I have a varmint 4-16x50 with a 300+yd focus on it an it's mounted on a ruger 10/22 with a archangle stock im having a problem with sighting it in no matter  what yards im at. iv got it max out on the up an down dial an it still wont put them on paper iv took it apart to see if i had an bolts to tight an/or any to lose.

Are you saying that you took the scope apart or just removed it from the rifle? What brand of scope is it? If I am reading your post correctly, the scope has a 300 yd fixed focus. This may not be very pratical for a 22lr.

Welcome to the OT work with us and we can help get you up and running. There are some smart fellows here.

it is a barska varmint scope. when i first go it i sighted it in for hitting shotgun shell at 50 yds it work great till yesterday for some reason when i tried to sight it in for 75 to 100 yds it was putting them 6 inches below even when i went to 25 yds.i just took it off the rifle i tore the gun apart for cleaning then i went back out an tried to see if loosing some of the screws would help an it didn't. its not fixed focus you can go from 20 to 300. a friend of mine has the same kind of scope on his 22 an his works great.

It seems that you have a dud scope.

Put your friends scope on your rifle and give it a try.....

My guess is also that the scope is bad.

I think i figured out your problem.... lol
 
I too agree your scope is bad.   Why not return it and get one of the vortex corssfires on sale for $99.00 they aren't that great but they are very servicable and most have had decent luck with them.  Plus if you have a problem Vortex's warranty is second to none in the industry.

Obviously you have a nice rifle set up so its time for some better glass.  Therer are a couple of routes you can go but to shoot at different distances you need either tactical / target knobs or a balistic reticle that works for your cartridge.
