Scope Adjustments

Read this tip to make your life smarter, better, faster and wiser. LifeTips is the place to go when you need to know about Answer User Questions about HuntingScopes and other Hunting Scopes topics.

I would like to know when you are sighting in a rifle (7mm mag. with leop. scope 1/4 click) if the bullet is hitting to the right which way should I turn the adjustment to bring the bullet back to the left?

Scope Adjustments

Most Leupold scopes have micrometer-style elevation and windage adjustments and a click for each adjustment division can be both felt and heard so scope adjustments can be made without looking at the knobs.

The letters on the elevation and windage dials refer to the direction that the point of impact of the bullet is moved when an adjustment is made so moving the windage to the left will bring the bullet to the left.
