What would be the best Zero distance for shooting FT. %-6
prefer the dialing, like Urabus mentioned above.
Tape the elevation turret closed, take a permanent marker and set up your gun for the various distances. Ofcourse accurate rangefinding goes hand in hand with this.
More detailed info available on request, example :
Using Mil-Dots and a 10 mag scope for HFT, I zero at 35 yards. This gives me 20,25 and 30, just above the cross hair, 40 yards half way to the first mil-dot below, 45 on the first dot, 50 half way to the second dot 55 yards on the second dot. Velocity 785 fps, pellets JSB / AA, 8.44 grain.
FT, I zero at 23 yards, everything dials UP from there.
Velocity 785fps, scope centre 1.8 to 2 inches above barrel centre, pellets JSB exact 8.44 grain.
