You have a gun mount problem its not a scope problem ,,,the scope mount is not a good fit to the gun and is off set to the barrel,,,
set the scope to center of its ajustment and then "pack out the scope with a bit of old 35mm film till you get it close to were you need it to hit then do the last bit of ajustment on the turrets,,this works for lift and windage

Leupold 3x9x40 vari-xIIc on BAR30-06. Adjusted windage as far to the right as possible and I'm still 6-8 inches off center. 12 year old scope been dead on till the middle of this season.


from my experience owning a bar they tend to lose accuracy badly after a lot of rounds are put through them especially if they are shot rapid fire style allot ( the barrel gets very hot and i am also not impressed with how the barrel is attached to the receiver) i shot mine until it just would not shoot accurately at all. (i sold it). its possible that your scope or mounts are loose defective or there may be a screw that may be broken under the mounts that you cant see.

How do you make adjustments, towards the shot or towards center of the target?


You move the cross hairs to the shot. Set up your gun on a bench and start by firing at a target out at about 15 yards. Once you are "on paper" set your cross hairs on the center and fire a 3 shot group Adjust the scope to the group. if the group is down 3 inch and left 4 inch. Adjust your scope accordingly. Then Fire another 3 shot group, until you are shooting center. Every time you adjust your scope tap the barrel of the scope with a screwdriver handle to keep the cross hairs from sticking. Once on at 15 yards move out to your max range and adjust to that.

I shot my new 4.5x14x44mm conquest scope and tried to adjust the cross hairs according to my shots fired but the shots kept hitting in the same spot after a box of shells. i had it bore sited and i still...


Is the country of origin China.. Sounds like the reticle is stuck,, like from being dropped maybe in shipping. OK, Without any adjustments made shoot it one time, if you tap on the side of the scope, not the top of the turrets with a plastic/rubber hammer and point of impact changes (jumps) its faulty.. you cant fix it.

My rifle hits the same spot no matter how i adjust it


there should be two adjustment dials on the scope one on top and one on the side might be covered with a plastic plate, depending on the scope the top dial does elevation, and the side dial does left and right adjustments

Need a manual for a simmons rifle scope model # 1022


When you click on "customer service" on the simmonsoptics.com website, it takes you to the Bushnell customer service web page.

The number for customer service that is given is:

1-888-276-5945

The customer service rep. told me to "go to the Simmons web page".

Which, of course, takes me back to the Bushnell web page. It's a circular race track.......

In my opinion, Simmons/Bushnell has lousy customer service.

I bought a 2nd hand Simmons 3-9X50 scope (model #800479) that needed the screw on caps for the reticle adjustment screws. A small request, I thought.....one that should be easily remedied by calling Simmons/Bushnell customer support.

No dice. Customer support told me to spend $15 to send them the scope, and then they "will have to look around and find something that will fit."

Oh really??? Doesn't Simmons/Bushnell already KNOW the sizes of the parts they have?

Just send me the damn caps. They will cost Simmon/Bushnell no more than a buck apiece.

Then I asked for a user manual for said scope. No dice. The customer support lady told me to find the manual on the Simmons web page.

The Simmons web page doesn't provide user manuals online.

Their customer support needs a lot of improvement.

Can't adjust my Remmington Summit always hits low?


There are two posibilities i can think of your going to have to provide more data. why does it hit low always? have you mounted the scope to discover now matter how high you adjust the MOA you cant get zero'd? or on all the shots you take it just hits low? what math are you usings to prepare your shots?

I have a Bushnell Sprotiew 4x, 15mm scope mounted on a Mossburg .22 rifle. My shots are hitting left six inches and low. Can you please tell me how to adjust this scope? Thank you.


Keep in mind Diane this is for a set distance. if you are taking a shot at a target further than your are set for (ie a target you wont get 3 shots @) remember how the bullet is travelling as it goes down range

one idea would be to set your rifle up down range and zero it in on a target (preferably paper) now adjust 1 MOA (try and have target @ 100 yards and 200 yards)

see how far the bullet moves for each moa adjustment. then check it against the next range.

this should remain constant @ a set number of inches per 100 yards.

so if you zero in @ 100 yards and then move 1 moa any direction and it adjusts (lets say and hope it is 1.047 inches") then you do the same for 200 yards. it should be twice as much movement. ie 2.094"

once you know what 1 moa represents on your scope you can adjust alot more accurately.

REMEBER the total inches of movement / adjustment per MOA is directly related to range (a precise range helps in shooting) so if your squirrel is 150 yards and your first shot is off 9" to adjust you divide 9" by the inches per moa so 1.5 (150 yards /100) X (Inches per 100 yards per moa you measured hopefully 1.047") its 9" divided by 2x1.047 = 9" / 2.094 = 4.29799

this number needs to be rounded to the nearest click on your scope (most are 1/4 MOA scopes and you can tell by looking at how many clicks/lines are inbewteen each large number on your windage and elevation dials

so to turn this into an adjustment we round 4.29799 to 4.25 which is 4.25 MOA or 17 clicks on a 1/4 min scope.

GL and any questions just post and ill help

not please rate this as fixya :)

Note i can provide EXACT information that would allow you to determine range, and windage and elevation adjustments by looking through scope and estimating range
then factoring in weather variables. NOTE you hafta enjoy math or just want to know how to shoot really well. :)

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.
