    Roughly about 32 yard. Set it up so -1 mil dot =10 yards then all the rest line up nicely on my scope. Fairly flat from 13 - 35 yard (+/_ .2")

    10yds -1md
    15yds secondary zero
    20 yds +.2md
    25yds +.5md
    30yds +.5md
    35yds Primary zero
    40 yds -.5md
    45 yds -.75md

    I personally zero at 30 metres..I use a 3-9x40 MAP scope saves messing about with mil dots and it puts me right on the mark...I shoot an AA S400K in .22 (Big Boys calibre) and it does the job for me!!

    35yds, although it depends on which scope I'm using. I'm still in the experimental process. I used to zero at 25yds, but it seemed to give me problems at longer ranges. I need more range time before I can feel comfortable remembering my aim points.

    (HFT shooting not FT)

    New to this game but have found that 35yrd works well for my setup, 20 yrd is 0.5 milldot up and 50yrd is 1 mill dot down.

    40 for me as it works for my ret as well, PLUS i find it much much better than anything else . I have tried all the others and 40 or 38 is the best!

    35 yards for me, as each half dot works out 5 yards then ( easy to remember ). :D

    Myself and Kieran my son both zero at 25 yards, because we have access to a 25 yard indoor range 2 days a week, and it also works very well with the SR6 ret.:)
