    What would be a good scheme for zeroing. 50yds or a 100yds
    I am a little familiar with the near and far zero at 50 and 100 yds.
    Will like to hear preferences and reasons.
    thanks

    that depends what you ranges you intend to use it for and what sights, iron sights, scope?. with iron sights. if you zero it at 36 yards. you will be dead on at 300 as well. scope. zero for what you intend to shoot most i would suppose.

    If you want flexibility, zeroing at around 50 yards should give you the flattest trajectory, about +/- 2.5" from 0-225 yards. Otherwise zero at the distance you'll normally shoot.
