I recently bought a super sniper scope (tasco) from super sniper .com, and now wish I had not. I did not get any instructions with the scope and worst of all with all the talk with the word texas I thought that I was buying an americian product. I am sure all you guys know it is made in Japan. I am trying to make the best of this mistake, can anyone give me any advice please. Or tell me how the scope works, or maybe some of you have tried to return stuff before and could tell me how to do so.

its one of the best tactical scopes i have seen, and i love mine, and it IS NOT a mistake. it works jsut like any other scope. you mount it in your 30MM rings, with the adjustment marked "bullet inpact up" facing up, and the windage adjustment facing to the right. and you zero the scope in.

Thank you for your responce. I do not understand the numbers on the windage  and elevation .do they have something to do with minute of angle?  When you got your scope did you get instructions?        PS I am a novis shooter at that so I dont unstand alot about these types of scopes

the numbers are just markings to reference to rememeber where it was if you move it to adjust for windage, or elevation. each click is 1/4"@100 yards.

What are all the extra lines in the cross hairs? There are four on ea. side

Under the windage and elevation dials there are also lines, what are those for?

those are what are called mil dots. each one is one milliridian, and it 3.6MOA from center to center. there used to be a huge post chris put on here to explain it, but i cannot find it now. maybe he has the link, and he should be on some time tomarrow.

Thank you for your input. I will keep the scope, hopefully I will figure it out. I am mounting it on a 338 Win Mag. Do you know of any books or websites that you can suggest that will help me? I will look forward to talking to Chris and if there is anyone else out there that has seen it please let me know. Thanks again.

You have just bought one of the most popular and successful scopes on the market today. Sorry about the instructions not being in the box. If you give me a call tomorrow I can set you up with some instructions...... 972-617-7056.

 

Once you get the scope mounted the next thing is to sight it in. Set up a target 100 yards away. Now take the target knobs off the scope by removing the three set screws located on the sides. This can be done with the allen wrench provided in the box. Once removed you will now see a gold rod sticking up with a slit on the top. This is what is turned when the knobs are turned. Zero the scope in by turning the rods with a screw driver. Once you have the scope zeroed in.... replace the target knobs. Put them back on so that the "0" is lined up with the indicator line on the scope. You can now crank your knobs like crazy and when you return them back to "0" you will always be zeroed in at 100 yards.

 

Now that you have your scope zeroed in you can now play with it at different ranges. Each of the lines on the knobs can be used as yardage markers. Say you want to zero the scope in at 500 yards. Well just start cranking your elevation until you are hitting targets at 500 yards. Remember or write down how many clicks it took so you can go back to that range without guessing.

 

The most complicated part of this scope is the reticle. It is a mil dot reticle used for range finding. You should invest in a mil dot master. It will help you out extremely. The little dots you are referring to are mil dots. You will learn a lot more about the reticle once you start researching.

Have fun

"Homes for Unhappy Scopes"

 

Dale, I would be more than happy to set up a California chapter of this worthy organization.

 

Flyn_y, you mentioned that you are a novice shooter.  Does that mean that you are new to firearms in general, or just new to rifle shooting?  If you are new to rifle shooting, I would suggest protecting yourself from recoil the best you can.  You've got a caliber there that can kick like a mule, especially in a light rifle.  If that forces you to develop a flinch, getting that scope right will be the least of your problems.  Try to use s houlder pad, soft recoil pad, etc.  Also, when (and if) shooting from the bench the position is very important.  Talk to some people at your shooting range, they'll show you how to setup so that the recoil does not beat you up too much.

 

As for the scope, it is a very nice scope at very good price.

 

Ilya

That is what I was wondering.

.338WM

Fly,

Observe proper eye relief, don't want you to get a black eye.

I've met some people who are not recoil sensitive at all.  I am not one of them.  It took me a little time to get rid of the flinch acquired while shooting an 8mm Yugo Mauser with hot Turkish ammo (154 grains at slightly over 3000fps) with steel butpad and only a t-shirt of clothing to protect me.  I shudder to think what a 338 WM would have done to me when I was just starting up.

STEEL BUTTPAD!!!!!!?????? hell, i think the 338 would be easier to shoot. i dont mind recoil, but a loud gun, i flinch, so as long as i wear hearing protection, im steady as a rock, unless we're talking about the nitro express calibers, and un braked 460 weatherby's.

That was my first attempt at shooting rifles.  My friend and I bought a Yugo M48 Mauser and some Turkish ammo.  We would shoot about a hundred rounds each at the range.  Needless to say, my shoulder did not appreciate that.  After a while we figured out that a slip-on recoil pad is not a bad thing, but the flinch was already there.

I have been hunting and shooting in new mexico for about 10 years. I have a few diffrent firearms that I like to mess around with, anything from my 1911 springfield to the 30/30 I carry in my saddle. This year I drew a once in a life time oryx hunt so I am getting out my 338, but I want to take this to the next level, not just for one hunt. In the past I have had scopes (moderate ones) sighted in at 200 yards and if a target was further than that I would aim high (usually at the back bone) and it would work, but now this is not good enough so this is how I came across this scope.

When sighting in the rifle place a 25 lb bag of shot between your shoulder and the butt. I do this with my .416, somewhat ackward but well worth the effort.
