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

SOURCE: i have a weaver k-8 scope with adj. rings on front bezel ??????

the front ring is for adjusting point of impact at a given range,,,its called a "parallax ajustment" it corrects for the scopes inaccuracies over its full range say from 10 yds to 100 yds there a bit of a pain on a hunting rifle as you need to focus them every time and that slows down your shooting, when only a snap shot will get the kill you cant wate to mess about focusing the darm scope so i never use them on my rifles,,unless im target shooing,, or im snipping when i have time to take my shot,,,
(a head shot only!) only a parallax scope is spot on aim from 10yds to infinity

SOURCE: moa not true past 300yds tasco 6x24x42mm

The Tasco is not a 600 yrd scope by any means. If you want to get rid of them, there are plenty of deer hunters who will use it at 100 yards and never go beyond that. The MOA is usually imprinted on the windage dial, it will have a little fraction or a decimal there telling what it is at 100 yards. There are a couple good scopes out there, Nikon and Pentax are decent. Leupold is about the best. It will deliver beyond your eye vision and rifles potential. I have a Bushnell on my M-40, mainly because I can't afford a $1000 scope, but I can shoot door knobs off at 200 yards all day. The scope is a piece of junk, but I have it set up right and it works, Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How to readjust a weaver mount?

Make sure the nuts are on the same side of the rifle (both on the right OR left). The clamping mechanism can vary the centering of the scope if they are on opposite sides of the mount.

The other problem may be poorly drilled mounting holes on the receiver or scope mount, check these for alignment with your bore or barrel.

Can you explain to me about moas? i got this new p4 and im trying to learn how to use it can you tell me? and do i have to site it in at 100 yards first?


If you are going to attempt to sight in your rifle scope for hunting or just shooting, you will need a basic understanding of what a Minute of Angle is.

Think of a circle as it is divided into 360 degrees.

Each degree is divided into 60 minutes.

Each minute is divided into 60 seconds, but we don't use that for ballistics, seconds of angle are just used in machine shops and in rocket science.

Minute of Angle

1 MOA = 1/60th of a degree

1 MOA = 1.047 inches at 100 yards
Most accurate long range scopes are set in quarter clicks (4 clicks = 1 MOA) or eighth clicks (8 clicks = 1 MOA) but less accurate short range scopes are sometimes set in half MOA clicks (2 clicks = 1 MOA)? which to me is the opposite as it should be.


For a .308 the difference between shooting at 100 yards and at 500 yards is about 11 MOA. That adjustment with a scope using eighth clicks is 88 clicks.


Most accuracy testing is done at 100 yards, because it makes the math easier, and it is close enough to see the bullet holes through a spotting scope.

Folks usually say that 1 MOA is equal to 1 inch at 100 yards, which is almost exactly correct, as 1 MOA is only slightly more than 1 inch at 100 yards. But for what we are doing it is close enough. Now think it on out to 300 yards, 1 MOA is then equal to 3 inches. So if your shots are 1 inch off to the left at 100 yards; out at 300 yards, you will be off to the left 4 inches. Clear as mud? Hope this helps.

We need 2 know what 4 m o a means


MOA is the abbreviation for Minute of Angle, which measures 1/60 of 1 degree. If you want all the technical jargon and math that involves, this link explains it all: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minute_of_angle

But when you're talking about rifle scopes, here's what you need to know:
Adjusting the angle of your scope by 1 MOA will change the point of impact by about 1 inch at a distance of 100 yards. So 4 MOA is roughly 4 inches over on an object viewed at 100 yards.

Usually, the windage and elevation adjustments on a scope will be about 1/4 MOA, or about a 0.25 inch change over 100 yards.

My Weaver Classic riflescope is maxxed out for elevation


I don't think the tube holding the cross hairs will go up that high, and shimming the front base, I don't know. What you need is a new cross hair with the dots below the cross, They will raise your line of sight past the 350 zero. Or,,,,, just put the cross at the top of your target, 600 yards without the right scope is a long shot. I hope you have a heavy barrel target rifle in 308 or bigger. My M42 is unbelievable, but, It will shoot better than me all day long and I rarely go over 200 yards. I tried the 600 yard line once, didn't like it. Oh I could hit the target, but I like hitting doorknobs at 200 yards better. What are you shooting anyway? I hope your not trying to stretch out a 223 to the max.

