5.56 M855 green tip round? Does the 50 yard zero work with this or should I zero iron sights at 25 yards and Aimpoint at 100 yards? Looking for suggestions. Thanks

I use a 50 yd zero on my 5.56 sbrs with non-magnified optics.

same here. Irons are co-witnessed.

+2 50 yard zero works great for iron sights, red dots and even scopes!

Same for me, with my 10.5. The velocity isn't that much different from a 16" barrel, so a 50yd zero works great.

I am thinking to zero my Aimpoint at 100 and my buis at 50.
Figure I can cover more this way.

50 yds for my 10.5" 5.56, and 35 yds for my 11.5" 7.62x39.

50 yard zero will cover everything from 10 yards to 200 yrds with less than 3" drop.

Yup.

I zero at 50 and I'm hitting plates at 200

That seems like it would get really confusing really fast. Not that there would be much difference between the two at closer ranges but having to think about which sight picture to use seems unnecessary.

I will try both at 50 should I set my rear KAC on the 200 mark the zero mark is closer to the 3?

If you sight in at 50, it should be within 3" out to 200 yds or so. These are not precision rifles. If you set it and leave it at 200 when sighting in at 50 yous should be good to go. It is not going to have effective velocities at 300 yds, so I would just sight it in at 200, and leave it there.

Another 50yd'r here. I do that will all my non magnified ARs

Couldn't agree more I think having a different sight in for optics and irons is a bad idea. Should you ever need to use em KISS is the way to go. And frnakly it's not for bullseye matches, your talking "combat" effeictive ie, round inside an 8x10" box count. I keep a 50 yd zero on both for my AR's

+1 on 50yd zero. 50 and 200yd zero are nearly the same. Perfect ranges for AR pistol anyway.
