I've got a truglo 4x32 cross bow scope that I just mounted on my barnett ghost 360. Left to right it's dead on but my shots are consistently high at 20 yards. I've maxed out my crosshairs and still high. Any ideas how to get my point of impact to drop a couple inches?

Thanks!

You need to raise the objective by shimming either under the front scope base or between the scope and the front ring. A piece cut from a soda can works well.

Okay. I think I’ll try that. Would lower profile scope rings help too?

Sounds to me that if it's hitting high then you'd need to shim under the back part of the scope?!?

Nope the front ring needs shimming. I recently had the same problem and put Burris rings on with a +10 in the front and a -10 in the back to get leveled out correctly.

Yeah, I did do the soda can strip trick. And it did bring my shot down. Took some trial and error. Problem is I'm solely relying on that because the elevation does not adjust on the scope now. I think I stripped it when I was trying to max out the height of the crosshairs with a pair of pliers.

Have you done that before? I just tried it and it did work. Took a little trial and error but I was shooting lower and more where I needed to be. I was just curious if you tried it and did the aluminum move around at all over time that would cause it to be off again? I had it tightened down pretty good.

Some crossbows have a jack screw underneath the scope mounting plate just for this purpose.The jack screw allows one to adjust the scope base in case the elevation turret runs to a stop. FOYI
If not then shim or change scope rings. You can almost move your scope forward or backward for this but most important to have right eye relief.
