Guys - I have an old Busushnell Banner 6x-18 scope. I believe it is about 25 years old. Here is my problem. When trying to sight in my 223 using this scope I noticed I need to make adjustments. I took off the windage and elevation caps and there is the adjustment dials but there is no direction arrow to guide me whether I am adjusting left or right or up and down. Is there any "rule of thumb" which tells me which way to go?

Tks

I've seen scopes marked one way and actually go the other...the only sure way is to use a bore sighter and physically watch it move as you turn it, or to "fire for effect."

or go out, fire a shot, crank it ten clicks in one direction, fire again and check the hit. I make a habit out of "boxing" all my scopes at 50 yards before I commit to using that scope permanently. every scope I have will make a square with 2 hits on bull. Just sayin. it costs you 5 bullets and will ensure your scope is operating properly, AND it shows you which way the scope moves on each click.
