In this post we are going to be discussing how to properly zero your scope on a precision rifle. It’s easy enough once you’ve done it but this can be daunting for newer shooters. For starters, let’s talk a little about the shooting aspect of zeroing your rifle. Obviously, you need to fire at a target, and adjust the scope so that by default the bullets land where the crosshairs are pointed at a given distance. What distance should you use though? If you want my opinion, 100 yards. Always 100 yards. Most drop tables and charts use a 100 yard zero but that isn’t the best reason to use that distance.
