I have a Weaver K9-B. This thing has AO. What is AO? how does it work? how do I use it?  The front dial has 50ft, 75ft, 100ft 50yd, 100yd, 200yd, 1000yd settings. Is there a manual /book I can read about this AO thing. 
 
Scope is 3x-9xAO mounted on a Winchester M70 pre 64 30-06. Is this a good match up?
 
Thanks

Welcome to Optics Talk. 

"AO" stands for adjustable objective. It allows you to correct parallax, "make clearer", as you look through the scope, at different ranges. 

The settings you mentioned, are a reference point in yards, at which you should be able to see at that distance, clearly. Problem is, it isn't exact though, because everybody eye sight is different. 


Sounds like a rim fire scope, but I may be wrong. Are we using this to hunt big game?

I have not used/fired it yet, maybe for wild hogs? not sure yet. Friend has farm in upper FL with hog problems? I was told that 223 did not stop these hogs, I bet 30-06 will. I also just got a socom16, will need to find optics for that next, but, one matter at a time.

Correction:

I read the stamp on the scope when the unit was in the safe with a flashlight. I miss read it. It is a Weaver V9-B 3x-9xAO. It is a El Paso Weaver pre 1984.

Update;
 
I have had two LGS mount this scope and both have messed it up. The second got it close enough that I hit paper at 100yds, but the crosshairs are not straight. They are at 11 oclock
