Question about Bushnell Banner Dusk & Dawn 3-9x40 Riflescope

1 Answer

My crosshairs have rotated yet the scope itself has not moved in its mounting. Is there an adjustment that allows me to rotate them back, or does this mean the scope is defective

You best bet is to contact Bushnell. There is no adjustment since the reticule is fixed inside the tube. The reticule should not be moving so this is a defect in your scope.

This is the Bushnell site for repairs and customer service. Contact them and explain your situation.

My elevaition crosshair wont raise high enough to raise my point of impact


your crosshair actually needs to go lower to raise the point of impact. if thats what you meant than you have a mounting/scope problem. the scope should naturally align within the adjustment range assuming the mounts are correct and the scope is functioning and mounted properly.

Cannot set wind age and elevation on a Nikon pro staff riflescope (not enough adjustment )


Check you mounts. If mounted properly you should have enough. if they are not moving at all you have prob broken the fine wires that form the crosshairs.

I cant site the scope in the adjustment ot make it go left to right will not adjust


Put the gun in a vise. Look into a mirror and align the crosshairs so that you have one set of crosshairs when viewing in the mirror. The windage adjustment is maxed to the side you are trying to adjust . This will set the parallax of the crosshairs close to zero and allow adjustment in all directions.

Hi, just bought a Hawke Varmint II 4-16x44 AO. I started searching for the zero point, before I mounted it on the rifle Itself. Because I wanted to make a bigger adjustments from the mounts when bore...


The Hawke comes with a good, lifetime warranty.
They are reported to be fast and fair about these things.
The best thing you can do is send it back and they will fix it or replace it.

Crosshairs not verticle/horizontal


Not sure what you mean, but if your scope is not mounted right the cross hairs will be off hor/vert. You can loosen the scope mounts and rotate the scope till the look right to you. You will have to re sight.

My elevation and windage adjustments aren't moving my scope. I shot 4 times and my group is 1 inch. Problem is I adjusted my scope between all 4 shots. I'm consistently shooting 7 inches high and 3 inches...


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!

Crosshairs on pentax 4.5x14x42 don't move


With modern rifle scopes the crosshairs do not move.They are designed so that the crosshairs are always centered.I have not seen a scope with crosshairs that move for about 40 years.If your scope has 1/4 minute clicks, then the strike of the bullet moves 1/4 inch at 100 yards for every click.1 inch for 4 clicks and so on.If you rifle shoots 6 inches high at 100 yards you should turn it down 24 clicks to strike dead on.Many hunters and shooters adjust their scopes to strike 1 1/2 inches high at 100 yards.Then it will be accurate to about 300 yards without further adjustment.

Simmons scope that will not stay on target


Mount the rifle with the scope and make a mark on the backstop right where the crosshairs are pointed at

Shoot several times, several shots will surley jolt the scope some.

If the crosshairs have moved much past your mark then this would indicate the scope is the issue.

If the crosshairs are still pretty well centered to the mark, its not the scope.

If at the same time your grouping looks terrible, and your scope still is on the mark, and the gun is WELL mounted, then the issue is with the accuracy of the rifle.
Make sure the rifle is mounted good for this to ba accurate .
Hope this helps

Scope


Follow these steps

1) Mount your scope.

2) Use a bean bag or rifle mount and make sure that your rifle doesnt move much from its original position throughout this process.

3) Aim with the scope and shoot at a large backstop which will allow you to see where your shot lands, where ever that may be, it doesnt matter at this point. Again, make sure your rifle doesnt move much when firing.

4) With the rifle in the same position, look through the scope and adjust the crosshairs over to where your shot landed.

5) The scope now sighted in with the rifle. Minimal adjustment may still be required but at least your well within the ball park.

Happy Shooting
