What is the crossbow? I am using a Parker redhot scope illuminated version. It is awesome has 4 circles that can be lit up red or green or leave off and just use the circles unlit. It was pricey 119.00'but well worth it. They are made by hawke and repackaged by Parker redhot. Goodluck Mike

You do know that you need to site it in. There are little adjustment wheels under the caps on the sides of the red dot scope, as with most scopes.
It took me about an hour to site mine in .
Shoot three shots, turn the dials/wheels for MOA, then shoot three more, etc.
I can get a 4-6 inch target area up to 40 yards now.
Check it out.
