups till you have got the scope dialed in. Then move out to 100 yards for your preference of zero. Remember use the same ammo you will hunt with or at least the same bullet weight. If you can't get her to get on paper you can try to loosen the scope in the rings, one at the time once the gun is a little warm. Loosen the barrel ring first then snug it back down and then the receiver ring. If your group moved now, she was in a bind due to a cold gun at set up / installation.

If the scope's minimum power isn't 8x then it's broken. Call the customer service rep of the company and see how you can return it. Depending on the warranty they may fix it or replace it. I'm not familiar with Balfor as I don't shoot BB guns. You can move the ring around a bit, see if something loosens up, but don't force it.
