    point blank zero

    Does anyone else use point blank zero?.

    Where you only take engine room shots in the 4 inch kill zone, as in the bullet dosnt go above or below the line of sight by more than 2 inches or less than 2 inches, on roe,6 inch kill zone for red.
    It sets your distance limit of 230 yards, with a .243/ 100gr, but i think thats a reasonable limit anyway as the name of the game is stalking.

    I believe that most people use this method of zeroing for stalking. I for one do, but need to remember that if you change ammo you will have to re-work the trajectory!

    Thanks for the link MAT458, are you by any chance one of col. Copper's folowers?.

    I took my .375 out at the roe for the last time today as it is sold to a young man hwom i hope will have as much satisfaction as i have had during my ownership of it.

    Was a succesful stalk and i i got a nice youngish buck for our effort's.

    Hi Barry
    Indeed I do subscribe to many of Coopers concepts, including the Scout rifle. I will post some pics of my set-up soon. Will you be replacing your .375?

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    Indeed I do non of this long potting for me , after all the name of the game is deerstalking not deer killing. a 1" above point of aim gives me a high heart or lung shot or inner spine shot where it will drop instanly to shot as if polaxed also catters for any length of shot I need to take just in case I get a runner at a distance I would not normally take a shot so all angles covered.
