scope adjustments

4 posts in this topic

I bought a new scope and the directions tell you what the increments are (EX: one click is 1/4 inch at 100 yards) It isn't clear on the left-right or up-down use.

By turning the up dial in the direction of the up arrow is this bringing the bullet impact up?

And turning the other dial left what does it do to the bullet trajectory.

May be simple, but I want to feel comfortable when I go to sight my gun in.

Also, I have an semi-automatic Is there a way to bore sight it?

Thanks!

actually, you are not changing the bullet path (trajectory) when you adjust your scope. You are moving your cross hairs to the spot where the bullet hits. Typically your windage (right to left) and height (up & down) dials are marked with an arrow in the direction you want to adjust to. Do yourself a favor at the range and go to 25 yards 1st. You'll save time, agony, and ammo. Get dead center at 25 in 3 shot strings then move out to 100 and make adjustments.

If you have someone with you or have a shooting bench that can secure the firearm, here is a "trick" that can help you sight your rifle in two shots (you must be on the paper with your first shot):

After taking a shot, say at 100 yds, reposition the firearm at your original aiming point (bullseye). Secure the firearm at this point. With the firearm secured, adjust elevation and windage until the crosshairs are on the first bullet hole. You should now be sighted-in.

    • I have seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

    •   Shouldn't be hard to come up with a way to fill a 1/4 inch gap, it seems to me.   Rip some strips of something, maybe even that synthetic decking, trex or something.    Then you could have the vinyl

    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
