    Can anyone offer some advice regarding zeroing of my scope now that I have added a 30mm AJP rail?

    I have attached a graph of my dial settings vs distance.
    The red line is without the AJP rail. I had a zero set at 25 yards.

    The blue/black line are the readings from my experiment yesterday. I have a zero at 20 yards and at 40 yards. Looking at the graph, should I set the zero at about 31 yards?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi - Something is not right there if your vertical scale is in MOA or are they 1/4MOA clicks??. Top of flight ought to be around 30 and a good distance to set 0 since it is fairly insensitive to it being 32 or 28 yds (of course you believe everyone's zero ranges at comps, why wouldn't you hahaha). You should then find (approximately!) that 40 is 1MOA, 45 is about 2, 50 is around 3 and 55 is 4.5 or 5 MOA for most pellets/setups.

    Your graph shows 10yds following the correct trend i.e. more turret clicks for close targets after raising the scope rail but 45-plus should be flatter not steeper.

    You didn't run out of air did you? :)

    All the best
    Neil

    Hi Neil, 40 yards onwards was just me guessing the shape of the curve, so please ignore that bit.
