Re: New scope tracking problems
Try doing what the others have said, over adjust -then back, tap the knobs after adjusting. Heck, John Burns does both to his Leupold in the video I have from him. Basically what it boils down to is the erector system isn't moving like it should when you make an adjustment. That happens with cheap scopes and it isn't the end of the world if that is all you have. What you should do, if you can't fork out the money for a better quality scope, is once you get it sighted use the mil reticle. If you don't know how to use a mil reticle don't sweat it. The dots will be "on" at different ranges with different power settings...just make sure the scope holds zero, and through the entire power range...you need to go out and shoot it to find out where its hitting. Or, get a target with inch increments and set it up at 100yards. Change the power ring and note how many inches apart the dots are, or you can do it in moa, or you can find where your the correct power setting for the scope to mil properly. The point is don't sweat over having a cheap scope, just learn to use what'cha got.
