Hi! I am an avid target shooter. I use my T55 and my T50PBN to attach my targets to the backboard when I go to the firing range. I have somehow lost the spring assemblies for both of these staplers. I would like to get replacements , if possible?

How to use a spotting scope for shooting?

A Spotting Scope is an essential element for hunters and shooters. This small device is technically a special type of telescope used for hunting, magnifying and watching an image or object more clearly. The methods use a shooting spotting scope does not involve much difficulty.

Here is the method:

Comfortable position

For a perfect shooting experience, you need a comfortable position. If your comfortable position is unable to help you fix the targeted area, you are likely to miss the hit or glance.

Attachment of the spotting scope with the tripod

Having an accurate view of the targeted area is important. Due to this reason, shooters need to position the spotting scope with a tripod so that they can see the targeted area very clearly and accurately.

Adjustment of the magnification level

The lens and magnification level should be adjusted so that you can get the appropriate view of the targeted area.

View of the targeted area

After fixing the targeted area, you have to adjust the magnification level with the lens to view the targeted area. At the time of using scopes, you will find some problems that magnification will present. If you fix the magnification and focus firstly, you may not find the target. You have to first view the target, and you have to adjust magnification level as required. Here, you should bear in mind you will have to go with the slow magnification process because the fast magnification process cannot give the accurate target.

Adjustment of the focus
You have to know how to reset the focus because you will need to do it again and again. It may sometimes harm your eyes with the magnification level being set to high.
Focusing on target is important for shooting and the spotting scope is also important for this purpose. For acquiring a specific target, it is important to use magnification level with the spotting scope.

You should follow all the methods of using explained above. There is no alternative way to learning how to use a spotting scope for shooting except these methods.

I compete in 3d archery so I bought a new rangefinder 2 days ago and it reads 19.2 yards at exactly 20 yards is there a way to adjust it to read properly?

Page 5 of the manual states: RANGING ACCURACY The ranging accuracy of the Scout™1000 is plus or minus one yard / meter under most circumstances. The maximum range of the instrument depends on the reflectivity of the target. The maximum distance for most objects is 650 yards / 594 meters while for highly reflective objects the maximum is 1000 yards / 914 meters. Note: You will get both longer and shorter maximum distances depending on the reflective properties of the particular target and the environmental conditions at the time the distance of an object is being measured. The color, surface finish, size and shape of the target all affect reflectivity and range. The brighter the color, the longer the range. White is highly reflective, for example, and allows longer ranges than the color black, which is the least reflective color. A shiny finish provides more range than a dull one. A small target is more difficult to range than a larger target. The angle to the target also has an effect. Shooting to a target at a 90 degree angle (where the target surface is perpendicular to the flight path of the emitted energy pulses) provides good range while a steep angle on the other hand, provides limited ranging. In addition, lighting conditions (e.g. the amount of sunlight) will affect the ranging capabilities of the unit. The less light (e.g. overcast skies) the farther the unit's maximum range will be. Conversely, very sunny days will decrease the unit's maximum range.

The difference you are experiencing (20-19.2=.8 yards) is within the device ranging accuracy of 1 yard, and is in fact an error of only 4%. That is pretty accurate

In case you have lost your manual, you can download from here:

Good luck with your device.

Is there a reset option for the Yardage Pro 1000. it displays the target rectical but does not aquire a target or give a range when I depress the fire button the word laser appears the displayed find...

The laser lense or receiver may need to be cleaned try a larger target at closer range.... they don't like dark colors... blk bear is really hard to target and u usually have to select a target close to bear... same as dark colored deer.... the laser gets absorbed instead of reflected

What is good to use for a target in archery?

You can buy archery targets, but they can range anywhere from $40 -$200. If you are looking to make your own, this is a fantastic article to read: Making Archery Targets from

  • I've used targets made out of hay bales in the past.
  • You can also make them from feed/grain sacks, packing filling, sand bags or old carpet.
  • The article above will give you instructions on how to make all of the types, then some.

aimbot is a term used to describe a shooter's cheat in modern fighting war games.
It allows for perfect kill shots almost with every bullet fired.
With an aimbot, if you aim at a target, regardless of where on the target you are aimed, it will hit the kill point.
This comes in very handy if you are playing Call of Duty, or Band of Brothers, or Rainbow Six, or just about any other shooter.
I don't provide a link to any aimbots though, as to do so would be against Fixya rules and Regulations, not to mention that it would provide you with an unfair advantage over everyone else.
But, at least I have told you what it is, and what it does.

How do you zero a simmons atec 512101, I dont have a manual, or any instructions... My first scope

Hi :)

In order to familiarize yourself with shooting please go here

I stumbled across this software a month ago as an avid shooter enthusiast. I havent had the chance to fire more than 100 rounds before i touched this and most were iron sights. now i have the math to shoot any bullet in any condition upto 2000 yards :) practically military level training but not quite.

Take the training that is provided and go through it a couple of times there are a few key things to remember

when you first start go to the training range **this range is standard humidity, temperature, elevation, and barometric pressure. This means that all you have to account for is range and wind this is where to start.

