You want to adjust your hop up first. After you have that set then adjust your scope to match your hop up. If you are unsure how to adjust your scope, search it on youtube...I think even Novritch has a short video on how to do this process. Any other questions feel free to ask.

I believe that this is the video Pew pew is talking about. Also, start at short ranges (30 yards) and slowly work your way higher. Find a distance that you engage the most at and stop there. As long as the BB flies in the vertical line of the crosshairs you can easily compensate using mildots (or just reference if you don't have any) for shorter and longer ranges.

1. Remove the scope from your gun
2. Adjust your hopup using the bbs you will be using on the field
obtain the flattest trajectory by adjusting your hop up or down. Make sure it shoots straight as an arrow. If the bb flies right or left you need to work on tuning your hopup arm and shim it or you could be tilting the gun.
3. Once you have attained shooting straight and a flat trajectory of the bb, put the scope back on your gun and make sure the reticle is level. Level the gun, level the scope. a non-leveled scope will result in a tilted gun and cause bbs to fly right or left, commonly they will fly right because people are typically right handed and will tilt the top of the stock left into their shoulder pockets. a leveled reticle will help to recognize that you aren't shouldering the gun properly.
4. Set up a target to the distance you think you will be shooting (your max EFFECTIVE distance is best. This is determined by shooting groupings to see how consistent your gun is at various ranges). 25 yards (75 ft) is a good starting point.
5. Zero your scope ( I use a bore sight to begin getting on the paper), google it.
6. Rinse and repeat step 4 and 5 until you reach your max effective distance with consistent groupings of 6-8 inches.

Excellent!

One additional tip. If using a bore sighter (laser), remove any flash hiders, suppressors, or anything else that could knock the alignment of the laser off course. The bore sighter works best when it is inserted into the actual inner barrel. A bore sighter can be calibrated and there are screws to do so. If in doubt, insert the bore sighter into an old barrel (put the old barrel in a vise on a bench) and rotate it inside the barrel 90 degrees, if the dot on the wall at any given distance moves, it needs to be recentered. Adjust the screws, keep rotating until no matter where you rotate it to, the dot doesn't move. Now you're centered.
