Scope tracking


Set up a target with horizontal and vertical grid lines at exactly same range your scope was zeroed Use a solid stable front and back rest on the shooting bench.

Aim at the lower red mark of the target and fire a shot (or a 3-shot group for a more reliable test), which should impact close to your aiming point if the scope is properly sighted in. If it does not, that is ok as long as you continue to aim at the same point throughout the test.

Use the turrets to adjust your ELEVATION 120 clicks (30 MOA) up and 8 clicks (2 MOA) to the left(more clicks may be used if you wish to test the tracking of your scope over a greater distance). Return both turrets to zero by counting the clicks backward until you are at your starting position.

Continue this process testing different elevations and windage. 

Finish the test by firing one more shot or group with your scope set to its starting point (ZERO). This group should be exactly on the red target. This will tell you if your scope is returning to zero properly.

Make sure the scope is properly installed, torque and the reticle and target are level and the scope is zeroed.  

Keep the same aiming point throughout the entire test (dialing process).
