I guess what I meant is that I pick 600 as my basic zero and base my comeups on that. Since I shoot only mid and long range prone, it makes more sense for me to start at 600. Kind of a middle distance if you will.
Makes sense to me.
Do you come off the bottom like an AR sight or have the scale zeroed and work off that?
.22 LR rounds are not going to inherently be as accurate as 5.56 rounds, so you'll find that sighting those in at 25 yards makes more sense. You can make shots out to fifty yards with a .22 LR, but sight them in at 25.
The 50/220 yard zero extends your point blank range by double of yours.I typically sight my AR in at 50 yards. I find that if I do that, then everything from 10 yards to 100 yards is in a killing zone when I aim at it. That's the basic mechanics of an AR round. I use an EoTech sight on my AR, and that's fine for everything up to that distance.
Bullcrap. You've evidently never heard of Eley Tenex, Lapua Midas, or several other premium rimfire choices.22 LR rounds are not going to inherently be as accurate as 5.56 rounds, so you'll find that sighting those in at 25 yards makes more sense.

Go to the Sniper Training Manual for some good information of marksmanship. Lots of info on scopes and zero as well.
Sniper Training, a great guide for anybody to improve marksmanship
You can zero any rifle for any distance at a 100 yard range. You just have to have the trajectory of your projectile so you know how high above the line of sight the bullet will cross the 100 yard mark. Then adjust your sights so that the bullet impacts that many inches high at 100 yards.All my rifles are set at 100yds, as thats the max I can shoot at my club. Hopefully we'll have a 200yrd range by this time next year and I can play around a bit more.
