Default .22LR zero?



Advertise Here

Looking to zero in my old H&R Lynx 800 for small game. Currently running a cheaply Tasco 3-7x scope as well as back up irons. I believe itís a 22in bbl.

Anybody know of a ballistics calculator to dope some zeros as well as calculate some max point blank range?

I have zeroed at 35 yds for a long time. That gets the bullet up to the bullet path up to the line of sight quicker. Most of the rabbit heads I shoot are within 50 yds. Years of shooting at rocks at unknown ranges in fallowed wheat fields where dust marks your bullet strike has taught me hold overs.

Right here, 35 yards and if you can make it 32 yards, that is about perfect for out to 50 and down to 10.

Thats fantastic! Can I ask you to run the numbers for a 36gr 1280fps load at 2in height and 50yrd zero?

This is one of the better Ive come across.

Works well, as long as you feed it the right info, which may require a bit of digging sometimes on your part, but in general, its pretty simple.

Well shoot, that actually makes it work out pretty dang perfect. If you run a 50yrd zero with hot ammo (CCI minimags or the like) it will bracket a 2in target zone between the crosshairs and my second BDC mark between 0-80 yards. Not bad! Going with a 75yd zero does flatten it a little but adds some over/under under the PBR instead of just holding at the top of a 2in drop flight path.

range drop
0 -2.0
10 -1.1
20 -0.4
30 -0.0
40 0.1
50 -0.0
60 -0.4
70 -1.1
80 -2.1
90 -3.5
100 -5.2


BDC Crosshair zero 50yds
BDC mark 1 64 yds
BDC mark 2 84 yds
