    on the scopes i have seen they usually start out a 20 on the main then plus 10 from there down leave the dial a range on zero at least that would be a good starting point i would think

    if you go to the scope forum and look at the one for the barnett 4x32 that should give you the # you want

    do you have the larger gap between the 2nd anf 3rd crosshair in the scope.?
    also do you have the instructions for the scope. if so could you scan them and send me
    a copy. i tried to copy horton 3 times with no response.

    yes i do have a gap between my 2nd and 3rd. i jope this will help.

    Mounting Instructions:
    With 7/8" Weaver style base (SS099) mounted to the bow's
    sight bridge, mount the scope rings (SS200) to the top of 7/8"
    Weaver base. Make certain the two alignment keys have
    aligned with, and dropped into the cross cut grooves in the
    7/8" base. Tighten with hex wrench provided. DO NOT OVER
    TIGHTEN. Remove the ring caps by removing the (2) screws
    in each cap. Place scope onto the ring base, and replace cap.
    Tighten the screws to lightly hold the scope. Insure the scope's
    crossbars are horizontal. This can be checked by comparing
    the crossbars to the limbs. Insure you can see completely
    though the scope while looking through it in a natural, relaxed
    shooting stance. Once scope is positioned, tighten the ring
    cap screws.
    Battery Information:
    Red Dot sights are powered by a 3-Volt lithium battery, type
    2032. To install the battery: 1) Unscrew the battery compartment cover. 2) Insert the battery with the positive(+)
    side up. 3) Replace the cover.
    If the illuminated reticules dim, or do not light at all,
    replace the battery.

    Sighting In:
    To ease, and allow sighting in process to move along
    quickly, use a shooting bench, with rest, and consistent
    trigger pull when shooting. Be sure bench, and
    rest do not interfere with the string travel, or cable
    movement. Also, remember to keep your thumb and
    fingers of your forward hand below the travel path of
    the string and cables when shooting. To sight in the
    scope: 1) Remove the elevation and windage caps from
    the optics. Pre-set windage and elevation adjustments
    to their center range of movement. At a distance of 10
    yards, utilizing the top scope crosshair, shoot one
    arrow at the target center. Do not shoot again until
    adjustment is made. Your crossbow's accuracy has
    the potential to damage the first arrow if another shot
    was taken at this time. 2) Adjust the point of impact
    (POI) accordingly using the internal windage and
    elevation adjustments of the scope (10 clicks = y.," of
    movement). Repeat until the POI is approximately 1"
    high, and perfectly centered. 3) Move to a distance of
    20 yards and repeat, continuing to aim with the top
    crosshair in the scope. Make any minute adjustment
    to bring the POI "dead center" in the bull's-eye (at 20
    yards, 5 clicks = y.," of movement). 4) Confirm the
    distance that the lower crosshairs will represent.
    Replace the windage, and elevation caps. Generally,
    each crosshair will provide 8 to 10 yards of trajectory
    depending on the model of crossbow you are using.
    Remember, arrow selection, arrow weight, point weight
    and style, fletching length and style, are all factors that
    will influence trajectory.

    Scope was designed to be zeroed at 20 and as earlier stated. About 8-10 yards from there on out.

    Results will vary with crossbow and arrow/broadhead combo.