1)range the target. see below for details. best to work in yards as sierra is yards too.
IMPORTANT remember if you scope in to 20x to divide your mil dot reading by 2 before your divide the inches x 27.778 or inches x 25.4? this wil give you accurate range (lol get a laser range finder for RL :)

2) Elevation - if your range is 1530yards between 35.6 moa @ 1500 and 36.2 moa @ 1550. use a calculator to determine where your range lies (sierra can be asked when producing a range card to have a set increment if set to the exact range then exact values are given :)

so 36.2 - 35.6 = 0.6 30/50 = 60% to get this divide the range in yards inbetween the increments by the increment value IE in a 100 yard increment it would differ

once you have your elevation dial it in. rounding to the closest 1/4 min of angle.

3) Windage - Windage is a little different in the windage collumn its given in inches of drift per 1 mph wind (if your having trouble with wind take the shot first hit the target read in the bottom wind speed and then calculate that windspeed and get the math first)(use this for range to infact before you delve to far into ranging ( makes for faster learning and can be written of a laser range finder and wind speed measurement accessory which 99% of shooters use now adays unless your some vet or 10000 round pro :S not thier yet)

so take your inches of drift lets jsut say i used the same method to determine the exact inches of drift between the two given (most ranges arent exactly on) and my inches per mph is 3.2 w a 10 mp wind

this is 3.2 x 10 = 32 inches of wind drift total. to conver that to rifle clicks you might remember that 1 MOA is = 1.047 inches @ 100 yards or 1.512.. @ 100 meters that means for every 1 moa you adjust your windage your bullet will travel 1.047 inches for every hundread yards the target is away

FIRST take range 1530 yards and divide by 100 yards to get 15.3 x 1.047 = MOA of windage ON THIS SHOT which happens to be 16.0191 that means for every 1 moa i adjust into the wind it will move 16.0191" per 1 moa i adjust.

Since we know that the wind will blow it 32 inches off target you divide 32 by your Inches per moa 16.0191 to get your MOA windage adjustment of 1.9976... which is rounded to the closest click of your scope (probably 1/4 min maybe 1 min you need to check how many click between the big lines on the gun.

Once you know all this stuff zeroing becomes a matter of how high you gun is over at a certain know distance. :) Sierra has that too :S


1) Targets height in inches x 27.778 / Mil Dot Reading = Range in Yards

This is where you need to start when taking a shot. The range is the most important factor as it is what the rest of the measurements are based off of. TIP invest in some evironmental accessories something that measure wind speed and direction and barrel, Temperature, Humidity, and get Barometric Pressure.

2) Your "cheat sheet" or "range card" needs to be set up accurately, there is alot of software out there that can do this for you with accurate measurements of your environment (once you get past the math of the shooting it becomes your ability to measure your evironment that makes the shots).

I use Sierra Infinity v6 Ballistics Software :) Found here

its incredibly complicated math that i havent been able to unearth without taking a 600 dollar sniper course, to determine your own range cards in varying environments (humidity and temperature vary from day to day and wil throw your bullets off over 1000 yards)

use this software before you go to the range or as you set up to print yourself the daily range card
then just use the range card and your calcualtor to hit any target you want. youll be able if you bring your laptop or they are shooting a similar load to advise others on how to zero it in :)

3) Your going to need to get some specifics of your firearm and load. the bullet is the most finickey of variables ranging greatly from grain to grain in the same caliber. These data are your bullets Feet per second(this helps determine bullet flight time which decides on bullet drop) and Ballistics Coefficient (a measure of how well the bullets retains its origional velocity against air resistance)(to not slow down)

GL and if you need help converting everthing to meters for the hell of it ive got the numbers :S

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?


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

Tasco 6-24x42mm rifle scope parallax adjustment

Here's what you need to know about Mil Dots and rangefinding.

When you look through the scope you should see 5 mil dots on each axis, your scope may have broad lines taking place of the 5th mil dot if it is a "modified" mil dot scope. For measuring purposes, 1 mil is the distance from the center of one dot to the center of the one directly above or below it. 3/4 of a mil is the distance from the top of one dot to the bottom of the one above it, or the "space in between dots". 1/4 mil comprises a single dot, the space between the top of one dot and the bottom of that same dot.

A quick calculation is Size of Target (In Yards) x 1000 / Size of target in mils = Range in Yards

Miliradian or "Mil" is an angular unit of measure, so if you were shooting at 1000 yards and moved up 1 miliradian that would be one inch impact moved up.

Anyway lets say you have a 30" target and we need to find the range... using your scope you place the bottom of the target at the CENTER of a mil dot and count how many mils up, good estimation is key... I'll draw a little text diagram, an asterisk * will be the target top and bottom, and parentheses () will be a mill dot
( * )--------(  )-----*---(  )
Now lets assume the asterisk on the left is the bottom of your target and the one on the right is the top, I put Ten Hyphens in between each dot so if you count from the left you should get about 1.6 Mils. Its real easy to do it in your head, you already know two whole dots is one mil so you just have to estimate whats to the right (or top if you were looking down a scope).

So we know the target is 30" and we have a Mil Reading of 1.6
30/36= .833 so 30" is .833 Yards

So now we can use the equation .833 x 1000 / 1.6 = 520.6 Yards is the distance of the target

Now you can also use Mil dots to do hold over for when the target moves or for wind and elevation but that gets extremely complicated.

Parallax in Rifle Scopes is explained here

There are many books and websites to confirm what I've said here, but the best way is to go out to your range and talk to some long range shooters and show them your rifle/scope etc and get hands on help.
