There are a few steps that need to be followed in order to sight in a scope on a Nikon P-223. The first step is to make sure that the rifle is properly zeroed. This can be done by using a laser rangefinder or by shooting at a target and measuring the distance to the target using a ruler. Once the rifle is zeroed, the scope can be set to the desired magnification.
The next step is to adjust the scope’s focus. This can be done by turning the focus knob on the side of the scope. Once the scope is adjusted to the correct focus, it can be zeroed again.
The final step is to sight in the scope. This can be

Sighting in your Nikon P
Nikon P 223 scopes are made for close quarter shooting, so you will want to get close to the target to sight in the scope. The closer you are to the target, the better your accuracy will be.
First, try to determine the height, width and distance to the target from where you are standing. Write down these measurements so that you can refer to them later.
Next, use a set of targets that are the same height, width and distance from where you are standing as the target on your scope. Place the targets at different distances from the center of the scope so that you can get a feel for how far you have to move the scope to adjust for elevation and windage.
Once you have determined the height, width and distance to the target, you can use the information to set the elevation and windage knobs on the scope. Be sure to turn the knobs until you get the target in the center of the crosshairs. You may have to adjust the windage and elevation knobs several times to get the target in the center of the crosshairs.
When it comes to sighting in a scope, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind.
First and foremost, you’ll want to make sure that the target is in focus. This can be tricky, as most targets are round and not perfectly flat. If the target is off-center, it’ll be difficult to get a good sight-in.
If the target is round, you can use a device called a “boresight.” This is a small, precision-made object that you place in the center of the target, and then use the scope to align the crosshairs with the bore of the weapon.
Next, you’ll want to take account of the range. You’ll need to know the distance to the target in order to use the scope. For most shooters, this distance can be found on the weapon’s manufacturer’s data sheet.
Lastly, you’ll want to make sure that the scope is properly zeroed in. This means that the crosshairs are in the center of the scope’s viewing area, and the aiming point is adjusted to correspond to the distance to the target.
The tools you’ll need
- A rifle with a scope.
- A stable platform.
- A scope adjustment device.
- Some ammunition.
- A safe place to shoot.
1. For starters, you will need to determine the range of the rifle you are using. This can be done by consulting the owner’s manual or by using a calibrated range finder. If you do not have access to a calibrated range finder, you can use common sense to estimate the range. For example, if you are shooting at a target that is 50 yards away, you will need to adjust the scope for a magnification of at least 3x.
2. Next, you will need to find a stable platform. This could be anything from a shooting bench to a stable tree. It is important that the platform is stable, as you will be observing the scope in an upright position for the majority of the shooting process.
3. Next, you will need to adjust the scope to the desired magnification. For most scopes, this will be done by turning the eyepiece housing. If the scope does not have a removable eyepiece housing, you will need to use a scope adjustment device.
4. Next, you will need to find the center of the target. This can be done by using the scope’s crosshairs and estimating the center of the target.
5. Finally, you
Step Mount the scope
1. The Nikon P 223 scope comes with a sturdy mounting bracket that fits both the receiver and the barrel of the rifle. To attach the scope to the rifle, first loosen the Allen wrench that is included with the scope and remove the securing screw on the front of the mounting bracket. Slide the mounting bracket over the receiver rail and tighten the screw on the front of the bracket.
- Next, use the Allen wrench to tighten the securing screw on the rear of the mounting bracket to hold the scope in place. Be sure that the scope is aligned so that the crosshairs are centered on the target.
- Finally, reattach the Allen wrench and tighten it.
Step Check the eye relief
First, you should check the eye relief on your scope. This is the distance from the eye to the end of the scope’s lens (or eyepiece). You want as much eye relief as possible to minimize the amount of eye pressure you’re under while shooting. Most scopes have a minimum eye relief of 24 inches, though some have as much as 44 inches of eye relief.
Step Adjust the windage and elevation
The first step in sighting in a nikon p 223 scope is adjusting the windage and elevation. This is done by turning the knobs on the side of the scope. The adjustment should be made until the crosshairs of the scope are on the target. Then, turn the knobs back the original amount to preserve the initial setting.
Step Check the reticle
Nikon scopes come with a variety of reticles to choose from. One of the most common and user friendly reticles is the duplex crosshairs. This reticle has two target circles superimposed on each other. The inner circle is for your target’s center point, and the outer circle is for the target’s periphery.
To check the reticle:
1. Remove the scope from the rifle.
- Go to 100 yards and place a target in the center of the open crosshairs.
- Aim the rifle at the target and center the reticle in the center of the open crosshairs.
- Point the rifle downrange and adjust the scope until the reticle is on the top center of the target.
- Close the scope.
Now you are ready to sight in the scope.
1. Place the rifle in firing position.
- Aim the rifle at the target and adjust the sights until the reticle is on the top center of the target.
- Close the scope.
- Fire one round at the target.
- Check the groupings at the target and make any necessary adjustments to the sight alignment.
- Fire another round at the target and check the groupings.
- Make any necessary adjustments to the sight alignment and fire another round.
Step Test fire the rifle
First, make sure the rifle is unloaded and placed on a stable platform. Next, sight in the scope by adjusting the elevation and windage knobs until the crosshair is in the center of the rear sight post. Next, test fire the rifle at a range of 100 yards to ensure it is functioning properly. Keep in mind that the crosshair may move slightly up or down after each shot, so adjust the elevation and windage knobs accordingly. Once the rifle is sighted in, continue shooting at different distances until you are confident the scope is accurate.
If you’re looking to buy a new rifle or handgun, a quality scope is a must-have accessory. But how do you find the right one for your specific firearm and shooting needs?
One way to get started is to sight in the scope yourself. This process involves lining up the scope’s crosshairs with the center of the target and shooting several rounds to get a feel for how the scope performs. Once you have a good idea of the scope’s performance, you can take it to a gunsmith to have it adjusted.
