Default Your .22 Zero

I was just interested where your Zero is on your .22 lr and your .22 magnum rifles are. Curiosity mostly. My Savage .22 lr bolt gun is zeroed at 50 yards with a Simmons 3-9-40. My Marlin .22 magnum bolt gun is also zeroed at 50 yards with a Simmons 6-20-50 scope. I was thinking about pushing the magnum out a little farther say 75 yards or so. Your ideas and input on your setups are appreciated guys. Thanks.
Doc

My zero is where the factory set it. I just walk it in from there.

My Ruger 10/22's are zeroed at 25yd. No change to 50yd....same POI. I shoot silhouette with one of them. Total of about 30 clicks will get me on at 100yds I think.

The one I hunt with is zeroed 50 yards. The one I plink with is zeroed at 100 yards. The 100 yard zero is with a Weaver KT-15 15x40mm scope on it. I zero it at 100 and set the knobs at zero and come back to fifty and see how much I have to take out to get in the bull.

Normal sight in for a 22lr is 50 yards normal sight in for a 22mag is 75 to 100 yards.

Thanks for the input guys. I think that I will push the zero on my .22 mag out to 75 yards.
