When I first started shooting the crossbow, every little tip from an experienced shooter meant a whole to me, especially when it comes to accuracy. I’ve tried a ton of tricks to improve my crossbow scope accuracy. To be honest, some them were horrible and made it worse but a few of them did wonders in the beginning.
Sighting In Your Crossbow
We would expect that our brand new scope is sighted in after we buy, but that may not always be the case and you would need to do it yourself. After placing your target at a safe place, go to a 10 yards distance and take a shot or few.
Your shots should be hitting about 1 inch above the center. In case your shots are off, you will need to adjust the dials. The top dial will move your aim up or down, while the side one will move it left or right. When you get several shots where you want them, you are ready to go.
Use Variable Scope
Crossbow scopes can be either a fixed power scope or variable power scope. Variable power scopes give you more options when it comes to accuracy at longer ranges.
They are multi-reticle scopes that allow you to adjust the magnification and hit more accurately at different ranges. They adjusting to the speed of your crossbow. A properly adjusted variable scope will significantly improve your ability to hit more accurately and group shots closer together.
That was it, for now, I’m confident that you will know a bit better how to shoot accurately. Always look to gain knowledge from skilled and experienced shooters as they have a lot of things to share and will be eager to help a beginner.
