    Serbian 222 zeroing.

    Didn't like the loopy 3x9,didnt have enough eye adjustment for my old eyes,so put on a un named scope 4x16x50.
    Bore sighted at 50 yds on a building near by at home.Got some belmont ammo and off to the range we go.50 yds will do for a start.
    1st group low left.

    What only 2 bullits hit,looked a bit close,2 in one on the cross.No more playing with scope.That will do me.
    Shot a few bunnys out to 180 yds after that.Now for a roo or fallow.
    Scope dials pretty good so pretty please with rifle and scope.

    With that name it's an early one, modern manufacture says Serbia and has a lower standard of finish. Nice ajustable trigger generous mag length. Bloody hard barrel steel in either 1:10 or 1:12 twist which rules out bullets over 65 grains not that is really an issue. As already said they are excellent but underrated rifles, enjoy.

    What's the "unnamed 4-16x50 scope". A lot of credit must go to that.
    Good sight in session !

    Nothing on scope,came with rifle.Cheap scope from china maybe.Iv done 2 in 1 befor with my 308 at a 100yds thru a millet scope.The colour joints on the target make it easier to hold cross hairs on.Get a nice steady hold on the fine joint lines.Watch yr light pulse on the cross,close yr eyes,2 breaths in and out,on the third breath out,open yr eyes and pause for a second on the cross and gentle squeeze off the trigger and watch thru the scope at yr target.
