7.62 would require a different zero.

Using a ballistics program input with the AR sight height and M80 ball ammo I get -1.49" low at 25 yards with a 100 yard zero.

So it would seem just group 1.5" below point of aim. No zero crossing at that close of a zero. Investing in a laser bore sight is not a bad idea as well.

Brownell’s has a laser boresighter for $40. Takes all the work out of it. Plus you can check your sights at any time to make sure they are perfect. Works for high scope, low scope or open sights.

Even better yet sight it in at 1.25 low at 25 that will put you about 1.5 high at a 100 real close to on at 200.

With all due respect, a public forum is not a good place to be discussing your firearms and their needs. You do understand the Federal government is in the process of locating, and documenting ALL firearms in this country for future confiscation? Federal Firearm Registry Data Base. Where do you think they are getting that info on YOUR firearms?

Loose lips really do sink ships!

Stick a 3/4 inch sticky dot on a piece of paper and sight in at 1.25 in. low for a decent 100-200 yard zero. No reason to get fancy for a target at 25 yards. Best reason to own a 308 is for distance shooting. Well, that and punching holes in tougher stuff than a .22 will go through. You will still need to do some work out further distance, but that will make it easier to sight in out there.

Not all AR’s have the same sight height. I use taller scope mount, 3 inch sight height, I get 1.91 inches for 100 yd zero.

Also I recommend using a 200 yd zero for .223 or any high velocity round. This will give you a greater point blank range than a 100 yd zero. In other words you don’t have to worry about hold over until 250 yds or so.

The man did not specify scope or iron sights, or type of mounts if it was a scope.

Zero range is a personal preference thing. I use a 300m zero ofr iron sights. Many scopes have ballistic reticles as I am sure you know that are intended to be zeroes at 100 and the markings used for holdover beyond that.

The OP would have to fill in more info to be picky about things.

30-06? Doesn’t qualify as a real rifle for those of us wh shoot .45-70. Maybe a long barreled pistol with stock for sissy’s...

My 94 is the real deal. My grandpappy used it to guard his land claim in a Oklahoma land rush in the 1890’s. Can’t remember exactly which one. Family heirloom to be passed down the the youngest son of each generation.

Shoots damn good although is was used on the family farm for 45 years.

Wow! Heirloom is right.
Oldest I got is a 65 year old Winchester pump 16 gauge shotgun.
Getting harder and harder to find shells for it, wouldn't part with it for the world.

I like the older guns with wood. Not into plastic like my younguns are.

Got a Winchester pump in 12ga. They make damn good guns.

I heard 16ga was getting hard to find. Save what hulls you got and reload? Gun shows?

25 yard sight-in will shoot high every time because of the natural rise just after the bullet leaves the muzzle.

I am currently in country (AF) serving in a fire-team, certainly, I had better be armed or I bring nothing to the fight and I believe the gov. already knows that. Nothing has been learned by the gov. from my post.

Thank you for your service. By the way I have a hunting license which tells the government I probably have a gun.

Unfortunately a hunting license is intelligence gathered by the federal gov. through the States and yes, the gov. has already [assumed] a firearm is involved, but, the type, serial number, and location is still unknown to them.

Most importantly, you and yours are safe and never put all your eggs in one basket.

Thanks!
