How does the scopes aim move ?
My instructions say to do it at 15 yards. Thanks.
Hello incase i have two rifles fo the same model and i am using the same scope should i zero it for both the rifles or if i do it for one rifle will it work on the other one with the same accuracy.
Amazing! thanks a lot! i have a theoretical question that i want to share!. lets say I set my scope to 20 yards, then I change distance and shoot a target which is at 35 or 40 yards, will the pellet go upwards or downwards the zero point? thanks a lot!
so just let me ask a dumb question (because whilst I’ve used rifle scopes, they were setup up already for me), so with the first shot if it’s off you can jut calculate 9provided the gun is like static, the distance it’s off by te scale on the reticle? or do u have to walk out to the target and actually measure it to be sure? Sorry i’m sure this is a very dumb question. (BTW i’m a bowhunter but want to get back into rifles again after a very long absence). Great video anyway, like your teaching approach.
where is Part 2?
Excellent. As I have aged I finally got a scope. First rate explanation.
thank you !!
I’ve been shooting for over 55 years and have bounced from long guns to pistols , but I’ve NEVER USED A SCOPE . Short distance shooting is still working. Lol . Longer range a high in a fence post looks like a squirrel. Ha ha . Great instructions. Thank you. Thank you for your service. If I’m wrong, I apologize. A superior instructor has the ability to covey comprehensive and complex information to others in a way that is simple to understand for the brightest students and the not so bright students. You sir have that gift .
Very helpful for beginners like me. Thank you so much.
beginner here, well explained! excellent !!
wow, pretty straightforward explanation, I got it now. thanks for video.
I zero my scope in on a (300) 25 meter zero target for an m-4 carbine. once I get it zeroed in on the 25 meter target I shift over to a 25 -meter scaled silhouette target with target from 70-300 meters. I do good out to 200 meters, but the 250-300 meter not so good at time as the cross hair cover the target and on top of that I 83 years old and the eyes even with glasses is not that at a long distance. (My number two son keeeps telling me to take my time between shot, he was an artillery captain. I enjoyed your videos as I learned a few things I didn’t know before I watched them. (I cut my teeth on and M-1 open sights). (Mississippi gulf Coast).
Does anyone ever change turret position while out on field instead of just hold over?
if your target is at 50yards instead of 100yards, are the clicks worth 1/8" of an inch instead?
Everytime I forget how to set her up lmao, you’d think after forty years of shooting I’d remember lmao, but ya can’t educate bacon
Counter counting. You’re dialing the shot to the middle of the scope. When I first started I thought it was the scope following the shot. Which it’s true but you are adjusting the scope and not the shot so adjustments are reversed.
Great video, I’m a beginner and don’t have anyone to learn from so this helped a lot!
I have never centered a scope. You said your scopes clicks was 1/4 per click. The chart on wall is 1 inch @ 100 yards. So the hit is at 4 inches plus 1/4 a total of 4.25 right? You said 4.5. Then you multiplied 4 x4.5. Point .5 is 1/2 inch. When your clicks are 1/4 that should be 4 x 4.25 which is 17 clicks? I am not trying be picky, I could be wrong, but I’ve never done this so whether I miscalculate or someone else does I’ll get it wrong. Please clarify.
All the way! Hooah!
What if the adjusters on my scope don’t click?
Direct and informative
thanks my man! questions answered!
Thank you very much for making this it helped!
im a sniper guy and i didn’t find this video useful.
thank you 😉
Perfect beginners tutorial

What is bullet wheel on the left side of scope
My scope is 1cm at 100m.
What do I do?
Awesome! Thank you 🙏
So is it still Multiplied by 4 if the first point of impact is top right?
How does this totally wrong explanation have over Millions views!!! You have to bring your reticles to point of impact not the other way around. If you already shooting down then shouldn’t you dial scope to bring the reticle down! You did the other way around in video.
Oh this is what does knobs do . Ok now at the very back of the scope where you look trough there’s a spiny rubber part and when I twist it it comes out a bit and everything becomes blurry
HI. How can i asses the scope mount to be level both horizontal and vertical in respect to refile itself?
Thanks so much. I just ordered my first rifle with a scope and had no idea how to set it up once I get it. I do have the MOA which is 1/4 just like your example. Thank you! Can’t wait for it to come in and go to the range
Very easy way to explain it for unexperienced people like myself. Thank you
You had made my day
Excellent, I really just needed a straight forward explanation. If I’m shooting at 150-feet than it would be half as much but yeah, I get it, thanks!!!
Stop. If you dont know this. Just dont!
Thank you so much, I just got a Remington M700, as a new gun owner I have no idea how to use it, you save my day.
Resign is too good for Sloppy Joe. He has committed treason by giving the enemy aid and comfort, colluding with the Taliban, a designated terrorist group on the US Terrorist watch list. That is treason by definition…and the penalty is death. 18 USC 2381 SPREAD THE WORD! COPY AND PASTE ON EVERY BIDEN VIDEO…LETS GET THE WORD OUT…MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Love this, went shooting today for the first time using one of the clubs air rifles which was wildly inaccurate due to the optics not being zeroed, no big deal, but when I go next time i’ll know how to adjust the scope properly, big thanks!
Thanks dude! Got my first rifle and scope! shooting it on Friday!
