Getting a HK 91 clone with the Fed Arms reciever with picatinny rail. I'll be mounting a 6x24 Tasco Mildot scope on it. What would be a good range to zero at to take advantage of the bullet trajectory.(I.E. flattest trajectory.) And, what distance should the irons be sighted in at? I know the Santose 50 yd battlesight for the AR works well for that round. Is there something like this for the .308? Thanks.

Beekeeper, thanks for the reply.2 in high for irons as well as the scope?

I zero all my rifles except for the 22LR for 100 yards dead on. In TN the odds of needing a longer shot aren't too high.

I like a 200yd zero for the .308 and similiar trajectory cartridges. I agree a 50yd zero will put you fairly close to being on at 200.

I agree with Beekeeper and Hillbilly. I sight to zero at 200 with the 6.5x55 and the 7.62x51 / .308. That way you are about on at 50, 1 to 2 inches high at 100, on at 200, and about 2 to 4 low at 300.
