Re: Zeroing a 17HMR..
I use the 17HMR mainly for squirrels back in IL. Since the shots were fairly close, my zero was at 50 yds. For the occasional 100 yd shot I held about 1/4" above their head. My rifle likes the 20 gr CCI over the Hornady. At 50 yds you can cover my 5-10 shot groups with your pinky nail. The 1 lb trigger helps
. The damage they create is awesome!
