Re: What range should a person initially sight in at.
Using the Nightforce NP-R1 reticle, I sight in so the top hash mark is 100yds. For my 338AM, that means the crosshair is around 735yds. For my 300WSM with the top hash at 100yds, the crosshair is around 530yds. Of course the exact zero depends on the elevation and temperature.
I don't dial shots in, I use the ballistic reticle, so I sight in to take full advantage of it.
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives
