How Far Do You Zero Your AR in 3 Gun?

33 posts in this topic

+1 on zeroing the Strike Eagle at 50 yards. I usually  go about 2 inches on top of the bullseye. The longest shot I've had in 3 gun matches is 400y and to can still hit it without any complications or crazy adjustments.

With a vortex strike eagle I follow their manual. I zero the crosshairs at 50/200 and that puts the post at the top right on at 100. I can consistently hit 1 moa with 55gr out to 200 and then past that I use 75gr out to 600. The bottom mark on the reticle is at 580 with 75gr. No trouble at all hitting 3moa steel from 300-600 with that setup.

Check your manual about your reticle. Quite a few of them that are BDC are designed to function with a specified zero. For me and the Vortex HD 1-6x it specifies a 200yd zero.

I typically zero hoser ammo at 200 yards.  But if I have a match with a lot of long distance, I will zero the first hash mark on my 1-6 razor at 300.  Rest of the hash marks line up great, and the difference at 100 with my hoser ammo is negligible.

100yd zero and I know the holdover for all close stuff and my hoser bay stages as well as my long range. A tip, I use strelok and for a long range stage I will draw my holdover/reticle on a sheet of paper with the corresponding targets and tape it to my stock with clear tape. Ive thought about doing the same thing with a quarterback armband.

200 METERS with optics (usually 75 grain bullets).  When shooting open, I zero the dot at 50.  My optics are usually calibrated to a 200m zero and I think it's a great all around zero for optics.

 

300 YARDS with irons (usually that's with 53-55 grain bullets - shooting flatter is better with irons and IPSC rifle stops at 300 meters which is the only place I'd shoot irons anymore.)
