    OK got my scope mounted, everything lapped, leveled, snugged down. use the old bore sight of looking thru bore at a spot on target, cross hairs were couple inches high, so I turn the dial down and the cross hairs move up away from target dot, I move dial "up" and it lowers into the target dot, is this normal when bore sighting that you turn the dial opposite of direction you need it to go?
    thanks

    Dont feel badly.... I screw it up with every scope I mount!!! If I cant see some sort of target while looking thru the scope at the same time....I end up turning the screws the wrong way.....:)

    While looking at the same time it doesnt matter which way I turn the screws....I can see the reticule move and can see if Im going the correct way.......if Im not I can STOP....and twist the screw the other direction!!lightbulb

    Dad never said I was the brightest bulb in the pack!.......lol
