I thought I read this somewhere but can not locate it. At what distance do you guys zero your AR equiped with holagraphic sites and why? This would be used for home protection so 100yds is kind of long, right?

I asked this question to SWAT team members from my dept. They told me that the entry team members zero at 25yds for CQB type use. The snipers zero at 50yds. This info is on M4's with aimpoint sights.

My EOTech is zeroed at 50 Yards per the instruction manual. You might want to post this in the Optics Section next time.

Once I zeroed my iron sights, I simply adjusted the dot so that it sits right on top of my front sight post while cowitnessing through the rear peep. Now I can flip my rear BUIS down and I'm on target. BTW, I zeroed on a 25 meter M4 carbine military zeroing target.

Everyone knows, it's not HOLAgraphic sights.

It's HOMOgraphic!

SHEEEEESH!

this distinguishes them from HETEROgraphic sights.

In all cases, 50 yards works for me.

50yds.

Within a couple inches of POA out to 200-220yds(if you zero at 50, you will also be zeroed at 200). Only a couple inches low at 300.

If you zero at 25, you'll be zeroed at some distance over 300yds too, IIRC.
