On my last outing to Yellowstone I noticed that the coarse adjustment knob on my scope was spinning freely. There is a super small hole in both the coarse and fine adjustment knobs. Did I lose a very tiny screw or how do I tighten things down so that the coarse adjustment works again?

The "U" indicates Up on the elevation dial, and the "R" indicates Right on the windage dial. Turn the elevation dial clockwise to move the point of impact up, counterclockwise moves down. Similarly, turning the windage dial clockwise moves Right, and counterclockwise moves left. Here's a scan from the Zeiss Conquest manual:
This can only be due to a "broken" scope. To be sure, you can put your gun in a vice (cushion it) and put the crosshairs on a fixed point. Without moving the gun, crank the adjustment knobs a good 10-15 clicks in one direction each, and see if the crosshairs move from where you had them pointed. If they do not, the scope must be replaced. If they do move, perhaps you should try adjusting the scope quite a bit more between shots. The best way to sight it in requires a helper. Fire one shot with the crosshairs on the bullseye. Then, without reloading, put the crosshairs back on the bullseye, and have a friend adjust the knobs until the crosshairs move to the ACTUAL point of impact of that shot. It is essential NOT to move the gun while doing this. This method allows me to sight any gun in with only 2 shots (and a few for confirmation, of course). Best of luck!
ok im just guessing,but if you look around the outside you may see tiny holes that are filled with filler and underneath those will be set screws,with a fine screw driver you can tighten them. if not then problem is internal.good luck...firstname.lastname@example.org
I hunt in Wyoming so I understand your dilemma. I recommend using running tap water to take off the clay and mud. Let dry and repeat if you need to. That will allow the bonds the clay and mud have on your scope to loosen and fall away between rinses. This will save your scope's finish. When you get ready for your lenses take extra care! I use ammonia free towelettes i get at the local electronics store to leave a streak free shine on my lenses. Using ammonia or alcohol will break down and ruin the fog proof and water proof coatings you can enjoy with your optic now. Otherwise that's the best recipe for getting your optic back to 100%
its real simple at the top and on the side of the middle of the scope you will find 2 knobs. unscrew the knobs and you will find 2 flat head screws one for each knob. one will say up with an arrow the other willsay right with an arrow. go to the gun range. set the rifle up on a bench ,fire, adjust the screws up or down left or right until the bullet and the crosshair matches one click of the screw will equal out to 1/4 of an inch adjustment. if you change ammobrands you need to do this again.you will never be perfect but at 100 yards you should get 3 bullets in a 3 inch circle.
