    the target will print out and fit on normal 8.5x11 inch paper.

    thanks for the file.

    It looks OK detail-wise, but it prints very light for some reason.

    I'm going to try and use it though, by darkening the blocks and target and sight instructions by hand, and them hopefully I can copy that on a Xerox.

    If this works it will save me from ordering zeroing targets from Bushmaster,which I used the first time I zeroed an M15

    Could you send me the third rule in a PM?

    Thanks.

    Guys,

    Check out my post here. There's a direct link to a zeroing target in a PDF form.

    main post is updated, thanks everyone for their input.
    Also, the problem with option 1 being to faded could not be reproduced on my printer.

    Dench,

    I got to play with the file you sent me and with the one in PDF. You are right, the PDF prints a littlle smaller but there is a reason for that. The file is slightly bigger that the max allowable printing dimension for an 8.5 by 11 inch piece of paper. On my printer driver it was automatically selecting "shrink to fit" in the page scalling option and shrinking the size to 97% of the original. When I changed the page scalling to "none" it ends up printing out at the same dimensions as your file.

    25 meter zero targets are different for the m4 and m16a2/3/4.

    and it will be different for your 16 inch barrel vs the 14.5 on the sopmod.

    unless you are zeroing an aimpoint or acog, if you try to go box by box youll drive yourself nuts. trust me.

    Vic,

    I printed out one copy and saved the file. It looks good, thanks!

    Yup I know that. The number of click needed to center will be less the shorter the barrel is but the direction of the clicks as per the chart will still be the same. It will get you there... as long as you remember that caveat.