Lost manual for trophy scope 3-9x40 rifle


There is no manual for elevation and windage adjustments. (at least not one that comes with your scope; all your scopes manual will say is whether its FFP or SFP (First Focal Plane or Second Focal Plane, the scale used on your scope for mil dots)(you can get this info by finding a store that sells this scope and asking a sales rep)

To adjust for elevation and windage you have to take into account the daily factors (unless your shooting in the same indoor environmental controlled shooting range each day you SNOB! jk

The formula takes alot of variables into account and is known as Exterior Ballistics

!) Environmental Factors - First thing you account for.

A) Elevation from sea level plays a large part into your environmental adjustments. Your elevation from sea level determines largely the Barometirc Pressure but it also varies slightly with Temp and Humidity (Major Factor)

B) Temperature - The temperature can affect the density of the air. The hotter it is the thinner it is and therefore less resistance and a higher bullet trajectory (Minor Factor)

C) Humidity - This again will affect the densify of the air infront of your bullet (Minor Factor)

D) Barometric Pressure - The other large factor in air density this is the base stat that the others modify

These all combined create a ratio that you apply to standard MOA (windage and elevation adjustments) to obtain the shooting information for that particular environment)



2) Bullet Factors (Listed on the Box you buy) - There are a few bullet factors to take into account.

A) Speed - the bullets feet per second can vary as much or more than 500 feet per second with the
same caliber ammunition.
B) Grain - The Grain of an ammunition is a measure fo its "Sectional Density" or weight to volume
ratio
C) Ballistic Co Efficient - This number is the measure of the bullets ability to maintain its speed
during flight. This also varies from Grain to Grain


These factors are complex and a pain for the best of shooters to determine. adding to that confusion. there are many ways to determine a bullets ballistics coefficient and each one gets a different number. In this case bullet data is best retieved from the manufactuerers box and take their word for it.

3) Lastly you account for shot factors.

A) Range - by referencing your standard elevation MOA adjustments and mutliplying by the ratio for environment the Elevation MOA is achieved.


B) Windage - Windage is done in inches per mile per hour then is multiplied by the Mph of the wind.
In order to be precise the windage is done in inches instead of MOA. it needs to be converted heres and example.

You Ballistics Cheat Sheet for the day says the windage at 900 yards is 5.2 Inches per mph of wind.
you apply the ratio for your environment .90 (all example numbers. this number would represent a shooting environment with an air density lower than standard/ the cheat sheet's known MOA adjustments). the 5.2 inches is multiplied by .9to acheive 4.68?? idk the point is you mulitply that by the wind of 10 mph to achieve a total of 46.8" of wind drift to the target.

now for the conversion to MOA. 1 MOA is eqaul to 1.047" per 100 yards. meaning for every 1 moa you adjust the bullet will move 1.047" per 100 yards (our target is 900 yards; meaning that each MOA for this target is 9*1.047" = 9.423" per MOA adjustment. so take that number and divide our total wind drift by it. ie 46.8 / 9.423 = MOA Windage Change of 4.9665... now you need to know whethere your scope is 1/4 minute clicks or 1/8 minutes (how many spaces between large numbers?) you would adjust to 5 MOA for a 1/4 minutes scope equaling 20 clicks on an 1/8th minute scope it would be 40 clicks.

This is the math of shooting. to learn how go to
WWW.shooterready.com they are an excellent sight to get the math down WITHOUT wasting ammo. Once you have the math you an transfer it to your gun. waste a few rounds checking it out and youll be hitting targets @ 1800 yards in no time

I like to take the simple way after i learned how to do the hard way

There is software tha will do the exterior calcualtions for you.

if your interested i use Sierra Infinity V6 Ballistics Software
