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 very same spot.
To move the scope's reticle up or down, turn the elevation adjustment on the TOP of the scope in the direction you want the scope to look, so if your shooting low, turn the scope's adjustment in the DOWN direction.
If you want to move the direction the scope is looking left or right, turn the windage adjustment on the RIGHT side of the scope left or right to look where the bullet is impacting. To move the crosshairs to the right, turn it right.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

I have a bushnell sportview 45 3.5-x10x45 WA brand new in a box what is the value


The scopes are fairly cheap, I think it retails for $140, that was a few years ago. But not much more than that. It is not a quality scope, more of a utility scope. Hope this helps.

most likely you will have to send the scope in to have this taken care of to contact bushnells customer service at 800-423-3537. press option 1. the age of the scope necessitates sending it in to have parts matched up.

Bushnell Sportview rifle scope wide angle 4x38 T4389 limited adjustment inconsistant results


Hello,
I had the same problem but was able to solve it by shimming the scope mounts with a thin piece of plastic. Put it under the rear to raise the sighting and under the front to lower. I still plan to buy my son a better scope.
