    I noticed my Bushnell scopes/red dot and EOTECH hollographic adjustments up/down Left/Right move the Point of Impact. I have 3 other cheap ones, but I zeroed a little while ago.

    Are all the US scopes and red dots adjustments move the Point of Impact (and not the point of aim?)

    The Russian scopes, like the ones on the ROMAK-3, do they move the Point of Impact or the point of aim?

    Thank you

    Every scope that I've had moves the point of impact, which I think makes sense. If you just shot low and to the left, it makes sense to move the dials up and to the right - where you want the shots to go. The only hitch is if you manually boresight, with the gun in a rest, looking down the barrel, aligning it with a point, and adjusting the scope. Then you're adjusting the point of aim, which would be opposite.

    Heck, even iron sight adjustments always move the POI.

    That can be adjusted to change the POA too I guess, if you want to look at it that way.

    (Center hold vs 6 o-clock hold.)

    I have never ever heard of any sight that changed the POA, unless as above, you change the POI with the sight to change your POA.
