This depends entirely on what class of cartridges the scope was built for. Different cartridges will drop more or less at a specified distances based on starting speed and ballistic coefficient. If your scope is built for a .223 and you are shooting a .223, then it will work fine. If you mounted it on a 45-70 however, the bullet will drop much more quickly and your necessary scope adjustments will not match the markings on your scope.

Sight in distance for 2.510x42m


What is the calibre and velocity and target species as the zero distance could be 50-200 yards depending on what you are shooting
most of my rifles are set to 100yards except for the nitro express
Which is zeroed for 55 yrds and the 17 wildcat which is 200 yards
It all depends on the range you will be shooting most

How do i zero my tasco silver antler rifle scope


Start out at 25 yards. the scope is I believe used 1/4 inch clicks. This is for 100 yards so 16 clicks will equal 1 inch at 25 yards. Fire three shoots from a solid rest. Measure the distance left or right and up or down from the desired point of impact. and move the setting in the desired direction. ie uo is moving the point of impact up from where it is. and left or right is the same. Next fire at the desired distance and move point of impact to where you want it at that distance. If the scope is wandering all over the target make sure the scope is not moving in the mounts. If it persist in changing point of impact send it back to tasco for a replacement as it has a loose recticle. Better yet I can recomend Leupold or Burris as a better alternative if they are in your budget. Not quite a S&B or Ziess but **** close for a lot less $$$$$

Do i have to loosen set screws on turrets to zero scope or do i zero and leave the set screws where they are to shoot at different distances? thx. 6x24x42 varmint with mil dot reticle.


Sight in your scope, Loosen the set screws and zero the dials the re-set the set screws. This will make it easy for you to adjust for distance and wind from the zero setting when in the field shooting. Then you can go back to your zero.

I dont understand what the extra dial on my new 6-18x44 scope is for or how to use it.Or what range evry line and dot in the reticule should be ranged in at.


The third turret is for parallax and approximate range
And the lines on the reticule are round and velocity specific plus magnification comes into the distances between substension
On my scope 100 yard zero the next substension down is 176 yards at 10 magnification
The best way to use the reticule for ranging is to get a ballistics program and enter rifle round and scope stats and get a chart for that round and reticule
And the drop chart will change for different velocities and ballistic coefficients of rounds and temperatures a summer chart will be different to a winter chart due to denser air in the cold

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.

Is there a way to lower my turret after i've found my zero? my zero is at the 4th vertical tic mark on the 0.


No. The turret is what it is. If you want to re-set the turret to zero so that it is easy to return to for a specific distance, there should be a setscrew you can loosen, adjust the turret to zero, then re-tighten to lock it in place. If you are simply trying to lower the turret, you need to purchase a scope without target turrets.

I have a 25 year old Redfield 6X18 scope, with an


bullet drop compensation,,,,compleat hog wash!
no such thing in a scope, only a realy pricy one like £1500.00p worth and there not that good! but there coming soon! driven by a lazer for range finding,,,
still your scope has clouded up becouse its leaking
water has got into it, it could be repaired but its not cheap to do, it needs a complet strip down all the class cleand and new seals then a re-gas and it should be as good as new for another 25 years or so,
any good scope with mill dot will work for you, you just need to relurn the bullet drop over again,,and with the years of shooting you have had that should come easy as falling over,,,why not just get a good prised 3/9x40 mill dot and try that out insted, you will be plesently pleased with todays mid priced range scopes treet your self, and save money at the same time
