It occurred to me earlier this week that simply zeroing the CQT on regular target might not be the optimum way to accurately sight in a rifle equipped with one. The dot is 3MOA on 3X, so it covers 1.5” at 50 yards (or 3” at 100 yards if you zero at that range). It is most likely a good idea to ensure that your point of impact is the center of the dot. So I created these targets to help to that end
If you print to actual size (72 pixel/inch) the center dot should come out at 1.5” across.
For this one simply cover the dot with your dot and adjust so impacts are center of the circle:
Fill the center dot with your dot/bracket it with the outer ring
Choose which target works best for your eyes and lighting conditions.
I went out and tried this with a friend this morning, and his point of impact was actually on the outside top edge of the reticle.
Accurately zeroing the CQT to the center will definitely help with gauging accurate holdover on targets at further distances.
