Guys, I'm about to be fucking done. I spent $70 on a shitty air rifle and scope to get in some cheap shooting practice in my back yard and the scope absolutely refuses to zero. There's a few problems I could have, but I'm not sure which one needs fixing.

I have a daisy pump master 880 and the scope it comes with is garbage and never zeroed and looks like your. Your better off buying a decent one like this.
>shitty $70 off brand air rifle
Mate, that's definitely too far out for something like that for starters, not to mention that scope probably wouldn't stay zeroed for any rifle. Try shooting closer up with irons until you want to splash out for something a bit better with more lower and you need to get a fairly decent scope as regular rifle scopes get beat up aa lot from the weird recoil an air rifle has

Yes the scope is crap, but it should be adequate for your purposes if used right.
Your "700 FPS" air rifle probably shoots closer to 500 FPS with lead pellets, the manufacturers use aluminum/pot metal pellets to get inflated muzzle velocities. This results in a tremendous vulnerability to wind drift at any range.
It is possible that your pellets are shitty and that is the problem, but your observation that they are consistently going to the left indicates it is probably due to wind drift.
Try shooting closer to 10 yards for zeroing, then work your way out from there.
If the irons are actually off to one side and it's not just due to wind drift or whatever, file one side of the notch in the rear sight out until it shoots straight.
