    Yep. That's best for me. I have to keep things simple.

    For further clarification-

    The RDS are sighted in for 50 yards.

    The MATEC and KAC BUIS are set at 25 and sighted in for that

    50yd zero for me on all my SBRs. This allows center mass hits with no adjustment out past 200yds or so, depending upon the load you are using.

    Precision scoped rifles get zeroed with consideration given to expected engagement distances.

    55gr out of a 10.5” drops 3.5” at 200y with a 100y zero. That’s certainly still “center mass”.

    The benefit with a 100y zero is that you always hold over, never under. This is important when people are shooting at you and a range finder isn’t a smart thing to be looking through.

    50y zeroes are only useful with irons.

    I love the 100 for that reason, but it’s easier to get a better zero at 50. Plus my Razor is designed for the 50 and I don’t want to have multiple zeros.

    Is there a catch to "Z" versus other click setting on those 2 depending on barrel length when zeroing at 25 meters(or yards?)?

    50 or 100 yards, just pick your favorite. In either case if you miss someone in your house, well your zero is not your problem. I run mine at 100 yards, all guns all optics.

    I zero my 11.5", 14.5" and 16" carbines with Aimpoints and iron sights at 50 yards. My AR15A4 (carry handle/iron sighted plinker) and Mk12ish build (4-12x40mm scope) are zeroed at 100 yards.

    The flattest trajectory out to 200, I'll start thinking from there.
