    zeroing

    The 16s/17s Manual instructs the user to turn elevation drum to 3 to obtain a zero at 25m/300m...is this for both 5.56 and 7.62?

    So if you zero at 25m, it is like zeroing at 300m. See this picture below:

    I just got a 16s yesterday, after waiting 7 months for it to arrive, and i don't want to zero it at 25m/300m like the manual suggestions. Instead i want to zero it for 100 yards. Does anybody have any suggestions on how to go about doing this. I read some where that in order to accomplish this you zero at 25 yards and your point of impact should be 1.5 inches lower than your point of aim BUT this was for a AR. Any tips would be great.

    Reference the above, while it is not exact, I will do the 25m BZO and then just turn the rear sight drum all the way down. I like maintaining a 100m sight setting, and I have found that this gets me close enough for practical accuracy.

    1" low at 50 yards should be close to a 100 yard zero with a .223 and 55gn bullet or 13/4 low at 25 yards if I remember right or something like that.
