Action alert on HB2011 regarding Pre-Emption

Rep Mike Turzai has committed to move HB 2011. This bill strengthens pre-emption by providing for standing and compensation of expenses in the event a local law needs to be challenged that conflicts with State gun laws. Corbett said he will sign if it is put on his desk in the remaining 11 days left to the legislative session.

This is correct, read the scop papers or look them up online, most are 1/4" per click 100Y
Quick way to get it centered, shoot center on a target (if you can get a gun bed to lock it in it really helps) then take a shot, now reallign the gun on the center you shot at, use the screws to click your way to the bullet hole. Re center your scope on target, you should be right on within a few shots.

frency you have that backwards , after your shot you line up the bullet hole in the crosshairs then move the knobs until you are on the bullseye you shot at

as a quick example if you hit to the right and now you would be turning it more to the right if done your way, which means youd be way more right the next time you shot

you shoot the gun at the bull, once you have that shot, you place the cross hairs back on the original bull. move the cross hairs using the clicks to the bullet hole, now your gun is shooting exactly where it is aiming.

If you move your gun to the hole and then move the clicks back to the bull, you will in effect be exactly 2 x as far as the first shot on your second shot.

Think of it, when you shoot the first shot, you are aiming at a virtual bull, the bullet hits where the gun is aimed at, not the scope, now you return the gun to the position it was when you originally shot it, and move the scope independent of the gun to the actual hole the bullet made, this puts the scop in alignment with the actual bore of the gun, or like i said where the hole is.

Your way of doing it, you shoot the bull, place the cross hairs where the hole is and move the gun back to the bull, you are in effect moving away from the bullet hole even further then the first shot. If the scope was 3 inch low and 2 to the right, you will now move the scope up 3 inch and 2 left to meet the bull, but the next bullet will now go 3 inch low and 2 inch right of the first bullet hole not the bull.
