Question about Nikon Optics
Elevation is turned all the way up and at 50 yards im still shooting 3" low
Also a common fault is incorrect mounting.
take scope out of the mounts
mount the bases to the rail, position them, tighten them up
place scope in mounts, align scope and put rings on finger tight
recheck the alignment, use a spirit level an plumb line if you need to, and tighten the rings in a criss cross pattern, (not enough to damage the scope though)
I have come accross many poeple connecting mounts to the scope and then to the the rifle.
If that doesnt work, try swapping the front and rear mounts around.
Then resort to packing shims under the rear mount.
hope this helps

This is a common fault with fitting cheep mounts on your rifle,,
a nikon scope is realy for "air rifles" but having sead that there very strong scopes, i have 4 of them all fitted on full bore rifles,,308,(7.62) .303 british enfield, .22-250 and a 357 mag rifle? and none of them have shook apart yet! and i found that on a full bore they do shoot low,,,to get over this problem you could change the mounts to the ajustable type witch is pricy,,or a cheep way out is to pack the bottom of the rear scope mount out with a strip of 35mm film,,(the rear being the end you look throw),you only need to life the rear end of your scope 25th of an inch to rise its point of impact by 6" inchs at 100 yds as the nikon scope is one click (1 thou of an inch) = 1/4 of an inch at 100 yds so 25 thou will raze it by 6.25 inches (- bullet drop!) just undo the scews that hold down the rear of the scope and slip a bit of old 35mm film under the scope then nip the scews back up again and try it out,,,if its still low put in a bit more packing,,,but you can only get about 4 bits of film in before its likley to bend the scope tube!!! mind you with 4 bit under it you will be shooting at the moon??? its much cheeper that ajustable mounts,, all my scopes are packed out like this and they dont creep or slide or loos point of aim even after 300 rounds in a day?
