How to use redfieeld 3x9x42 scope


Depends on the scope and rifle type to which it is attached.
I invested in an inexpensive laser bore such as this one for an AR: SightMark AccuDot Laser Bore Sight - 223 Model SM39001 (for AR-15)
Once the scope is mounted properly, and assuming you have not made any vertical or horizontal adjustments, set the rifle on a stable platform, insert the bore sight, point it at a target 50 (rimfire) to 100 (AR) yards out (works best in low light situation).
Once you have the laser centered on your target, make elevation and windage adjustments as necessary placing the scope cross hairs over the laser. Remove the bore sight and fire 3 rounds, then fine tune elevation and windage.

Sight in


Depends totally on the ammunition you use. It will be markedly different for a light loaded heavy bullet .38 special as compared to a fast light bullet .357. The difference could be measured in feet rather than inches at 100 yards.

There are several ballistics programs on the internet that will help you with this, but you need to know things like bullet speed, ballistic coefficient, distance, etc. to use them effectively. Something as simple as a call to the ammunition manufacturer could answer your question quickly. Just ask them the drop of the bullet at 25 and 100 yards and adjust your sights using that information.

Scope will not bore site. when cranking scope left it goes right, when cranking scope down it goes up. when goes other directions it runs out of adjustment before reaching barrel sight line by 2" in...


The sighting sounds about right to me meaning to you need to adjust the cross hairs i the opposite direction to where your point of aim is. If your sight is off 1/4 inch to the left you need to bring the barrel to the right to compensate and that's what the bore scope/site is doing. Think opposite and you'll have that tuned in a few seconds. I don't doubt that you have the correct mounting hardware BUT, it's from center bore to center scope what 2 inches so at 25'? Depending on what caliber I'd say at 25' you need to hold 2 inches high for center target. I'll just guess that you might not be able to get a zero until say about 25 yards with a 22 short. A larger bore/caliber will extend this out to possibly 100 yards.
I'm going to give you a link to a bullet trajectory chart so you can sort of see what it is I'm trying to write. you may need to cut and past this in your browser window.

Here is another chart that shows a bullet drop from the muzzle.

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.

How do i calibrate the scope to hit where im aming the crosshairs?


Bolt action? If not, ignore this, but , if it is a bolt gun, remove the bolt. Mount the rifle in a vice type clamp or a cardboard box with v's cut in it to hold the rifle steady, aim through the bore at a target 100 yards away. make the rifle stay on the target, now peek through the scope, it should be on the same target, if it isn't, move the adj up or down, left or right to get it on target, then check the bore again, then the scope again. This will put you on paper at 100 yards, fine tune it from there. Hope this helps.

I just purchased a savage .17 HMR with a cabelas pine ridge 3x9x40 tactical scope and I'm having problems siteing it in. It is shooting aout 4 inches low regadless of adjustments I try and make.


A quick and easy way to bore sight your rifle, if it is bolt action only, or an AR, mount the rifle in a cardboard box with cutouts so it will sit without tipping, remove the bolt and sight down the bore at a target 100 yards away, a mail box, or the corner of a building, make sure the rifle doesn't move, then peek through the scope, it should be seeing the same target your bore is seeing, if not, adjust your scope to it, if it won't travel that far, shim the front with pieces of 35 mm film. then check it again, if you can get it to stay there, it will put your bullet on paper at 100 yards.

I couldn't find the eurohunter model, but I checked out the website. Without a bore sighter, You can still get your scope to hit a paper plate at 100 yards by using a cardboard box. Then it will fine tune in just a few rounds. Only a bolt action though, you have to be able to see down the bore. Take a big box, or a rifle vise, cut some V's into the top edges, lay the rifle in there, pull out the bolt, find a target 100 yards away, put the bore of the rifle on it and don't move the rifle. Then put the crosshairs of the scope on the same target, check to make sure the rifle didn't move, then check the cross hairs again. You will be able to hit your target at 100 yrds, the ar 15 is an exception to the bolt action, you can see down the bore.

I have a Tasco 460 Night Vision Scope that I cannot get to group such as even in a vise it is off at 100 yards apprximatly 2 feet all over the place. Can you help?


to be honest night vishion scopes are a bit of a fad,
grouping at 100 yds? its hard at 30 yds there for shooting at people realy not small things like rats i have 4 nv scopes none realy group like a telly sight the best one is an e rushion sight that is good but hitting a bunny in the head at 30yds is very hard however try fitting a small lazer or better still 2 of them set at a range of 100yds so the two points of light are then only one point of light and your bang on at 100yds if there two colours thats even better at you wil know how far or close you are to the target by how far out the two points of light are, but i would give up on hitting the bull every time with any nv sight test it to see if its floting about first also you never sead whats it fitted to?

Hello, I have a Ruger 10/22 Target rifle with a Bushnell banner scope on it. It seems that the farther the shot the higher it shoots. I am 1'' low at 15 Yds 5 '' high at 50 yards. What the?


Hi.

http://www.rifleshootermag.com/shooting_tips/ballistics_0303/

this explains why the bullet seems to rise and fall at different distances. its not unusuall infact it will happen in 99.9% of firearms unless the firearm is set to a "Flat Trajectory" zero.

It seems like your fairly new to shooting and the "Exterior Ballistics Effects on a Bullets Trajectory"

my suggestion is that you take the time to read and DL or buy this software.

Sierra Infinity V6 Ballistics Software (i Dl'd it) and it is fantastic.
along with that they have a long range shooting simulator that will teach you about the mathematics of shooting and allow you to get some in expensive practice away from the range and prying eyes. This software will teach you to

1) Range a target just by looking at it in the scope
2) determine Elevation adjustments
3) Windage Adjustments
4) Accomodate the most daunting of variables for the amatuer shooter the weather
(any shooter can learn how the gun fires on a perfect day. it takes a good shooter to take into account the Barometrice Pressure, Humidity, Elevation (from sea level), and Temperature. And be able to hit the first time)

Regardless of your skill level this software is indispensable it will teach you the cores you need to know for when your software is broken or your pc is broken or its just not fiesable at the time.
it will increase the range from which you can shoot. (in 4 hrs i was shooting to 6oo yards, in two days 2100 yards)

ill check back incase you need other info like how to determine zero by inches of center
