Keep in mind Diane this is for a set distance. if you are taking a shot at a target further than your are set for (ie a target you wont get 3 shots @) remember how the bullet is travelling as it goes down range

one idea would be to set your rifle up down range and zero it in on a target (preferably paper) now adjust 1 MOA (try and have target @ 100 yards and 200 yards)

see how far the bullet moves for each moa adjustment. then check it against the next range.

this should remain constant @ a set number of inches per 100 yards.

so if you zero in @ 100 yards and then move 1 moa any direction and it adjusts (lets say and hope it is 1.047 inches") then you do the same for 200 yards. it should be twice as much movement. ie 2.094"

once you know what 1 moa represents on your scope you can adjust alot more accurately.

REMEBER the total inches of movement / adjustment per MOA is directly related to range (a precise range helps in shooting) so if your squirrel is 150 yards and your first shot is off 9" to adjust you divide 9" by the inches per moa so 1.5 (150 yards /100) X (Inches per 100 yards per moa you measured hopefully 1.047") its 9" divided by 2x1.047 = 9" / 2.094 = 4.29799

this number needs to be rounded to the nearest click on your scope (most are 1/4 MOA scopes and you can tell by looking at how many clicks/lines are inbewteen each large number on your windage and elevation dials

so to turn this into an adjustment we round 4.29799 to 4.25 which is 4.25 MOA or 17 clicks on a 1/4 min scope.

GL and any questions just post and ill help

not please rate this as fixya :)

Note i can provide EXACT information that would allow you to determine range, and windage and elevation adjustments by looking through scope and estimating range
then factoring in weather variables. NOTE you hafta enjoy math or just want to know how to shoot really well. :)

Pretty much all rifle scopes have great warranties. Send it into weaver and i'm sure they will fix it plus replace any parts. I'm sure they will charge for missing parts but it would be best for them to look at it and check it out. TP

SOURCE: How to readjust a weaver mount?

Make sure the nuts are on the same side of the rifle (both on the right OR left). The clamping mechanism can vary the centering of the scope if they are on opposite sides of the mount.

The other problem may be poorly drilled mounting holes on the receiver or scope mount, check these for alignment with your bore or barrel.

What size rings do I need to mount a weaver 6x38 rifle scope


Measure the diameter of the scope just in front of or behind the windage/elevation turrets. If it's 1 in. in diameter, you need 1 inch rings. The size of your scope tube determines the size of the rings you need.

How to set up a redhead red dot pursuit deluxe


You must have the correct rings for your base. If the scope has rimfire dovetail rings already attached, it should be easy. Remove the 4 setscrews on the top of the receiver, install the dovetail mount (use blue locktite and DO NOT TIGHTEN THE SCREWS MORE THAN 10 IN/LBS! Otherwise you may strip the threads in the receiver!).Loosen the clamps, place the scope on the dovetail mount and tighten snugly.

If it has weaver mounts, you will need to install a weaver rail to your receiver. Remove the 4 setscrews on the top of the receiver, install the weaver mount (use blue locktite and DO NOT TIGHTEN THE SCREWS MORE THAN 10 IN/LBS! Otherwise you may strip the threads in the receiver!). Install the rings in the weaver slots, tighten snugly.

What kind of base would you use on a TC pro hunter


You base must be compatible with the type of mounts you use. You will have to get a gunsmith to fix them so if you decide to use weaver mounts for example, the logically you would use a weaver rail. Be cause different mounts have different holding methods, first select the scope you are going to use. Once decided then find a set of mounts that you are happy with and from there you select a rail that will accommodate your mounts.If in any doubt, ask the person who is doing the work for you for advise.

The dovetail groves are closer on a pellet gun rifle and they ca not close enought.


You probably have rings designed for a standard Weaver style scope base.... you need "3/8" groove .22 style" rings... available from your local gun shop.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

Please give feedback!

Instruction manual for 1970's custom .22 scope with BDC


Hold the outer portion of the elevation knob and unscrew the screw on top. then pull up on the outer portion and you'll see a silver screw marked with an arrow and the word "Up". Sight the rifle at a known distance and then line up the knob with that distance as you push it down on the scope and replace the screw. I have one of these and figured this out on my own, however I'm missing the mount and would like some pictures and dimensions of the mount if any of you can get some. I'm gonna be machining a new one and would like to keep it as close to the original as possible.
