Reading the thread about ranges to zero a .308 at got me thinking.
Most of us zero about an inch high at 100m and actually do this at 100m range.
This then gives us two points of true zero which for most calibres will be about 75-80m and again at around 150m.
So here's a thought...............
Why not just zero at the closest point of zero. I can see a good few advantages of doing this...
You will obviously need to check exactly what your chosen setup does at longer range, but once this is established, a quick first point of zero check should be all that is required. What do ya reckon?
- Less walking to check the target!
- Less influence on trajectory from environmental factors such as wind.
- A definite point of aim i.e at the centre of bull.
- Target closer and therefore easier to see with a limited power scope.
