    I set my 22mag 1" high at 100 yards. Depending on the ammo you use, you should be then zeroed at 120-130yards and 3-4" low at 150 yards.

    120 - 130 yards is the realistic maximum range of a 22mag. That said, the 30 and 32gr ballistic tip type ammo has made the wmr a much more useful round than it was with 40gr HP ammo.

    I zero mine for 90 yards. I found if I zeroed over that the rise at say 50 yards would mean i miss a rabbit's head

    I like to zero mine at 125 yards. I hold low at 75 and just a touch over at 150. This guy describes it well in this article.~Muir
