What is the proper room/forum to ask about Zeroing in my AR?

You are in the appropriate forum.

What are the specifics of your rifle?

I use the "Improved Battlesight Zero":

My issue is that I never zeroed a AR-15 before.

All the directions state to turn down the elevation to 8/3 or 300 meters.

The only markings on my elevation is 6/3 and a bunch of click lines.

I need specific directions for zeroing in my AR-15 A3

I was informed that once it is zeroed in. one click up will be 200 meters, 2 clicks will be 100 meters....

I am not sure exactly, but perhaps someone could educate me.


Thanks

8/3 is for fixed carry handles, 6/3 for detachable carry handles.

Just go to the link I provided above and check out the various zeroing methods. Choose the one that best suits you and follow the directions.

I did the Improved Battlesight Zero way before I ever had a home computer or internet. I figured it out from looking at ballistics tables.

I had difficulty zeroing at 25 meters. I could do it, but then I was way high in the 150-200 yd range.

IBZ works!

Last weekend I zeroed my 16" Clone using the BZO described on that Maryland link. Its as easy as pie. Just make sure you have the 1/16" Allen wrench.

Just remember its a "Battle Zero" and not a Competitive Shooter Target Zero.
