    I don't have access to a range longer than 100 yards. Can someone tell me what the corresponding long range zero would be for Hornady TAP Practice 75 gr. zeroed at 50 yards from a 16" barrel?

    also, can someone tell me why a 100 yard zero is popular with some SME's?

    Molon,

    The quality of your work never ceases to amaze me.

    Do you perchance do technical writing for a living?

    You should write a book and get Stickman to do your photography.

    The tapered flat sided post is Colt's M4 front sight post... and my favorite for carbean shooting. I read somewhere that it was to allow a better visual on your target.

    Excellent post; very informative and detailed. My head is spinning from all the choices I need make in setting up my middies.

    Well done...

    I didn't want this thread to get too complicated, so I just used the ubiquitous M193 and M855 for examples. I'll post another thread with reams of 75 grain data.
