Good morning hobby shelter friends! This time we will discuss about our sport hobby. Especially, we will discuss about how to zeroing a telescope for common air rifle, all kind of air riffle. But in this article, we use our vintage pneumatic multi-pump 4.5mm Sharp Innova air rifle made in Japan. The telescope itself is Bushnell Banner 3-9x40E.
Our setup for the zeroing are listed below:
- Multi-pump pneumatic air rifle, we used 4.5mm vintage Sharp Innova made in Japan. Set on 5x pumps, around 800fps.
- Bushnell Banner 3-9x40E with rangefinder reticle. 3-9x40E means the magnification can set from 3x to 9x magnification. 40 means that the front lens / objective lens diameter is 40mm. The bigger the objective lens, the brighter and wider an image can be gathered. And for the letter E in the specs means electric reticle; the reticle have an illuminate green light and red light to make our aim is easier in low light condition.
- 4.5mm bullet/pellets. We used an RWS Superdome pellet Kal 4.5mm / Cal .177. This pellets have an average weight around 8.3 grains. This front rounded pellets have a great accuracy for this type of air rifle. You can use your own preferred bullet for your own reference.
Step by Step
- Mount your telescope on your air rifle. Use a waterpass to make sure the scope is linier horizontally.Position the eyepiece correctly. Level your cross-hair using waterpass. If you don’t have a water pass, just use the application from your smartphone. If you are using android phone, you can simply search it on playstore. Just type “waterpass” and you wil get what you want. If the mounting is lined correctly horizontal, thighten all the screw and lets go to the next step.
- Use a rifle holder to make your shots steady, and then take your aim on a middle crosshair. Take a distance about 10-20 yards from your rifle to the printable target. If your shoot placed on the right side of the middle target, turn your side-telescope-turret few clicks clockwise, and shoot again repeat until its fix on the midle balance right-left. Next is adjust your up and down knob. if the shoots place on the upper side of the target, turn your up knob clockwise to get your pellets down. Each click will change the shooting 1/4″ on 100yards. So if you want to adjust 1/4″ on 20yards, you have to turn your knob 5 clicks.
- After the grouping is good, you can double check your shoots in multiple distance, and make a calculation about it so you can make a great shots accurately in the field.
