Question by mjbooth. Uploaded on April 06, 2010
you move the front sight down
Or, rear sight up.
If it's a scope just turn the knobs and the bullet impact will move in the direction you adjust. Should be a small arrow on each knob. For open sights move the rear sight in the direction you want the bullet to move. Rear sight up will raise the bullet.
Try to think of it this way: As you raise the rear sight, you are actually pushing the breech end downward, which lowers its relationship to the muzzle.
Thus, the bullet will have a more upward travel to the muzzle.
you move the back sight to follow the mistake so for you would move the back sight down of if it was shooting high move the backe sight up.
move you scope sight up or rifle sight down
wow never thought it was this confusing, but it really is difficult to grasp..good question.
Listen to Del in KS if you want to improve your shots. Listen to hunt and fish if you want to miss horribly.
It shoot low?- raise the resr sight,
Its the opposite of changing the sights on your bow, i know that much
I have to admit, I can never remember so I usually just draw myself a simple diagram illustrating my eyeball, the rear sight, front sight, all lined up on a spot below or to right or left of the target, whichever is the problem. That way I can visualize which direction I need to move the sight (usually rear sight) to correct the trajectory to the bullseye.
