Re: How do you choose the range you zero at?
I take one shot at 100yrds measure and then move the turret for perfect windage as close to perfect vertical as I can then fire one more, if the windage is perfect and the elevation is high but under a couple inches I leave it and enter it into my ballistics program then verify. I do this all from my hunting position with hunting gear.
I used to try to sight in at a calculated high so I could shot to a certain distance without messing with stuff but I've done better worrying about getting windage spot on then leaving elevation alone as long as it's in a range. Using two spaced out shots to sight in gives me a good cold bore zero with no waste of time or ammo getting things perfect and the ballistics match much closer than any other way I've tried.
But I do not group shoot at 100yrd very well at all so for me this works best.
