Need help sighting in my Ar-15
 
I wanna zero in with my iron sights but from what distance should i do this

This was discussed in a thread recently, I'll try to find it.

The concensus was if you sight in with a zero 50 yards the bullet is still rising and will return to near zero at 200 yards.

Bullets rising:confused: Really? Bullets follow a path above and below the line of sight.:) Damn that 8th Grd. science class was tough.:rolleyes:
