It's the whole "click" thing you turn. They are normally 1/4 moa which is 1 click for 1/4" at 100 yards, so 4 clicks for one inch.

 

I assume you are shooting nearer than that, so say at 25 yards, you would need to adjust it by 16 clicks for one inch.

before you start trying to sight it in ft make sure your mounts are seated properly and the spacing/gaps around the scope clamp are all balanced/the same!

The adjuster on top is for elevation and the one on the right is for windage (l-r)

 

Get the elevation right first then start tinkering with the windage.
