There are several potential problems that could be causing this. The most likely are:

misaligned rings
misaligned ring bases
misaligned ring base screw holes
Bent scope

other potential issues
bad scope
bent barrel
poor action bedding (putting enough pressure on the barrel that it throws the bullet to the right, unlikely)

The first 4 are most likely and can be checked by using a different scope. If you have the same issue with the new scope, then look to the rings and mounts as your probable issue.

To move the zero right which way do I turn the dial left or right? I have got conflicting advice and just want to make sure.


There should be an arrow indicating direction on the windage adjustment turret (normally the right side) of the scope. If the arrow is marked left, turn the adjustment knob the other way to move the zero right. To move the bullet point of impact right, move the adjustment knob (dial) right.

Which direction do you turn windage and elevation


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 do i use a tasco 28A


1. Insert the Bore Stud into the Stanchion while aligning the arrows as shows. Insert the assembled scope guide into the muzzle of your rifle with the grid pattern upright. 2. Select the Aperture Cap that fits your objective rim. Place it over the objective end of your rifle scope and press until it fits flatly against the rim. 3. Using the Adjustable Scale measure the top of your rifle scope tube to the center of the rifle bore as follows: Open the rifle breach. Rest the upper arm of the scale on the scope tube before or behind the windage and elevation turrets. The scale markings should be facing towards you reading vertically and ascending from bottom to top. Slide the lower end of the scale up or down until it is touching the center point of the bore. On center fire rifles the center point will be the firing pin. On rimfire models the center will be the shell extractor. Read the number that corresponds to the indicator marked "CF". Make a note of the reading. 4. Aim the rifle toward a light, flatly lit area such as a wall or open sky. Caution: Do Not Look At The Sun As Permanent Eye Injury Could Result. 5. While keeping the riflescope at the right distance to see the full field of view, sight through it on the grid pattern. Move the stanchion right or left until the bold centerline is parallel to the vertical reticule wire. Turn the windage dial right or left until the vertical reticule is aligned with the grid centerline. 6. Use the reading from the scale to align the horizontal reticule wire. Find the numbered horizontal grid line that corresponds to the number on the scale. Turn the elevation dial right or left until the horizontal reticule wire aligns with this corresponding grid line. 7. To make your final zeroing adjustments remove the scope guide from the bore of your rifle. WARNING: FIREING YOUR RIFLE WITHOUT REMOVING THE SCOPE GUIDE MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR RIFLE AND OR CAUSE YOU INJURY At a range or other safe area test fire a group of three rounds of the same type ammunition at a target at least 50 yards away. Refine your scope alignment by adjusting the windage and elevation dials. Move to your desired distance from the target and test fire another group and make your final windage and elevation adjustments. 8. Restore the stud tension by pressing the end of the spring.

Haveing problem with the windage adjust and elavation adjustment it is working backwards.


If your point of impact needs to move up, turn the knob the direction that says up. If it needs to move left, turn the windage knob the direction that says left.

I cant site the scope in the adjustment ot make it go left to right will not adjust


Put the gun in a vise. Look into a mirror and align the crosshairs so that you have one set of crosshairs when viewing in the mirror. The windage adjustment is maxed to the side you are trying to adjust . This will set the parallax of the crosshairs close to zero and allow adjustment in all directions.

Windage fully clockwise "In" and not quite there at 100 yds.


remount the scope using millett angle lock rings that allow you to adjust for windage. bring the scope as close to hitting bulls eye as possible then use the scopes adjustments for the fine tuning. before remounting you will want to recenter the reticule.

CAN NOT ZERO GUN


You may try to bore sight it first. Pull the bolt and setting the gun on a good rest sight thru the barrel at a dot on the wall within ten feet. Then adjust the scope to that dot. As you adjust the scope tap the bore of the scope with a screw driver handle, tap it after each adjustment not hard, but enough to give it a sharp jolt. Once you are close here, move out to the range and shoot at 15 yards. Using a rest, again tap the scope after each adjustment. Then move out to 50 yards and you will want to be shooting high 1.5 to 2 inches here. Shoot slow keep the barrel cool and try for 2 shot groups till you have got the scope dialed in. Then move out to 100 yards for your preference of zero. Remember use the same ammo you will hunt with or at least the same bullet weight. If you can't get her to get on paper you can try to loosen the scope in the rings, one at the time once the gun is a little warm. Loosen the barrel ring first then snug it back down and then the receiver ring. If your group moved now, she was in a bind due to a cold gun at set up / installation.

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. :)

Lost caps


I'm not sure how this got posted in the car audio section...

 

If the scope was manufactured by a well established company, you should be able to get a new cap from them.

 

If you cannot locate the manufacturer, you can move the other cap to the windage adjustment to set the windage. Then when you're finished, move the cap back to the elevation adjustment.

 

Even if you use it for a shooting discipline that requires constant adjustment, it's unlikely that you'll need to use the windage adjustment for anything other than setting the zero.
