I zero my flat shooters at 300 but I think a lot depends on what your intended target is and what other system you are using on your optics.....Rich

I always zero mine at 300 that way I know from 0 to 300 is covered with no issues. My .257 Weatherby is zero'd at 300, and 7mm STW is zero'd at 100...fixing to be 300 in a few weeks.

I zero the 708 @ 100yards. The first mildot gets me to 300yards, the second mildot to 425yards and the third to 525 yards. This system works a lot better for me than PBR.

Re: max point blank range or zero at 200

I zero all of my rifles at 300yds. From 0 to 350, I "play it by ear" and just hold under, dead on, or slightly over. Most bullets starting out with a muzzle velocity of 3000fps + don't drop much out to 350yds. From 350 on out I dial it in. JohnnyK.

Re: max point blank range or zero at 200

I use many ballistic and rangefinding reticles for long-range shooting, and i never sacrifice point blank range to make a reticle an intuitive system (even hundred yd. intervals). I always calculate MPBR conservatively for no more than 3/4ths anticipated tgt. size. The reticle zeros are calcd. and tested usually at the optic's (2FP) highest power.
