Wow, lol. I zero @ 200 and it helps a bit when you use the reticle like your planning. I shoot a lot and when I’m with someone who hasn’t, I’ve noticed it’s hard for them to judge holdovers and with a 200 zero and a fairly flat shooting rifle it helps a bit. If you have a spot where you can set up some random targets out to 5-600 yards you will probably see what I mean.
Would it be accurate to say the holdover crowd tends to like a 200+ zero and the dial crowd likes a 100? I know you can do either with both options but that’s what the comments suggest.If you have exposed turrets then there is not a single logical reason to zero at any range other then 100. Not one. Change my mind.
Regardless, zero only represents a place to return to after you have been using the dial for shooting at longer distances.Hi all,
I am having a 28 Nosler built and will be putting a Leupold 4-24 Vx6 on it with an Impact 23 MOA Reticle. This is the first long-range rifle I have owned. I live in Montana. I built this rifle to hunt elk and mule deer. I plan on using the reticle when I need to make a quick shot. I plan on dialing when the game presents this type of opportunity. I would likely limit my shooting to 600-700 yards until I build proficiency with the rifle. Here is what I would like advice on:
Thanks for your help.
- For hunting is it best to zero the scope in at 100? OR
- Calculate maximum point blank range and zero for that distance? OR
- Is there another way I haven't thought about?
I’ve got a zeiss v4 on my 25sst that’s a little over a year old and it’s solid as far as tracking. And I bought it as a demo from redhawk’s. Hadn’t heard anything bad on them myself and I have no complaints other than not being able to dial wind but they were upfront about that.Everything I have heard about the new Zeiss scopes, is that they won't reliably track for squat!
It would take lots of typing on your part in order for my old mind to grasp what your attempting to say.The farther the bullet travels from your muzzle the more environmental plays into the true zero of your rifle. That’s reason #1 why we zero @ 100
If I you want wind, DA, etc for a specific location etc figured into the true zero of your rifle then go ahead and zero at 200. Hell, zero at 1000yd and hold under for everything. Just don’t forget to compensate for everything else you included in your zero. Good luck
