Riflescope can be an intimidating piece of gear. A lot of people have it mount at the local gun shop and never touch it again. But if you familiarize yourself with a couple of key techniques, adjusting your riflescope and even moving them between rifles can be a quick and painless process. Three main aspects to consider when adjusting your riflescope are: getting right EYE RELIEF Making sure your scope is level Fine-tuning EYEPIECE FOCUS EYE RELIEF: Everyones build different with different proportions. Knowing how to set up your scope for your body is critical to performance of scope. One of the first things to consider is EYE RELIEF. EYE RELIEF is the distance from EYEPIECE lens to your EYE. Every model of scope has an optimal EYE RELIEF, so youll have to look up your scopes specs when youre mounting it to know about where is should sit on the rifle in relation to your EYE. Also, note that EYE RELIEF changes depending on what magnification youre on. Change isnt very big, so it is best to take those two numbers and split the difference between them; that will give you your ideal EYE RELIEF. Setting your EYE RELIEF can be a pretty simple process. First, place the scope in rings and put ring tops on, but not tightly. Make sure the scope can still move around. Next, mount a rifle like you were going to shoot-ideally this is done on a table or stable platform. You want to be able to see big images that fill up the entire EYEPIECE lens. If youre too far away, the image will be small; too close and you will get a lot of black around it, which is called a vignette. Shoulder rifle with your eyes close. Get in your most ideal, comfortable position. Once you feel comfortable, open your eyes and see where the EYE RELIEF of scope is. The reason you do this with your eyes closed is that with your eyes open, you tend to adjust your body position to get the ideal EYE RELIEF when you actually want to adjust scope, not your body position. Repeat this step a couple times to make sure the scope is exactly where it needs to be when youre comfortable on stock. Remember, if your EYE RELIEF is good, image will completely fill EYEPIECE-there will be no black edge around your sight picture. Once EYE RELIEF is set, remove elevation adjustment cap or dial. Youll want to use the post that the dial attaches to in order to get the most accurate level. With bolt remove, install level into Rifles action. It is very important that level sit all way down in action evenly-its easy to inadvertently tweak level, which will cause scope to be crook. Some leveling kits come with barrel-level attachment, as well.
