I did what many people have said. Let me tell you how,
Point the cross at the target, fire. move the scope settings (up-down/left-right) to the where the mark is and than i reload the rifle, i put it back in its lil hold thing we found and made it so the cross was on the target, fire. I did this with my dad's help about 8 times. getting close, then getting far away again?

Why will it not sight accurate?

My guess is that when you place the rifle back in its "holder" (whatever that is) it's not going back in the same place....

Shoot a 3-shot group, sighting on the center of the target.... adjust the scope and do another 3-shot group.... keep going until you are on target....

On which rifle are you trying to sight-in your scope ?
Are all the hold down screws/bolts nice and tight ?

It can be used for target shooting as well which is why its in this forum, i use it for target/plinking.

He means shoot your rifle 3 times at the same aiming point/mark/dot/target.
And hold your rifle the exact same way each time you fire.

I try too. But to reload the gun i have to take it off the stand thing and than put it back and by then the entire thing's gone wonky.

Don't try using a stand for the rifle.... hold it in your hands, but rest your hands on a sandbag or even a block of wood.... Take careful aim at the target and try and shoot 3 shots aiming at exactly the same point.... All 3 shots should be very close together.... If you are shooting at about 10 yards, they should be touching each other (or nearly) with most guns.... :shock:

Once you can shoot 3-shot groups that are consistently "tight", then proceed to sighting in the gun.... If you can't hit the same spot (at least very close) 3 times in a row, sighting in the gun is pretty useless anyway.... :wink:

Here's some info on scope mounting. Make sure each ring is mounted securely in the gun grooves. They sometimes slip off when you're tightening them.

What distance are you shooting when you're sighting in the scope? If it's a short distance, you might be experiencing parallax issues. See here;
