100 for me. it may not be the right answer for everyone, but it works from my blind

100 here also. I go off mils for anything else.

I go 100 on my 308 AR as it is used for elk where close shots are the norm.

100 for mine as well.

Zeroed at 100 ... With Acog

I use a 100 yard zero for every rifle a scope. I know where it will hit between 0-100 and can adjust if I need to beyond that.

LOL, I was literally going to type the same thing. For me and my unfortunate deer, 100 yards is plenty. I sight in for "don't have to worry about trajectory." Even if I took a 150 yard shot, the bullet drop would be an inch or so. Not quite MPBR, closer in. If I shoot a deer at 40 yards the bullet is maybe an inch high.

I have mine at 200 yards which has is basically dead on at 50 yards as well.

200 yards

200. Little high at 100.
Using 8X scope.

All my rifles are sighted in at 100 yards both semi 556, 308 as well as bolt action rifles. All have scopes and use the scope reticle or hash marks or turret to adjust for longer ranges.

1.5" high at 100 yards, which is real close to the standard 50/200 zero.
Link Posted: 5/1/2015 7:21:36 PM EDT

That would be a long shot around these parts. Trees everywhere.

200 yard battle sight zero - same as my 5.56mm's and my 6.8mm. A slightly high center mass aim is a hit in the lethal area from 50 yards to 400 yards. These are not hunting rifles. I have plenty of scoped, bolt action rifles for the purpose of precision hunting accuracy.

I went for 25 yards for my iron sights and will likely do the same for the scope (when I get one). The trajectory for M80 ball or equivalent load is of course "on" at 25 and then again at 240 yards. Max rise in between is about 3.5". 50 yards is +2" (observed yesterday at the range). 100 yards is about +3". 200 yards is about +1". At 300 yards the bullet is -5" and -10 at 340 yards. As a non-long range shooter, this works for me meaning dead hold on deer size game (or zombies).

16 in carbine, 200yds

20 in NM one front sight is zeroed at 600 with the rear 5 clicks up from bottom, the other front sight is zeroed for 800 same rear setting, then go up to 900, and 1000.

100 yds for sure with .308
Link Posted: 5/1/2015 10:24:30 PM EDT
100 yards, the use mils for the ranges I shoot at here.
Link Posted: 5/1/2015 10:45:37 PM EDT
I've got mine sighted in at 100 yards too. Both the one at work and the one at home.

100 yrds. A ballistic cheat sheet does the rest..

My 10 year old son took his first deer last year with it... 10 points, 5x5 for some of you, @ 156yrds.. dropped right in its tract..

i was issued an M14 in april 64, qualified with it at camp mathews shooting from 200,300,500...we were taught to use our 200 yard dope as our battle sight dope. 200 yard dope served me well for the next 4 years, 13 clicks elevation, 2 right wind, on every M14 i was issued..strange, i seem to have a problem with the right wind thingy
