Zero - The range at which the point
of aim and the point of impact are one
and the same.
Verb: To sight in a rifle/scope/load combination so that the bulletís point of impact coincides with the point of aim at a preselected distance. Called this because at that distance, zero hold-over is required when aiming. See Bullet drop, Hold-over, Line of sight, Trajectory.
