    Best 303 zero

    A licensed work mate has asked me to sight in his 303 as I have range visits incorporated into my nzda membership fee.

    Going to Google but thought I'd ask here.

    What's a good zero to have where it bang on and then point and shoot out to 300 metres.

    I know for 308. It's 3 inch high at 100.

    Cheers.

    Projectile weight ?
    He nui to ngaromanga, he iti to putanga.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    Battle sight for the no 4 was 0-300 then a twiddly dial out to 1400. The 03 ballistically is not too far behind the 308, with 150 gr you can match the 2 for velocity quite easily. A 200 yd zero should give a mrt of around 3 1/2 in at 100 over open sights plenty good enough to plant things to 300.

    Probably a 150. Maybe a 180 grain.

    His is scoped.

    I will give 3.5 inch at 100 a go.

    Yep. Zero 3" high at 100 and hold 3" low at 100 when shooting, hold dead on at 200 and hold 8" high at 300. Pretty straight forward with 150-174 grn.
