Start off shooting at a range of 20yds no more off a bench rest
when you have a zero move back to 50yds you will find it will shoot bepending on the gun highter or lower but in line its just a mater of putting the cross on the target shooting a round and without moving the gun at all, move the cross over the hit from the bullet strike,,,thats it then its zerod

My bsa sweet 17 6-18 is shooting about 2 inches high at 100 yards. on the adjustment turret it has an arrow that shows which way to turn for up. What is moving up? the point of impact relative to the...


To raise the point of impact, turn the elevation screw counterclockwise. To shift left, turn windage screw clockwise. If you raise the horizontal cross hair you will lower the point of impact of the bullet. If you move the vertical cross hair to the right the shot placement will go to the left. Make small adjustments tap the scope with a screwdriver handle to give it a shock, not to hard to help move the cross hairs and try to bore sight first. Hope this helps Fix ya up.

How to adjust elevation and horizontal to sight in?


According to their website, the adjustment knobs have a "Push-Pull" feature. It appears that you need to pull the knobs away from the tube to engage the adjustment mechanism. Once you have accomplished this, you should be able to adjust you Point Of Aim (POI), then push them back in to prevent inadvertent setting changes.

The reverse may also be true - pressing in to change the setting, pulling back out to lock in the adjustment.

Hope this helps

What that means is they are not mounted correctly. The scope mounts should be square with your rifle when fitted, when the scope is placed into the mounts, it should be turned to be square with the rifle.

Firstly, make sure you do not "cant" when you shoot. That is hold the rifle at an angle instead of vertical. Once you are sure that is OK, then put it into a vice using blanket or some other soft material to protect the stock. Get the rifle perfectly square using a spirit level. There should be a flat spot on the top of the action that you can use. Once this is achieved, you loosen off the scope mounts and square the scope up to your satisfaction. Once done, tighten the mounts up and then remove from the vice.

My elevation and windage adjustments aren't moving my scope. I shot 4 times and my group is 1 inch. Problem is I adjusted my scope between all 4 shots. I'm consistently shooting 7 inches high and 3 inches...


This can only be due to a "broken" scope. To be sure, you can put your gun in a vice (cushion it) and put the crosshairs on a fixed point. Without moving the gun, crank the adjustment knobs a good 10-15 clicks in one direction each, and see if the crosshairs move from where you had them pointed.
If they do not, the scope must be replaced. If they do move, perhaps you should try adjusting the scope quite a bit more between shots.
The best way to sight it in requires a helper. Fire one shot with the crosshairs on the bullseye. Then, without reloading, put the crosshairs back on the bullseye, and have a friend adjust the knobs until the crosshairs move to the ACTUAL point of impact of that shot. It is essential NOT to move the gun while doing this.
This method allows me to sight any gun in with only 2 shots (and a few for confirmation, of course). Best of luck!

Windage adjust correction


Go to; www.bsaoptics.com for the manual and parts.
You do not say if the WINDAGE Adjustment KNOB is 'broken' or what? If you have dropped it or somehow broken it, it's unlikely that you will be able to repair it yourself, in which case I refer you again to BSA.
If there's nothing wrong with the scope or your rifle, and you are simply having difficulty getting a good ZERO, I can help you with that, just respond and let me know.
Good luck. :)
