Try different types of pellets to find one the gun likes better ie accurate if possible
Get chronograghed for velocity spread
Scope could be rattled to bits inside so with every shot the point of impact changes
Check stock screws for tension if loose action will move on firing

How to use redfieeld 3x9x42 scope


Depends on the scope and rifle type to which it is attached.
I invested in an inexpensive laser bore such as this one for an AR: SightMark AccuDot Laser Bore Sight - 223 Model SM39001 (for AR-15)
Once the scope is mounted properly, and assuming you have not made any vertical or horizontal adjustments, set the rifle on a stable platform, insert the bore sight, point it at a target 50 (rimfire) to 100 (AR) yards out (works best in low light situation).
Once you have the laser centered on your target, make elevation and windage adjustments as necessary placing the scope cross hairs over the laser. Remove the bore sight and fire 3 rounds, then fine tune elevation and windage.

Throwing one of three shots


Not enough information. Is it consistent? Are you using the same ammunition? Distance? Rifle? Iron sights or Scope? etc.

If you are using a scope, it is possible that the scope is loose. If you are firing off-hand, it is probably you. If you are shooting at 1000 yards, you group is actually pretty good.

If you are benchresting your rifle, make sure you are not resting the rifle on the barrel, this can throw shots all over the place.

How to sight in a z6 swarovski scope 10x42


the easy way is bore sight it,,,,,first clamp the rifle in a stand and look down the barrel at some thing like a post top at say 100 yds when you see the post top in the bore dont move the rifle any more till you have tweeked your scope so the cross is on the top of the post top,,,the rifle is then bore sighted,,,now clamp the rifle down and test fire it,,,it will likley shoot low,,,so tweek it till it shoots right,,,,you should get it spot on in less than 5 rounds,,,dont try to hand hold your rifle when zeroing,,,you need to get rid of as many wobbley bits as you can,,,gees whats the bigest wobbley bit?,,,,yep we are? so clamp it down till it shoots right! also dont fire more than 5 shots or you will get your barrel hot and this changes the point of aim,,,in a sporting rifle???

When adjusting for a couple of inches, the next shot is a foot off. It seems to wander all over the target.


! click is 1 inch @ 100 yards, provided you have the correct scope for the rifle.
If you are sighting in a .22 LR 40 grain match velocity bullet for 100 yards, the mid range trajectory (50 Yards) is 6" higher. The bullet has a 6" arc half way to your target. If you are sighting in a .270 with 150 grain blunt tail bullets for 250 yards, the mid range trajectory is .4 higher. It only has 4/10" arc half way.
You most match the scope to the gun, and the 1 click= 1 inch rule will apply. Otherwise, it's lock it into a righd mount, fire it and adjust the scope accordingly. If you want to change the range on the scope, it will be guesswork.
I use a Bushnell Banner 3-9X40 with BDC. If you have BDC, make sure you have the correct distance ring in for the caliber.. It will make all the difference in the world.

Windage and elevation adjustment all over the place


Sounds like you want to "re-sight" in your rifle. Make sure mounts are okay and tight. Look down barrel and then thru scope and eyeball windage and elevation adjustments so the scope seems to be fairly in line.

Clean barrel if it needs it.

For basic sight in, start at 25 yards with a large(3 to 4 feet) cardboard or wood backdrop around target (bullseye). Fire at target. Once done, look through scope and position rifle such that the shot mark you created is dead zero. Hold rifle very steady and you or buddy move windage and elevation adjustments until scope moves dead zero back toward original target (bullseye). Fine tune from there. Air cool rifle between rounds. Once dead eye, fire another round or two to check grouping. Check your ballistics (sometimes on ammo box) to see how height at 25 yards affects your desired dead on target (100 yards, 150 yards, 250 yards etc.). Adjust accordingly. Example: you may need to sight in at an inch high at 25 yards, depending on your dead on target distance..

Always remove sling from barrel when sighting in.

Try to sight in at similar temperature as you intended shooting temperatures, if possible.

If not black powder, avoid cleaning barrel between sight in and hunt/competition unless you note bad buildup inside.

If you change ammo, understand that that may affect performance. Once a preferred ammo is found, some even try to buy a decent quantity with the same lot number on the boxes if storage allows for such.

Scope won't sight in


Yes, rim fire scopes can't be used on a stronger firearm as the recoil will alter the internal mechanism. I fought with scopes of all types for years until I bought a used Leopold, never finding a better one! Hope you can find one of those.
