    Need advice zeroing ar15

    Can someone offer some advice. I want to zero my Bushmaster A2 at 50 yards with iron sights. What setting should I set rear sight to in order to get the best zero. I won't be shooting past 100-200 yards but also want it for close-up work if needed. Any advice? Thanks!

    This is a target with the instructions on zeroing the weapon system. Hope it helps.

    If you hit low left, you follow the clicks shown one per square. Same low right, or high right or left.

    No, no, no.... Here's what you need..... I couldn't help myself. It's already been covered.

    Keep in mind that zeroing at 50 yards will also be zeroed at roughly 220 yards, give or take depending on ammo. It's most often referred to as a 50/200 and you want to be sure to fine tune it at 200 when possible. In reality, it's more like a 50yard/200meter zero.

    At 100 yards, you'll be roughly 1.5" high and roughly 8" low at 300. For zeroing at 50 yards, you'll want your elevation at 200 yards and you'll want to use the smaller aperture. The m4carbine links will be good reading for you.
