    Sorry, "W" as in "win".
    This is why I generally avoid sports references

    I'm an inter-city LEO using a 16.1" Colt 6920 as my Patrol Rifle. Most of my potential engagement distances are well within 50 yds. But some school hall ways can get almost to the 100 yd range, not to mention large parking lots of business, grocery stores, Wal Marts, ect.

    I've been using the 50/200 yd zero since we instituted the Patrol Rifle program, but lately have been giving more thought to the 100 yd zero.

    The more I thought about it, the more I felt it had merit for my needs.
    Thanks for posting this F2S. You managed to explain it in such a way that even I can understand. You've sold me on the concept.

    This is a great explanation. Thank you for taking the time to post this! I have always used the 25M zero (only way I've been trained in the service). I wish line units would take the time to consider the merits of the 100M zero.

    F2S, when I first got my AR I didn't know which zero to use. I went out to the indoor range and zeroed it to 25 yards. I read your article on your site and was impressed with the explanation. My first trip to a 100 yard range, I zeroed it to 100 yards. It has worked well in the tactical matches I've been shooting too.

    My apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere, but for your POA with a red-dot, do you prefer to use the center of the dot as your reference point, or do you use the top edge of the dot for greater precision? I suspect that it's less of an issue with the 2 MOA dot, but I'm just curious.

    Thanks for the great summary.
