I changed my string [ not BOOS haven't got it yet] and put on a DrStirrup and dbkiller and bumper. I thought I should check scope. I was 2 inches low and 1 inch to right at 20yrds I adjusted scope. then at 60yrds up and down was perfect but right and left was about 2 or 3 inches to right. could it be wind or do I have a problem.[ this is on my 380]

Not unusual for POI to be off after string change

You might be canting your bow a little or your scope might not be perfectly level. Or like you said might be the wind.2-3 inches at 60 yards still is not to shabby.

Its the way you held your cross bow and did you wash your hands after taken a poop you could had a little build up on your supporting hand hope this helps.

Thanks for help don't understand the poop guy but for the others I was shooting off a rest so I am hoping it was the wind.

Sounds like you might have either been canting your bow a little or pulling while you shot

This is how I sight in, I try to be as close to center at 20yds up down, right and left. My next distance I sight in is at 40yds, at 40yds I think the arrows true flight path will show itself. Adjust up and down with speed ring, if an option? Right and left with scope adjustments. 20,30,40 and 50yds all tend to shoot well. 1/4" right at 20 is much more reflected at 60...
