Ooops, you are, of course, correct. And that is what I meant to type. No excuses. I appreciate your responses, as well as the others, you have all probably forgotten more about long range shooting than I will ever know.

Hell, I am no expert. I figured it was a goof, but IndianaBoy didn't comment on it, so I figured I'd point it out. He's more of an actual expert; it just squeaked by him too.

That was a good catch. I missed that detail.

What does everyone think of the 50/200 yard zero?


Picking a zero is a math game. You hear people debate 50/200, 100/300, 36/???? And so on constantly. I’m not hot nor cold about it. Look at the ballistics and figure how it best serves you. 50/200 allows the same chest point of aim effectively out to an average of 225 or so. Once you pick one, know and understand your holds. Very easy.

People seem to endlessly debate the virtues of various zeros and truthfully it doesn’t matter if you commit to knowing your zero and holds based on your rifle. The 50/200 is probably the most used by LE.


I think that's what most people get caught up with.
To me they are large target sights, as in A zone hits.
And most 5.56 trajectory zero's fall into the A zone out to 200 yards or so.

I am nowhere good enough to shoot bottle caps at various distances with iron sights so a 50 yard zero works for me, convenient and easy.
On mine they are just backup sights, I zeroed them but that's about it.
For me 100 yards with irons is a stretch as it is.

The only iron sights that I know of can be mechanically zeroed before range time are the non removeable iron sights on the full sized AR-15\M-16 rifle. I have had good results with removeable carry handles, but even those are subject to how hard they're torqued down. Everything else is subject to tolerance stacking or other issues.

When installing iron sights on a AR15 is this something that is important to do? Or is it enough to install the sight(s) and then boresight it/them before going to the range?
