It's a common misconception to think that you're moving the bullet impact on target, when in fact you're moving the scope's reticle to look where the rifle is shooting.... So if your shooting left of your target.. you want to move the crosshairs to the right.
Hope this helps, mark the Gunsmith

I'm looking for a manual or instructions for a rifle scope simmons blazer model 800506? Scope has a boresighter built in; I'm not sure how to use.

your best bet is to locate your local shooting club and ask someone experienced with specialist scopes. As for now, all I can suggest is to sight the scope in at 3x power. I'm not sure about a boresight on this scope, since is is at the extreme budget end of zoom scopes. If you mean it has a rangefinding (or ballistic) reticle, then you might try here: for basic usage guide. The reference distances will vary according to several factors, including but not exclusively: bullet weight, muzzle velocity, firing angle, windage adjust, wind direction.

They should be able to assist you with this problem. Good luck. :)

Non-muzzleloader use

I never thought about it but I don't see why it would not work.The only issue would be recoil, and recoil is recoil.I am considering putting a scope on my Sharps replica and only wish it to look authentic.Good Luck
