Night force with 0 stop

Does any one run two zero's with there zero stop scopes. I zero my scope at 100 then set the zero stop. then set my 0 line on the turret as my 500 yard O. That way i have two o's one with the o stop and one with the turret. Does this make sence?????

Re: Night force with 0 stop

If I am following you correctly. All the way down is 100 yard zero. Then the actual "0" diget on the turret you have set at 500 yards, correct? What does this gain you? And wouldn't that get confusing for a 700 yards shot when your program or chart said to dial up , like 10.5 moa? As now you could not start at zero and count up.

That's right what that does for me is most of my shots r from 500 n on out on our ranch. but when i need a 100 all i have to do is turn it till it stops and i'm good . For as the program goes i have my programs sight in zero distance set at 500 so it works the same as if it was set at a 100. What it does for me is a lot less turning to get me where i need to be most of the time its just quicker.

I see what you are doing, but the difference between a 400 yard shot and a 500 yard shot can be 2.5 to3 moa. That is about 10" or so, what do you do for a 40o yard shot?

Re: Night force with 0 stop

my program shows my MOA drop both +/- so all i have to is look at my drop and turn it 2MOA's backwards. its really ease instead of having to turn 8.250 for a 400 i just turn 2 moa. 95% of my shots r really close to if not over 500+/-. so this way I'm close to the right MOA and still have a 100 Zero. plus any thing under 500 even 2 moas is only 10" i can just hold off if need be. Just Some thing i tried and like how i work.

I just wish there where more scopes with a zero stop out there

Well it sounds like you have your system figured out and it works for you. Let us know how it does in your future hunts.
