A better description will get you a better answer.

Many of these problems are caused the the mounting system. if you have the same problem with 2 different scopes on the same rifle, check there first:

Tighten mount screws - 20 inch pounds torque, use blue locktite
Tighten ring to mount screws - 30 inch pounds torque
Tighten ring screws - 15-20 inch pounds torque

If all is tight, you may need to lap your rings to get better ring to scope contact and increased clamping friction. Go here for an appropriate tool.

Hope this helps

Black specks or chips are collecting on the optics inside of the scope. The scope won't hold zero. Scope is mounted on a 50 BMG.


Hey, the a good probility that it dust. I don't know how ATN seals it NV scopes. But the 50 will shake it to the extreme that it will loosen everything in the scope. Did ATN say it can be used on a BMG 50. How is your nut and screw working hey. stewbison

Elevation adjustments do not seem to hold or the scope moves slowly over time. I'm not certain. Windage works fine. Looked at manual on the web and the scope must have changed design because not...


Most of the time a scope that creeps off its zero, has a loose mount screw and or loose mounting ring. Check the mounts all screws. Some times the opposite is true. The mounts are to tight and in a bind. Then during firing the receiver heats up an tweaks the scope enough to cause creep. If the scope is always on zero when cold and creeps off after a few shots, she is in a bind. Make all adjustments to the scope base and rings with a cold gun. Loosen the front ring screws first then re-tighten then loosen the rear doing the same. Then try and re-zero the gun. If the gun never comes back to zero, you end one day shooting hi to the right and try again the next day shooting in the same spot try to re-tighten all screws. Screws from mount to gun then scope rings to scope body.

Just bought this scope and want to use on my rem 243,will it hold a zero once zeroed in?


The ability of a scope to hold it's adjustment is pretty much pre- determined by the quality of the scope itself...Better scopes hold adjustments better than cheap ones. Same goes for the mounts...a good mount will not loosen up or change point of aim.
If you are using a good quality scope and good mounts, once sighted in, unless you drop the weapon or have it shipped as 'baggage" on a long distance hunt, It should stay reasonably zeroed.
A 243 is not known as a "shoulder buster" so recoil should not affect adjustments.
243's are generally used in long range shooting. Therefore changes in temperature and normal use can change point of impact...so can changing the ammo you use. Therefore I don't recommend not checking accuracy before taking any weapon into the field. Wether you are using a $40 scope or a $1000 one, you owe the animal you are shooting, your very best attempt to take it down with one well placed shot. Checking zero at the anticipated shooting distance is the best way to insure that.

Who makes these shooters edge scopes


I heard Shooters Edge was made by Bushnell but can't confirm it. For those having problems with their scopes, we have had none. I bought a 3x9x40 and a 10x18x40, both are mounted on .22 rifles that my son and I target shoot with. Both are holding a good zero.

Zeroing scope adjustment


First, adjust wind-age and elevation to center or zero position. Remove your scope from the gun and make sure that the scope mounts are aligned, this is critical. Purchase an alignment tool is necessary. Then remount the scope. The scope should seat in the mounts without binding. If it does bind, the mounts are not aligned.
Start sighting in at close range,10 to 30 yards, then move out to 100 yards.
