Question about Optics

2 Answers

I took my 4x12 Redfield rifle scope off my 222 varmit special and put it on my 3006 sniper hunting rifle and it will not hold changing point of impact by approximately 4 inches every time you shoot. Is there anyplace it can be sent for repair? It is a fine croshair with 200-600 yd range finder and I would like to use it for deer hunting.

What kind of scope would be good for my 308 axis rifle?


Redfield and Vortex brands make good entry level scopes with good clarity, durability, features and warranties. If you plan on hunting a scope with a low power around 3-4x and a high power of 9-12x with a bullet drop reticle like the Vortex BDC would be a good choice.

Why does my 30 yr old redfield, widefield ,range finder accu-trac scope that has operated great for all these yrs, now I cain,t get it hit in the same zone a target. The rifle is clean and operates great...


well if the bullet hit is jumping about its all down to your scope,,,it could be that its just "lose on its mount!" or its died on you,,like the cross hair is bouncing about inside the scope so with the recoial it jumps into a new place with every shot fired there by giving you a new point of impact,,,
this can happen if the scope was wound right up or down or left or right and strain was put on the adjusters,,,you may need to buy a new scope,,,,a good "air rifle!" scope will work quite well on most full bore rifles,,,yer right i here you say!!! ok,,iv got air rifle scope's on my .303 + 7.62 + 22-250 + .357 under leaver marlin cowboy, all 3 of my .22 rim fire's and they have been on these rifles for years now,,,1000,000, of rounds fired so far, with no problems! and no drifting so far,,,
an air rifle scope is very strong you know,,,but they only cost £150,00p or less for a good one?????
ps,,,,dont buy a tesco scope there cra*y

How many ft lb of torque for scope rings


A typical torque setting for scope bases (on a steel reciever) is 30 in/lbs. The rings (steel) need 15-20 in/lbs.

For a aluminum receiver and/or rings, 15-20 in lbs is about max. I use 10 in/lbs with blue Locktite for aluminum receivers and rings.

Redfield Rifle Scope Manual


I own a Redfield spotting scope the model year is between the 70's to 80's and I need to find a manual for it. But I was Wondering if you could answer a question there is a crossair, then there is another one right above that, then there is a loop on the bottom right hand corner. There is also a yard marker that starts at 600 and goes down to 100. Do you know what it is and how to use it or what the purpose of it is if you could help me that would be great. Thank you for all your help..Joshua Gambler

Sniper scopes


A scope is a personal preference really but there are some ground rules that do need to be followed.

any scope will be effective in a good shooters hands. however there are some bells and whistles that are nice to have.

1) For long distance shooting a scope with 40 MOA is preferable this allows for 10 MOA down and 30 MOA up giving the rifle the ability to zero for any range.

2) Hold over graphs are a beauty when your in a rapid target environment. here is an example
http://www.zeiss.com/C12568CF00206298/GraphikTitelIntern/rz1000_lg/$File/rz1000_lg.gif

this is more of a hunting scope but this hold over calibration allows for rapid fire.
