I put my Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40 on my Ruger Charger 10-22. The gun is new but Ive had this Zeiss for a while on another .22 caliber gun and it is fantastic scope. I fastened this on my new Ruger with a set of brand new rings.  After shooting 3 shots I saw the impact was well below center of my paper target - but the groups were good and solid. So I just adjusted the clicks and got closer to center. But there I ran out of clicks/adjustments. I cant get it high enough to sight it in at the 50 yds range I want it to be.  The impact is too low. It stopped about 4 inches low, and now I ran out of clicks. I checked the rings, they look fine with no clearance problem and I even tried to swap them. No improvement.
 
I never had this problem before to run out of clicks on my scopes......so I wonder what to do??? Any suggestions.
 
Thanks

I would swap the rings, front to back and back to front, if that doesn't work then you may be needin' some new rings being you know the scopes good.

i has a Steiner Penetrator scope one time that was running out of adjustment before reaching zero. I was using dual dovetail rings had to drop down to the two piece with the windage screw. Those old German scope just didn't have much adjustment in them.

The simple solution is to get a set of burris signature rings and offset bushing kit. you have to buy the insert kit seperately. then just use which ever offsets you need to compensate for your given problem. .... for the problem you describe you could probably use a + 10 in the top half of your front ring and a - 10 in the bottom half of your front ring and use the "0" bushings that come with the rings in your rear ring. you can use the inserts in a multitude of combinations to correct different problems, just always be sure to use a + and a - of the same number in the same ring. I will post more info on using these rings if you need it...just let me know. hope this helps!

 Before I bought new rings or bases I would try and bring the scope back to mechanical zero and then try sighting in again.
 Bring elavation and windage all the way out, then count the number of clicks to bottom them out, divide this number by 2 and bring out that many. Your scope will now be centered just like when it left the factory when new, now try and sight in. If it doesn't work look for a 20moa base for your gun.

Last month  the same thing happen to me on a T/C pro hunter[460 mag] using a Conquest 3.5-10x50.The zeiss worked fine on my Remmy700 police .223.tried everything mentioned above except reversing the rings as I use Tally's so I made life simple I put the Zeiss back on the .223 & put my new SWFA SS10x HD on the T/C, guess what?No problem with the SS.Love that sniper scope!
