What range to zero my .22LR?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've decided to keep my maximum range at 60 yards when using my .22lr; just why I become profeicent with it. If my maximum range is 60 yards, what zero range would afford me the flattest trajectory possible? I use a 3-9x40 scope and subsonic rounds.

 

Cheers.

I mainly shoot at around 40-60yds when lamping, when I zero my .22 at 60yds its something like 9" drop at 100yd, so depends on your most common range your shooting at..

Hi Ian,

 

My ranges are normally under 50 yards. Would a 45 yard zero give me the flat trajectory out to 60 yards?

From 20yd-60yds your going to be a max of 1/2 inch over or under using that charts figures, with a 52yd zero

As HZ says, using subs zeroed for 40 yds should give you +/- 2" from under the muzzle to 60 yrds. Lay the crosshairs dead on and s-s-qu-e-ze.

Zero for 18yds keeps you nearly flat out to 50yds...touch of holdover out to about 75 yds max, with headshots.

WELL BLOW ME SIDEWAYS! I've been shooting .22rf for twenty odd years and the above has taken me by surprise. I've run the data in Sierra I6, Exbal and quick target and an 18 yard zero gives less drop @100 yards than a 40 yard zero, by 1.3" :victory:

 

I've just fitted a new stock to my .22rf and was going out to zero the rifle, guess at what range! Top stuff Andy. :thumbs:

Please post the chart or link, that does not make sense!

 

Are you talking 18 yard First zero or True zero?

 

The bullet falls from True zero so how could it possibly fall less from 18 yards that from 40 yards??

What chart?

18 yard primary zero

40 yard zero = 10 yards / -0.73 20 yards / -0.17 30 yards/ 0.08 50 yards -0.41 100 yards -7.75

 

18 yard zero = 10 yards -0.59 20 yards 0.12 30 yards 0.51 40 yards 0.58 50 yards 0.31 100 yards -6.31.

 

Simple to understand?

You are joking...right????

 

LOOK AT THOSE FIGURES!!!

 

You are comparing a 40 yard zero to over a 50 yard zero.

 

An 18 Yard zero DOES NOT give you less drop at 100 yards than a 40 yard zero, all else being equal!
