What's Your Zero
 
At what range do you zero your AR and why?

Quentin 05-17-2012 07:49 PM

50/200 yards because it's the flatest trajectory from 0 to about 230 yards.

50 yard your on my 5.56/.223 ars. For center of mass shooting to 0 to 300 yard shooting.

100 yards for anything precision......

100yards on the acog or will be. Not sure what im going to do with buis prolly 300yd. In the past ive always used 100yards but that was in texas in scrub brush where a 75-100 was pretty much it.

50/200 on 1 of them, 100 yrd zero on my scoped AR, 50 yrds on the SBR but I have no idea how much drop it will have at 100 yards since it is such a short barrel I need to do a Chronograph check on it and see where its at . and a 200 zero .223 on my bolt gun

Tough call on the sbr.....I think i saw a ballistics chart for various barrel lengths for m193 and m855 somewhere.....

found a chart from sadefencejournal.com for m855....

ShagNasty1001 05-17-2012 10:01 PM

100 since the scope is bullet compensated from 100-600

50 Yards is excellent for a tactical weapon. For precision varmint/predator rifles 100 yards is preferred due to the fact that most ballistics charts are based on a 100 yard zero data. Along with the wind charts for the 5.56 are also based on 100 yard zero data.

dont want to hijack your thread but i figured why make another one on this topic.


im going to be getting 2 new scopes shortly, a nikon p223, and a leopuld vxr.
theses 2 scopes will be getting placed on my wifes, and my AR's. i have the irons set at the mentioned 50/200 zero. i know i need to set my scope the p223 at 100 yards for the BDC to be close to effective. whats going to be a good zero for hers? so far she shoots out to 50 yards. im sure with the scope she will at least attempt 100yards. perhaps if shes brave i can get her to shoot 200. but that will only be once in awhile. so mostly it will need to cover 50 to 100yards
