where should one aim, and where should rounds impact to get a 100 yard zero shooting at a target 50 yards away. Yes i know about the Ibsz, but thats not what i want to do. I zeroing in my loopy and the BDC works on a 100 yard zero.

Depends too much on bullet weight, velocity, etc.

You would have to figure out where the bullet would be at 50 yards to hit point of aim/point of impact at 100 (if that's where you want it to hit). To do that you need the bullet weight, ballistic coefficient, velocity, heighth of scope over the barrel, etc.

You plug all that into software like this and it will tell you how high over the point of aim you should be to get to a 100 yd zero. That's if you want to get it exact, not guesstimate, especially since you don't mention what caliber you're shooting.

Oh yes, my .25" high estimate is for a 20" AR with 55 grainers.

The General Discussion forum is like raslin'. It might look and sound like fighting, but it's really just harmless theatrics and histrionics.

In my NRA Patrol Rifle Instructor Manual, the following info is listed on a chart using 55 grn / M193 ammo.

Sight Height: 2.5 inches / Muzzle Velocity: 3250 fps / Ballistic Coefficient: .255

The following represents the point-of-impact (POI), either plus or minus in inches, from the point-of-aim (POA) using a 50 yard zero.

Range (Yards) / 50 Yard Zero (Inches)
------------------------------------------------
5 ......................... - 2.2
10 ......................... - 1.9
15 ......................... - 1.7
20 ......................... - 1.4
25 ......................... - 1.1
30 ......................... - 0.9
35 ......................... - 0.7
40 ......................... - 0.4
45 ......................... - 0.2
50 ......................... 0
55 ......................... + 0.2
60 ......................... + 0.4
65 ......................... + 0.6
70 ......................... + 0.8
75 ......................... + 0.9
80 ......................... + 1.1
85 ......................... + 1.2
90 ......................... + 1.3
95 ......................... + 1.4
100 ........................ + 1.6

What this means is that you can still zero in your sights for various distances while remaining at 50 yards. Example: You want a 100 yard zero while shooting 50 yards. On the chart, 100 yards = + 1.6 inches.

What you do is put a mark on your target 1.6 inches ABOVE the bullseye. This will be your POI. Then at 50 yards, you still aim at the center of the bullseye, and adjust your sights until your shots hit your marked POI.

* This chart applies to Iron Sights.
