Re: max point blank range or zero at 200

Lots of guys run elevation turrets of some sort of ballistic reticle on their scopes. I do a little of both but I also have a 257 Weatherby that will be zeroed at 300 yards for deer next fall. Still have to shoot to verify but at 12X the lower duplex of my reticle should make a handy aiming point for 500 yards and hold pretty much dead on out to 400.

Re: max point blank range or zero at 200

I like to keep the top of my trajectory to about 3 inches. In my two LR rifles, 300 RUM and 25-06, I am getting 3400 fps which allows me to zero @ 300 yds which give me just less than 3" high @ 175 yds. With this zero I can hold on top of back @ 400 or about 2-3 MOA over at 500 yds (or dial). Less than 3300 fps and I zero @ 250 yds.

Zero mine 300yrd. Bulls eye zero, that works for most of my shots, then i just compensate with turret from there out to my max distance, where i hunt that is around 800.
