Looking for instructions on the use of an Acu-trac rifle scope by Redfield. There are lines above the crosshairs and a yardage graph on the bottom of the crosshairs.

    When you see your target, adjust your variable range until the top cross hair lay on the back of the deer and the 2nd cross hair is on the deers belly. with this done read the yardage on the scale to the right. Say it reads 400 yards, you then turn the elevation knob to 4. you then can shoot the regular cross hairs dead on.

Where can I get a manual for a Redfield 6-18x accu trac scope?

Dear Carl,

I have the same problem and have not been successful finding an actual manual. However, if you go to "" there is a link for general instructions. It is under "Redfield Scopes" and then scroll down to "How to use the AccuTrac." However, it does not give the starting point of the instructions and only gives the table for the different dials. I will try to explain what those 2 lines at the top of the reticle are for.

The average whitetail from the top of the shoulder to the bottom of the chest should fit exactly inbetween these 2 lines when the zoom is used correctly. If you notice, the yardage counter in the bottom left (4:00 position) it will tell the yardage of the deer when you zoom in or out and the torso fills these 2 lines. You may also notice it starts at 200yds. Thats because you need have your rifle zeroed in at 100 yds. So there's no point displaying less than 200 yds. This is where the different dials come in. For example: the deer is 300yds away. You zoom in or out until the torso of the deer is inbetween the 2 lines then look at the yardage in the 4:00 position. It should read approx 300yds. Then you dial up to the number 3 position on the elevation knob and aim as you would if the deer where at 100ds.

Look up which dial you need on the ABOUSA site on the AccuTrac tables I mentioned earlier. You might be lucky and find the dial you have is the right one for your caliber. If not, this company was once the offical repair facility for Redfield, Colorado. They also have the different dials for sale but are quite expensive...$10--$30 each.

Hope this helps,

I can see objects through the finderscope, but cannot see anything through the telescope. What am I doing wrong?

Your finder scope is NOT lined up with the main tube. Get a distant object like the top of a telephone pole into the eyepiece of the main telescope tube.

Without moving the scope adjust the crosshairs or the red dot onto the exact same spot. Now your finder scope is lined up with the main telescope tube.

im sorry but the price of that scope is not worth getting new crosshairs, you should just go get a new scope at walmart. they are like 9 bucks. But i myself would get a better scope, you can get decent ones for liek 60 bucks. Last a lifetime if you take care of them. The best scopes can cost 800 dollars on up. Just get a new scope. the part would coast more then the scope.

Crosshairs are cocked to the right.

your scope has spun in the scope rings. Loosen the screws holding the scope to the rifle and turn scope until crosshairs are into position. Then tighten screws. You will need to sight in again. If it keeps moving replace scope rings.
