20 Most Recent Tasco Target/Varmint 6-24x42mm Rifle Scope Mil Dot Reticle Questions & Answers


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.

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

Sight in your scope, Loosen the set screws and zero the dials the re-set the set screws. This will make it easy for you to adjust for distance and wind from the zero setting when in the field shooting. Then you can go back to your zero.

No, the cross hairs remain fixed. The zoom serves only to magnify the field of view.

To raise the point of impact, turn the elevation screw counterclockwise. To shift left, turn windage screw clockwise. If you raise the horizontal cross hair you will lower the point of impact of the bullet. If you move the vertical cross hair to the right the shot placement will go to the left. Thats just the way it works. Point your right index finger at a spot on the wall, and sight down your finger like looking at sights, then take your left index finger and pretend it is a horizontal cross hair above your shooting finger, then raise your left finger a set amount above the right, then move your hands back to the shooting position not changing the distance in between, using your left finger now as the sight. You will see your shooting finger is now pointing lower than before. This is now the new point of impact, lower not higher. Hope this is clear as mud and helps Fix Ya up.

This happens a lot during bore sighting, - no shock to the scope to jar the cross hairs. So take your screwdriver and use the handle - rap the scope or better just tap it. Not hard enough to bend/dent it but jar it so things can move if need to.

I have the chart for the TR624X40MM BDC rifle scope. Send me an e-mail to [email protected] with your e-mail address or fax number and I can send you a copy.

This depends entirely on what class of cartridges the scope was built for. Different cartridges will drop more or less at a specified distances based on starting speed and ballistic coefficient. If your scope is built for a .223 and you are shooting a .223, then it will work fine. If you mounted it on a 45-70 however, the bullet will drop much more quickly and your necessary scope adjustments will not match the markings on your scope.

The cross hairs don't actually move when you adjust a scope, instead, they are contained within what is called the erector tube. When you adjust your scope you are actually moving this tube, thus the cross hairs do not move around in your field of view

The Tasco is not a 600 yrd scope by any means. If you want to get rid of them, there are plenty of deer hunters who will use it at 100 yards and never go beyond that. The MOA is usually imprinted on the windage dial, it will have a little fraction or a decimal there telling what it is at 100 yards. There are a couple good scopes out there, Nikon and Pentax are decent. Leupold is about the best. It will deliver beyond your eye vision and rifles potential. I have a Bushnell on my M-40, mainly because I can't afford a $1000 scope, but I can shoot door knobs off at 200 yards all day. The scope is a piece of junk, but I have it set up right and it works, Hope this helps.

You can get to the cross hairs of a scope, but not much further without some special tools. Take off the rear lens, just unscrew the whole thing, and you will see inside there a ring with slots in the side? A small screwdriver in one of the slots should spin the threads out. You should be able to remove the cross hair tube, inside of it on the front, you should have another lock ring with the slots, spin the cross hairs straight and lock them down. This is a basic scope, I'm sure they are all different, but basically the same. Try it. You cant hurt it, it's already broken, and you will have to send it back out again if you fail. I don't know what they charged you, but there is a guy on ebay advertising scope repair, $45, all scopes.Hope this helps.

after you sight the rifle in at say 100 yd. lift the turret and line up the 100 yard mark on the turret to the mark, then push the turret down onto the scope and set the screw. some times the turret takes a lot of pressure to push back on.
