How to zero the predator 8 4-32 x56. The rifle has been boor sighted. The groupings are at 5 o'clock. The turret won't turn anymore to raise the scope, what am I doing wrong?

Asked by: Nann
If you are running out of adjustment on there, we recommend our sister company Burris's Signature rings.

Can not find any info on the Predator 8 scope zero stop function. We cannot get down enough in scope to zero at 100yds. Looking for literature, to get a proper zero, then set zero stop.

Looking to buy this scope but specifics on the Predator 8 4-32X56 I see it’s made of plastic how durable is it. Description says nothing about being fog proof and waterproof ? What type of warranty does this scope have ?

Asked by: Mike Shows
The Plastic is just the dials for the turrets. The outer tube is made from aluminum. The specs do mention everything else. It is waterproof up to 3' of water and it is fog proof. It has our Heritage Warranty

I’m seeing a few companies in the US that list the predator 8 scopes as discontinued by the manufacturer.  Is this true?  

Asked by: jswillis79
