    Suppose it depends what you're shooting buddy .. mines is inch high at 100 yrds for roe stalking.

    I have mine sighted in 1 1/2" high at 100 yards .

    Dead on at 50m. Will give you about an inch high at 100 and back on at 150. Perfect for both roe and night time foxes.

    I zero at the shorter range because it's less affected by wind (treble can be pushed a long way off by even quite light wind at longer range).

    I think all the above are common approaches to the process and give a good MPBR. In absolute terms though, you should zero at the range at which you shoot most commonly, whatever that may be.

    Depends on your type of shooting, if you tend to point and shoot, go for the 1" high at 100 yards, or if you have a capable scope and dial in shots then dead on at 100 yards and adjust if necessary

    You can pop down to Kynamco and set zero point perfect at any distance upto 100m ; no heat, no sun, no wind, magic

    Ignoring, the usual rubbish, and assuming normal 222 velocity of 3100-3200FPS with a 50gr bullet, 1" high at 100 yards will leave you 1" low at 200 and that is perfect for 99.something% of what you will ever do with a 222.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......
