I recently acquired a Springfield Armory 6-20X 56 mil dot scope. I haven't put it on a rifle yet but will soon. Everything seems to move/turn freely as it's supposed too. I'll find out for sure when I actually do some shooting. My question concerns the markings on the elevation and windage turrets proper. There are lines and corresponding numbers which go from 1 to 8. 1 being closest to the tube and 8 being furthest from the tube. The closest I can get to the tube turning the adjuster in is to the 5 mark, both turrets. I can back off past the 8 mark on both turrets. Is this normal or should I be able to get closer to the lower marking ?
There are four allen head locking screws around the circumference of each adjuster. By loosening or removeing them will I be able to move the adjuster up and/or down on the turret proper ?
Any and all comments/help will be greatly appreciated.Question
Thanks,
Bill B.

Zero the scope then remove the adjusters and set at the zero, this will help you to keep track of your come ups, and also should you use several different rounds.

I meant reset the adjusters at the zero once the scope is zeroed.
