Bore sighted rifle with Bushnell Standard bore sighter. Good results with other rifles and scopes. The Sportview, however , when zeroed, fired way off of the mark. Attempts to make the scope match the hits failed due to very limited adjustment on the scope. Back to zero on the Bore Sighter and I could only lower the cross hairs one bar below zero. Maybe four bars above zero. Limited left and right adjustment also.
Hits seem to have only slight relationship to adjustments.
Using the iron sights had much better and more consistant results.
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.

That is a parallax adjustment. You set it for the distance you are shooting at. It appears to be marked in both yards and meters. This adjustment assures the reticle does not appear to move when your eye is moved slightly from side-to-side. Set it for 200 and look at a target at 50 and move your head very slightly side-to-side and you will see the difference.
On my Bushnell scope I have an adjustable angle ring that will bring in the view, it is held in place with 1 screw. remove it and pull down towards the windage and elevation adjustment screws. There are 3 tiny phillips screws, remove them. Then unscrew the end of the Eye Peice end peice with the lens in it. inside on the outer edge of the main tube there is a locking ring that keeps the eye peice from unscrewing off, remove it and unscrew the entire eye peice. you are now ready remove the inner tube. Be careful here this is where you can damage the cross hairs and lose the leaf spring that maintains pressure against the windage and elevation screws. When you reassemble after cleaning and with the elevation screw at 12 o'clock and windage screw at 3 o;colck, the leaf spring will be in the 7 or 8 O"clock position, it just sits in there up against a little ridge inside, with the bow facing to the center. Back off the elevation and windage screws all the way so they don't block the inner tube from going in all the way. Once it is in adjust it so the cross hairs are orented correctly and put it back together. If you want to refill with Nitrogen remove the front lense and take to someone that fills tires with Nitrogen and inject the nitrogen into the scope, Quickly reinstall the front lens as nitrogen is about 3% lighter than air and if you take too long it will all escape. This worked well for me. Good Luck and Happy shooting
Hi type into Google, Zeroing a Telescopic Rifle site, Shooters have there own ways of doing it but you will find what is best for you depending on what type of rifle you will be using. If you are fitting it to a Air Rifle. You could Type in Zeroing telescopic site for Air Rifles.
Hope this helps

2) Use a bean bag or rifle mount and make sure that your rifle doesnt move much from its original position throughout this process.
3) Aim with the scope and shoot at a large backstop which will allow you to see where your shot lands, where ever that may be, it doesnt matter at this point. Again, make sure your rifle doesnt move much when firing.
4) With the rifle in the same position, look through the scope and adjust the crosshairs over to where your shot landed.
5) The scope now sighted in with the rifle. Minimal adjustment may still be required but at least your well within the ball park.
Load your gun up and when you can shoot it, aim with your new glass(Scope) and lay out a group of three slugs, not buckshot, (i'm assuming your shooting a shotgun). Then use some trial and error to tighten your dot to your grouping. I don't blame you for the confusion, but normally, most scopes set up for this adjustment pattern are moving your target according to the knobs, not your crosshairs or dot. Another option you have is to buy a laser bore sighter. then you can play with adjusting your scope for in the field or wherever with much more comfort when you need to. You can find them online at walmart or almost any sporting goods store these days, yes they save ammo and yeas they save time, but i still shoot to make sure i'm dead on after using mine.
