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.

What are the marks below the crosshairs


They are used to indicate elevation needed to hit your target at various ranges. The distances should be indicated in your owner's manual. For instance, if calibrated for .223 remington, and sighted in at 100 yards, the first might be 200 yards, the 2nd 300 yards, etc.

How to adjust rifle scope


You need to sight in the scope and rifle to 100 yards then reset the dial making sure the knob as the manual says
do a check sight in
Then you turn on the electronics
the drop number you input is 112 and the BC is 55
as you haven't given an altitude for sight in or shoot site I have allowed for them being equal
you now shoot at a target at 400 yards and for each inch below or above the aim point add or subtract 6 from the drop number
drop number entered is 112 and your shot is 4 inches low
4x6=24 so your new drop number is 136
and if 4 inches high the drop number is 4x-6=-24 new drop number 88 so you now change the inputted drop number to the ones you have and shoot a few groups at 400 to confirm point of impact and aim point and adjust accordingly
Forgot to explain that the 112 drop number is the calculated drop for your round at 750 yards and that you are changing it by confirming the actual drop at 400 and the scope is calculating internally for 750

How do you make adjustments, towards the shot or towards center of the target?


You move the cross hairs to the shot. Set up your gun on a bench and start by firing at a target out at about 15 yards. Once you are "on paper" set your cross hairs on the center and fire a 3 shot group Adjust the scope to the group. if the group is down 3 inch and left 4 inch. Adjust your scope accordingly. Then Fire another 3 shot group, until you are shooting center. Every time you adjust your scope tap the barrel of the scope with a screwdriver handle to keep the cross hairs from sticking. Once on at 15 yards move out to your max range and adjust to that.

I have the thompson center muzzleloader trumiph.Having trouble sighting it in,shooting thompson tc bullets 250grain shockwave. with 2 triple 7 pellets and triple 7 209 primer. shoot and hit bulleye...


One thing about muzzle loaders, you should wipe or clean the bore after each shot. You need to find a method that works for you. I have an old CVA and I have to wipe the bore after each shot to keep it accurate, if shooting for fun I do not. But I would use my rod and with one patch in and out just to keep the fowling down.
Lets think of it this way. Even with the new powers they tend to build up. Now this build up causes each shot to have a different pressure and then each shot will run down the bore different. Hence one shot here another there.
Then there is the primer itself, The 209 primer has a very hot flame and can cause a bit of fouling.
See this link. Primers cause accuracy problems. It may help you understand what is going on. But the easy fix is to learn; wipe the bore after each shot. Use the same method to load powder, press the bullet in the bore, seat the bullet on the powder pellets, fire the gun, wipe the bore, start over doing the same steps, same motion, same pressure each time.

I zeroed in my 25/06 at 100 yards. at 200 yards 1/4 inch high using 2nd line on drop compensator , at 300 yards shot 41/2 inches high using 3rd line on compensator. What am I ding wrong


It sounds good to me, don't forget, the 25-06 is a flat shooting round, you have your scope pointing up, the bullet crosses the line of sight twice, One at 100 yrds, your zero and the other on it's way down at about 500 yards. You can check the ballistic coefficient of that bullet and see where you need to be zeroing it in at. I would think about 250 yards, will be 1 1/2 low at 100 yards, 3/4 inches low at 200 yards, dead on at 250, then it will start coming down, say 8 inches low at 400 and 18 inches low at 500. Something like that. So your BDC will not be needed till you reach out past 300 yards, which is varmint country stuff. I have my .22 marlin sighted in at 100 yards, and it will put the lights out on anything at that range. You can probably find the charts on line someplace, if you don't have a reloading manual. Check it out.

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 http://targetz.com/, 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.

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.

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.

Sighting in red dot shotgun scope


Load your gun up and when you can shoot it, aim with your new glass(Scope) and lay out a group of three slugs, not buckshot, (i'm assuming your shooting a shotgun). Then use some trial and error to tighten your dot to your grouping. I don't blame you for the confusion, but normally, most scopes set up for this adjustment pattern are moving your target according to the knobs, not your crosshairs or dot. Another option you have is to buy a laser bore sighter. then you can play with adjusting your scope for in the field or wherever with much more comfort when you need to. You can find them online at walmart or almost any sporting goods store these days, yes they save ammo and yeas they save time, but i still shoot to make sure i'm dead on after using mine.
