[url]http://groups.msn.com/TheMarylandAR15ShootersSite/zeroingmethods.msnw[/url] lists several methods, the Santose IBZ being the best suited for most uses.

set your rear sight all the way down so it aligns up to the 8/3 mark, then the elevation knob is rotated up (clockwise) one click past the 8/3 (300-meter) mark. The elevation knob will remain in this position until the battlesight zeroing has been completed. [url]http://www.seidata.com/~adking/zero_an_m16a2_rifle.htm[/url]

CATM instructs us to zero using the M16A2 25M Zero Target at 25M. For the setting, I am instructed to set the elevation knob one click up (right) past the 300 mark--however, I am also instructed to leave it at that for distances to 300M, and not to rotate it back as the target instructs. I know that others use other zero methods, but as I suspect with FREEFALLE6, it is what we're taught. HTH, Mike

I agree with Troy - the Santose zeroing method is the way to go, IMO... My bushy sight is zero'd so that 8/3 minus 2 clicks equals 50yards/200yards... Then, minus 1 more click(8/3 minus 3 clicks) is a PERFECT 100 yard zero... This way, I have an accurate sight-in for any distance I'll ever shoot, and 8/3 minus 2 is a good "all around" battle sighting... - georgestrings
