When a scope loses its zero when it is dropped(in this case wind-age and elevation) can the scope be re-centered inside or do you loose that adjustment forever?

It all depends upon how severe the damage is. If only knocked off zero, but no catastrophic damage you will be ok.
I would re-zero and shoot it , dial a box pattern and see how it tracks.
If it is not satisfactiory or if you are not certain send it in for repair.
There is nothing worse than having to worry about the integrity of a scope on a big hunt.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
