75 yard zero

#1

Post by Arizona_Overland » February 10th, 2019, 11:33 pm

Does anyone know at what shooting range I would be able to shoot a target at 75yds to zero my varmint rifle

I ask because the ranges I’ve been to only have targets at 25,50,100,200,300 etc.

Thanks in advance

Seems like 50 or 100 would work if you sight one, then test the other to know how it tracks.

Unless, you have a stand 75yds from a prairie dog mound...

100 zero is easiest. Don't try to reinvent the wheel.

Yes, the holes which are already there, but take your own base and set it at 75 if thats what you want for some reason

If you have your bullet data and velocity you could calculate where a 75yd zero would hit at 100 and sight for that.
If you are shooting at 75 it isn't going to be very different from a 100yd zero but if you are calculating a BSZ or a zero for several hundred yards out and it just happens that a 75yd zero will put you right on at whatever xxx yds, then I can see where you need to have your target at that distance.
That's my opinion... and I'm stick'in to it...
but.. I might change my mind.

Might be able to do that at Phx Rod & Gun, but not at the BA main range.

This is true. Ben Avery has their own target frames that you necessarily need to use and they mount in pockets at various distances. But I think 75 yds is one of the locations where their are pockets for target frames.

Besides the target frame rule, there are many many more rules at BA and new ones added almost daily. And some of those range officers have attitudes.

Or just get a Savage A17....
I'm not a hunter, but I can hit clays at 100 yards without trying, in a light wind, and I don't consider myself to be exceptionally skilled at long distances.
Don't use it much, but when I want to get a big head, I take it out and blast the cobwebs out...
Probably one of the more expensive suggestions here.
