    Easy way to zero your rifle

    Print this target. Aim for the bottom of the triangle at 25 yards. Group your shots in the circle for a 100 yard zero.

    I have found this to be very useful.

    Interesting and definitely thanks. My buddy had one somewhat similar the last time I zero'd my rifle. It had a black square with a thin white X crossing through it. Below a inch or so was a small black dot about the size of a nickle maybe. Basically you aimed right at the center of the white X crossing in the black square and the POI should be in the dot below. We then went back and verified it from 50 and was dead on (didn't have a chance to verify at 200). If anybody knows where to find a printout of that target it would be much appreciated.

    That looks like a knock-off mod of the Helwink/Chudwin 25yd sight-in/100rd Zero Target:

    Is zeroing a little low at 25 yards that difficult to begin with? Wouldn't any gridded target work, just hold on the center and get your POI where you want it (count squares) based on what your absolute zero need is?

    Rob,

    That target was designed for LE personnel when zeroing their patrol rifles. While the majority of the guys I work with "Get it" during the zeroing portion of the training, theres always a few who dont at first. Every little bit of assistance helps with those few, and these targets definately help simplify the process.

    I support any method that gets people to understand that POA/POI at 25 is not an acceptable method of expedient zeroing.

    As accurate as needed, as fast as possible, as many times as it takes.

    I want to make sure I have this straight.

    Looking at the link you provided.

    I aim at the bottom of the triangle type thing from 25yds and the bullet impact is in the center of the small circle for a 100yd zero, the top of the small circle for a 50yd zero and the bottom of the triangle type thing for a 25yd zero.


    I would then go out to whatever distance zero i chose(in my case 50yd) and i should confirm my zero.
    Im pretty sure im right.
    Thanks.

    There's a Blackwater target very similar to that as well. I used to have a PDF of it. I think it looked like a reduced "E" with a small white block just below COM. You aimed COM and put the rounds in the white block and it was BZO for 100M.
