Where can I get a manual for a Redfield 6-18x accu trac scope?

Dear Carl,

I have the same problem and have not been successful finding an actual manual. However, if you go to "" there is a link for general instructions. It is under "Redfield Scopes" and then scroll down to "How to use the AccuTrac." However, it does not give the starting point of the instructions and only gives the table for the different dials. I will try to explain what those 2 lines at the top of the reticle are for.

The average whitetail from the top of the shoulder to the bottom of the chest should fit exactly inbetween these 2 lines when the zoom is used correctly. If you notice, the yardage counter in the bottom left (4:00 position) it will tell the yardage of the deer when you zoom in or out and the torso fills these 2 lines. You may also notice it starts at 200yds. Thats because you need have your rifle zeroed in at 100 yds. So there's no point displaying less than 200 yds. This is where the different dials come in. For example: the deer is 300yds away. You zoom in or out until the torso of the deer is inbetween the 2 lines then look at the yardage in the 4:00 position. It should read approx 300yds. Then you dial up to the number 3 position on the elevation knob and aim as you would if the deer where at 100ds.

Look up which dial you need on the ABOUSA site on the AccuTrac tables I mentioned earlier. You might be lucky and find the dial you have is the right one for your caliber. If not, this company was once the offical repair facility for Redfield, Colorado. They also have the different dials for sale but are quite expensive...$10--$30 each.

Hope this helps,

Siting in scope 2 ft hi at 25 yds no adjustment

well at 25ft you will run out of drop, its all down to how high the scope is above the barrel when its fitted to the rifle a 30-06 should be set up over 100 yds and shooting out that far it will be shooting low,,your rifle will shoot right out to 1000yds so you will get about 5ft drop out that far,,,and by the way,,,its very very dangers to discharge your rifle into a sand bag closer that 30 yds,, you may well get hit by a bit of the bullet jacket being striped off the bullet and coming back at you so done do it, right! shoot it over 100yds
however if its still shooting hight at say 50yds the only way to drop the point of aim is pack out the front of the scope mount with a strip of 35mm film slip it under the front ring (not the eye end) and sit the scope on it then do up the screws to nip it up this will lift up the front of the scope and it will shoot lower,,also if you were to put a strip under the eye end it razes the point of aim, i do this often for the members of my club on much biger rifles than 30-06's
and they dont drift or move off aim its a cheap fix, or you need a new mount?

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

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

Tasco 6x24x42 cosistancey issues afield.

It has to settle in to the mounts an the mounts to the gun. You take a screw driver and tap on the scope as you adjust it. Tap with the handle and just tap it not bang. every time you make an adjustment tap it. The 222 does not give a great kick so you do not get the settling from that, you have to cause it by taping the scope with the screw driver.

Sirs Shooting 25-06 dead on @ 100 yds., shot @ 200 yds hit 12" high, shoot again and the second bullet hit right at the first hole. Shooting H&R Handy Rifle, Hornady 117 gr. bullets Please advise to what...

sounds like it could be the scope more than any thing but shoot at 100 yd 5 shot group and see if it groups if if shots dance around on target make shure your mounts are tight there is time that companys send screws for the mounts that are to long for the holes that are taped in the gun the mount mite feel tight but could have play yet witch make your gun not shoot well you could also try setting the scope on 4 power shoot a shot at 50 yards then crank it up to 9 power shoot a shot if bullet impact moves it is the scope hope i helped ya out and good luck
