Usually (often?) one has two zeros; A near zero and a far zero. The bullet will rise after the near zero and drop after the far zero.

Edit: Actually this is wrong. The bullet will start to drop halfway to the second zero.

Take the easy way out and get a BSA Sweet 22 scope. It compensates for the various ranges with a programmed turret. It comes with 3 turrets for different bullet weights. This link might help.
