    NVG riser zero?

    Iím not new to shooting, but ARís are not 2nd nature to me.

    Iíve had an AR and 9mm PCC for a few years now. Not much action due to the shortage. I have recently dove into the high rise optic world. Not for NVG, but for body ergonomics. Keeping the head more upright (like pistol shooting) just seems logical. AnywayÖ.

    Im wondering who has experience/insight on a good zero. Im not looking to engage threats past 100y. The role will be HD and immediate threats.

    I understand hold-over and height over bore. Iím just wondering what yíallís insight on this topic.

    Iím curious what others will say. My PCC is currently zeroed at 25y and Iíve done both 20 and 50 before. I think it depends on the furthest shot and the size of the target.

    Iím using a NV height mount now too and there is a a bit more offset at close range. It is more comfortable to shoot.

    Your answer is right in your post. What allows you to perform most effectively.

    As for zero, I prefer the repeats like the 50/200 meter zero or 36/300 yards zero.

    https://www.pewpewtactical.com/best-...tlesight-zero/

    From there you can commit offsets like 25m, 100m and 25 yards, 100 yards to memory and adjust accordingly at those ranges.

    My go-to carbine has a 1.93" LPVO mount, I have a 2.02" G mount I haven't tried yet due to lack of optic. My next Aimpoint Micro mount will the Unity Tactical 2.26" FAST. So yeah I like tall mounts, but my SPR has 1.57" which is better for shooting prone or off the bench.

    I think as optics progress, there will be programmable dots that compensate for you. Example: 200-100-25-10.

    Optics directly tied to the bore that only they can see.

    Of course that the future. Iím just going to book some time on a range to experiment

    I like to keep my firearms and optics as "mechanical" as possible.
