Do you have bullet drop for the 450 Bushmaster

From a friend - All bullet drop depends on the bullet weight, load and barrel. So, a 450 bushmaster with 20" barrel on it and done some work with it the past few days. After some trouble dialing in the scope multiple times I finally got it on at 100 yards. With a 100 yard zero (around 1.5" groups which isn't too good but I believe it is due to my scope which is going to get replaced shortly) we shot it out at 300 yards to see what it would do. We calculated the drop to be approximately 30" with the 100 yard zero. First few shots we were not on paper so we raised hold point up a few inches and we had our first mark. After 2 more shots we had a group to measure from. Back at the house we measured the 3 shot group at 300 yards to be 7.5 inches. (again I am confident this can perform better with a better optic) and 37.5" low. With a 2000 fps velocity and 250 gr bullet from Hornady, it puts the ballistics at

100 yrds- 0" drop, 2030 ft lbs energy, 1912 fps
200 yrds- 9.5" drop, 1067 ft lbs energy, 1386 fps
300 yrds- 37.5" drop, 760 ft obs energy, 1170 fps

I am unable to adjust the elevation? It seems to be stuck at 10 inches below center at 100 yards and 4 inches at 50 yards on a 243 rifle. Nothing I do moves it up?

If the scope is out of adjustments and still low, you have to shim the rear base. I'd start with two thicknesses of beer can.

Throwing one of three shots

Not enough information. Is it consistent? Are you using the same ammunition? Distance? Rifle? Iron sights or Scope? etc.

If you are using a scope, it is possible that the scope is loose. If you are firing off-hand, it is probably you. If you are shooting at 1000 yards, you group is actually pretty good.

If you are benchresting your rifle, make sure you are not resting the rifle on the barrel, this can throw shots all over the place.

Having trouble sighting in at 100 yards using the center crosshairs off of a led sled shooting rig. groups are barely 14 inches now and it was shooting well a few months ago. please advise Travis

Something is wrong with the mounts, they have to be loose or something. I can hit better than that with iron sights. Unless the internals of the scope are loose. You have it mounted in a sled? Is it bolt action? Take out the bolt, sight down the bore at the target and make it stay there, peek through the scope without moving the gun, The cross hairs should be on the target, if not, you are off to start. Setting up your rifle like this will put you on paper at 100 yards. Check it out.

Tlescopic sight

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 put a nikon scope on my new model 7 260 cal.and have bought factory ammo,and loaded no less than 150 rounds of different loads.i can't shoot a group even close to what i want.i have a nikon on my 700...

There are a multitude of reasons why you can't achieve your required group. Factory ammo is excellent now days, and I know a person who consistently groups under 1 inch at 100 yard using only a sling as an assist. Do you take your scope on and off, this will upset its ability to perform. When attempting your grouping, you do use a rest? Have you had the head space of you bolt checked. How old is the barrel, and how many rounds have been through it. What is the length of the barrel.
I am assuming your model 7 is a Remintong Sporting rifle. As good as their write up is, they are not known for high MOA accuracy, but still very good for hunting. The reason I know this is I help a lad sight in his Remington 700 .308 and the best we could get out of it at 100 yards was two and a half inches. Any way, I have given you plenty to think about, mull over it and all the best, I do not think your problem is your scope.

How to set my bushnell scope 3-9x40 for 200 yards

The Bushnell 3-9X40 has been around for quite some time in several forms, but it is pretty standard to set it like any other scope.

With the gun resting solidly on sand bags or something like a Lead Sled, shoot at a target with a 1" grid on it. Those targets are a free download at, but you have to browse to find them. Targets No: 10049 or 10058 are both usable, if you can see a 1" aiming point with a 9 power scope at 200 yards.

With a known point of impact (POI) at 200 yards, you can move the POI to where you want it (inside the caps at the center of the scope, there are adjusting screws or slots). The norm is 1/4" per click (the adjuster can usually be felt to click) at 100 yards or four 1/4" clicks for an inch. At 200 yards, the adjustment will be twice what it is at 100 yards or 1/2" per click.

Make your adjustments, using the grid on the target to tell you how many inches it needs to move, and shoot the target again to confirm the adjustment is correct. It's pretty standard to shoot at least a three shot group to ensure the bullets are reasonably close to each other.

Another method is to set the POI at a certain number of inches high at 100 yards and assume it's right at 200 yards. If the mid range trajectory, for your cartridge, at 200 yards is X inches high at 100 yards, you can set your POI to that X inches high and be pretty close at 200 yards.

How to use open sights on sks rifle... is it in meters or yards,,and does the 30 on sight mean 30 yards or 300 yards....hope you can help thanks bill...

all my SKS are set up in meters. 100 meters =110 yards (not exact but close for open sights) 200M=220Y,300=330 ect. 300 meters is max std. range for 7.62x39mm for battlefield use. 100 is about max for use on deer for a reasonabley clean kill,IF YOU MAKE A GOOD HIT ! Also I dont use hollowpoint rounds on deer in this load, not good penitration if heavy bone is hit. Use pointed soft point for better results on deer. learned from exp. in using it. HP. rounds tend to explode on surface or 1 inch in.

I can shoot my centerpoint scope on my .22 and it

When adjusting a scope just move a few clicks at the time, after every few clicks tap the scope with a screw driver handle. Fire 2 rounds for group tap and fire the third round it should be in line with the 2. Keep that up till on target. Let the gun sit till cold and re-fire for grouping, 2 rounds, wait then the third. To keep shooting round after round can get the reciver warm enough to wedge the scope in its bases, causing your problem.
