Just got an SWFA SS 1-4x24 yesterday and I'm completely new to optics altogether. I can't seem to find any info on the 'net or this site on how to adjust the scope. Found plenty of info about how to sight in, but I'm looking for a user's manual on how to zero the scope. I did have it at the range today and managed to manually adjust it to get it shooting better, but i need to zero it.

Can someone point me in the right direction...? Appreciate the help!

first focal plane mil dot based reticle with 1/10 mil clicks.  That means that you can use the reticle like a ruler to measure with and the knobs are also mil based so aim at the center of the paper target shoot a hole in the target use the reticle to measure how many mil s it is high or low and how many left or right.  If its 2.7 mils high then dial minus 27 clicks (2.7 mil s)  if its 3.2 mil s right dial 32 clicks ( 3.2 mils) left  the next shot shoud be on the center X or very close  correct until it is zeroed. After that reset the knobs and check to make sure that it is stil zeroed afterward.
