Re: So how should i go about getting on paper with my new nightforce?
As mentioned, you really don't have alot of choice, unless you're planning on shimming the base or have adjustable scope mounts. Zero at 100 will give you X amount of vertical to play with, but you wont know for sure exactly how much untill you get er done.
I boresight with a Leupold magnetic sighter, then shoot 1 shot at 50 yds.
I then move the scope reticle (while holding the rifle very still) to intersect the bullet hole and move out to 100 yds.
Simply shoot a 3 shot group (adjust the parallax first and let the barrel cool between each shot) and move the reticle accordingly to center of the group . Shoot another group to confirm zero and then lock in the zero stop. Now you can dial up and see how much vertical you've got left to play with internally. This is also a good time to check the actual vs advertised click increments, and test the perpendicularity of your reticle/adjustments relative to gravity or a plumb line.
Hopefully answers your question.?
