    I recently bought a used leupold scope and it is really off zero. Any ideas about getting it back to a factory zero, if there is such a thing?

    Maybe I'm not reading you correctly, but scopes are meant to be adjusted, or zeroed, using the elevation and windage dial adjustment. There is no such thing as factory zero, unless you are thinking of the phrase "optically centered." If you are way off, to or nearly to the outside end the adjustment range, then you have a mount problem, not a scope problem.

      O' Dat's so simple!

      Step 1: Turn the knob in one direction until it stops.

      Step 2: Now turn the knob in the reverse direction counting the number of rotations until it stops again.

      Step 3: Divide the reverse rotations in half then rotate the nob accordingly, do it for both elevation and windage.

          If it will help any, last Leupold I "centered" had almost 10 revolutions and centered at about 4.75 revolutions, windage and elevation.
          I keep a cheapie Weaver base mounted on a 2x4 mounted to my shooting bench. New scope or old, it gets mounted, checked for parallax and centered. Just in case.
