The top turret should be the one you need. You should see an U or D with an arrow pointing in one direction or another. Your scope should move the point of impact 1/4 inch at 100 yards for each click. Moving the adjustment 24 clicks in the down direction should fix you up if you are shooting at 100 yards. The movement will be linear for other distances.

Which knob on the bushnell banner scope will raise the bullet when it is hitting six inches low?


It's a common misconception that you are moving the bullet's impact on the target... the bullet is hitting where the rifle is pointing and you want to get the scope to look at that same spot.
To move the scope's reticle up or down, turn the adjustment on the TOP of the cope in the direction you want the scope to look, so if your shooting low, turn the scope's adjustment in the DOWN direction.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

My banner scope in 4 to 12 wii not hold zero


I'd start by looking at the mounting bases.
First tighten the scope ring screws to 25 inch pounds, then loosen and remove the rings from the base(s) while still attached to the scope.
Back out the base screws one at a time, apply low strength thread locking compound and tighten each to 25 inch pounds.
Remount the rings/scope to the bases tightening till snug but not overly tight and sight-in the rifle.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

When adjusting for a couple of inches, the next shot is a foot off. It seems to wander all over the target.


! click is 1 inch @ 100 yards, provided you have the correct scope for the rifle.
If you are sighting in a .22 LR 40 grain match velocity bullet for 100 yards, the mid range trajectory (50 Yards) is 6" higher. The bullet has a 6" arc half way to your target. If you are sighting in a .270 with 150 grain blunt tail bullets for 250 yards, the mid range trajectory is .4 higher. It only has 4/10" arc half way.
You most match the scope to the gun, and the 1 click= 1 inch rule will apply. Otherwise, it's lock it into a righd mount, fire it and adjust the scope accordingly. If you want to change the range on the scope, it will be guesswork.
I use a Bushnell Banner 3-9X40 with BDC. If you have BDC, make sure you have the correct distance ring in for the caliber.. It will make all the difference in the world.

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.

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.
