SOURCE: The reticules on my Weaver V9 - II W seem to be frozen

for basic instructions on how to use and get familliar with a scope go to

They provide a fairly easy guide to follow but you should make sure to take these steps

1) First take the training there is, lol then re take it as its alot of information
2) the first range you go to should be A (there are standard environmental conditions here, which is
what your range card is based on so no environmental data to worry about :) other than wind and range)

This is a good software to obtain howerver you do it (i know it is dl'able but thats dangerous now adays and you shouldnt download games or software this is "cracked" (where the anti piracy part of the software has be removed) because the people who are loosing money to this have a "mis information campaign" going on. What this means is the people who write software or sell a product now adays have started distributing for free their software, but in it is some mean virus'. Although this is illegal, it isnt in the country its set up in and you cant complain you stole a program. :S so it is best to just buy things now adays.

another invaluable tool as a shooter is an exterior ballistics software. These programs are quick and easy to use once your familiar with them and accurate to within 2" over 1800 yards :) (more often your shot will be off because you read the wind wrong)

even if you dont want to "use a computer" to shoot. this software in 2 mins will setup your Range card for the day (as it varies with humidity temperature barometric pressure and elevation from sea level) this means that instead of modifying your 1 range card @ standard atmoshperic conditions with complicated math (taht adds to the error factor) each shot and each day you only have to set up the program with values and it prints a range card w set increments (if you drag your lap top or mini laptop or w/e to the field or range you can use it each shot setting the range as the increment gives EXACT VALUES for the shot litterally ask the computer how to shoot and it will tell you.

Another popular and highly innovative product is the iPhone! it has an app that can be downloaded onto it for like 15$ that is a ballistics software. then, with some precision engineered mounts, its side mounted on the gun and even displays the rifles angle of elevation or depression as you aim!

anymore questions let me know

SOURCE: I have a model D-4 weaver rifle scope with missing adjustment par

Pretty much all rifle scopes have great warranties. Send it into weaver and i'm sure they will fix it plus replace any parts. I'm sure they will charge for missing parts but it would be best for them to look at it and check it out. TP

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.

I have a Redfield 'LO-PRO' rifle scope, 3X9 variable, on my 300 Win Mag. It is about 20 to 25 years old and the cross hairs must be loose. They are not straight up and down anymore. Will this affect the...

It doesn't sound like anything's broken, it sounds like the scope has shifted in the rings, as you said "they are not straight up and down anymore", which won't effect your accuracy at short ranges, but if there's long ranges (more than 100 yards) you're going to be off some.
You can loosen the ring screws until the scope will turn, either 2 or 4 screws that hold the two halves of the ring together. There are numerous tools to help you align the crosshairs, but when I do this job I just square-up the reticle (crosshairs) by looking at the center of the reticles and let your eye follow the bottom crosshair down and make sure it is centered on the back of the bolt or receiver. If you need help doing this job, take it to your local gunsmith, he'll be able to square these up for you and boresight it.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

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!

Crosshairs on pentax 4.5x14x42 don't move

With modern rifle scopes the crosshairs do not move.They are designed so that the crosshairs are always centered.I have not seen a scope with crosshairs that move for about 40 years.If your scope has 1/4 minute clicks, then the strike of the bullet moves 1/4 inch at 100 yards for every click.1 inch for 4 clicks and so on.If you rifle shoots 6 inches high at 100 yards you should turn it down 24 clicks to strike dead on.Many hunters and shooters adjust their scopes to strike 1 1/2 inches high at 100 yards.Then it will be accurate to about 300 yards without further adjustment.

Fine tuning grid on my Samsung HDTV with remote.(BP59-00048)

To adjust manual convergence on your projection TV, follow theses steps:
  1. Turn your TV on.
  2. Let it warm up for 30 minutes.
  3. Press the Menu button on your remote. The Main menu appears.
  4. Use your remote to select Function, and then press the joystick.
  5. Select Convergence, and then press the joystick. The Manual Convergence screen appears.
  6. Select Red, and then press the joystick. A series of crosshairs appears on the screen.
  7. Select one of the outside crosshairs by moving the joystick up/down/right/left or by pressing the 2 (up), 4 (left), 6 (right), or 8 (down) buttons on your remote. The method you use depends on the model of remote you have. Note: You must do the outside crosshairs first.
  1. In the crosshair you selected, if you can see a horizontal red line, use the CH up or CH down buttons to move the line so that it is superimposed on the horizontal center line of the crosshair. Note: Make the single horizontal line as white as possible.
  1. In the crosshair you selected, if you can see a vertical red line, use the Vol + or Vol - buttons to move the line so that it is superimposed on the vertical center line of the crosshair. Note: Make the single vertical line as white as possible.
  1. Repeat for all outside crosshairs, and then for the inside crosshair.
  2. Return to the Manual Convergence Screen, and select Blue, and then press the joystick.
  3. Repeat Steps 7 through 10 for Blue.
  4. Press the Menu button on your remote to exit.
Important: The directions above work for most Samsung Rear Projection TVs. Yours may be different. For exact directions to perform manual convergence, see your user's manual. If you don't have your user's manual on hand, click HERE to view your manual on line.
If you cannot get your Projection TV to converge, it may need to be serviced. To arrange a service appointment, call Samsung Customer Care at 1-800-Samsung (1-800-726-7864). Have your TV's model number and serial number on hand when you call.
