Thanks .Rw said:I found another link..Scott.Thornton said:Original link is dead.
This is a neat sight in post! Last month I mounted an optic
on my AR and fortunatly there was another fellow sighting
a new optic install too. He had the correct sight-in info..
Short version is sight in at 25yds..( 30 meters is close).
You should be dead-on for 25 to 250 yards.
Wish I had this then. I could have helped us both.

I’ll always take a good opportunity to resurrect an interesting, but old, thread.Digging up a old thread I see.
I'm not sure how to get my point across but I'll try.
It's important to get your setup correct for the application and check it at several different distances to verify it.
For instance I use a 12.5" 6.8 SBR for hog hunting. So I'll do a 50 yard zero with 105 grain Cavity Back Bullets. I'm good for a 200 yard shot and hold top of the back at 300 yards.
On a 20" 223 with 53 grain Varmageddon I use for coyote hunting I'll do a good 225 yard zero and can hold center from point blank out to 300 yards.
300 Win Mag I use on the farm for deer with a 200 grain ELDX i do a 300 yard Zero and have my rise/drop from point blank to 1000 yards
If your doing a setup for self defense, I'm not sure how to answer that. I don't see having to use anything for a 300 yard shot without future serious legal issues.
But to be prepared for future society breakdown, etc. I'd be doing alot of studying charts, velocity, temps, all the not fun stuff. Work it out on paper then go verify it.
Might find better ballistics with a bullet change.
Don't forget the changes possible from heat of the summer to the cold of winter....
Just thinking out loud.

You’d have to shoot it to confirm. Bore sighter are meant only to get you on paper not replace the typical sighting in process. Until you actually shoot it there is no way of knowing which one is defective. If the rear sight has to go all the way to one side in order to put actual rounds on target, then you might have an issue.I bought a new Panther Arms AR-15 5.56/.223 on Friday. Today I received a laser bore-sighter in the mail and tried it out in the back yard using with factory iron sights at 50'.
The elevation was spot on, but the laser was off to the right 8-10". It took just about all of the adjustment on the rear sight to bring it into alignment.
Is something out of whack from the factory? I removed and reinserted the laser with no change.
OK, thank you very much. I will receive a red dot sight tomorrow and head to Magnolia most likely on Wednesday.You’d have to shoot it to confirm.
