I just purchased a M1A with a Leatherwood 3-9x40 Camputa scope. I don't have any directions on the scope so what is the best way to zero the scope for elevation and windage????

Boresight it first.  Then shoot it and adjust the nobs according to impact.  Then hope that you got a Leatherwood that will hold zero.  As far as the rest of the adjustments on that scope I would contact Leatherwood.  I doubt that you get a response and If you do, I doubt it will be in english.

First step is to take a really good deep breath, feel sorry you didn't contact this web sight sooner and get rid of the Leatherwood. You can play with this thing until the negative entropy of the underworld is solid and not get repeatable results. When this device was first introducted, possibly 25 years ago, it was a good start, but there is so much better out there (I'm not even going to start on the mount problems). For your later reference the fastest way to center a military auto is-(this is assuming it is mounted properly) center the cross-hairs by rotating then and counting the turns, divide by 2 and go to that, Get a really large piece of paper (human silhoutte size) and attach it to something at about 25 yds. aim at the center, fire a round, correct, move back, fire a round, correct move back etc. until the gun has settled into a cone of fire that allows you to sight in at the desired range-say a 100 yds. There are other ways, almost none of which work for AK-47's-particulary if they have folding stocks.

Go to http://www.hiluxoptics.com they have a section with PDF files of manuals for most, if not all of their current offerings.
