RE: Resetting zero
If my rifle is zeroed at 1,000 yards, and I dial in the necessary
clicks to get the crosshair "on" at 300 yards, and THEN I want to dial
in clicks to get the crosshair zeroed at 600 yards, do I use the number
of clicks to get to 600 based on a 1,000 yard zero, or 300 yard zero? I
thought if I backed off from a 1,000 yard zero the required number of clicks
to get to 300, that I would just backtrack (go back up) the required number
of clicks based on the 1,000 yard trajectory chart to get a 600 yard zero.
However, if I must add the number of clicks based on a 300 yard zero, the
number of clicks it takes to get a 600 zero is much higher than if I was
working from the 1,000 yard zero. I thought I had this stuff all figured
out, because when I clicked down the required number of clicks to go from
1,000 to 100, it was right on. THEN, when I clicked in the required number
of clicks to get from 100 to 300 based on my 1000 yard zero THAT elevation
change was right on. But I am not so sure about going from 300 to 600.
Anybody else confused?
