    One more thing,,,

    It doesn't have a lot (if anything) to do with "zero"; but a lot to do with accuracy, If you shoot "prone" or from a rest, they won't make much difference; but for those "off hand" shots, it could mean the difference between a clean kill and a wounded rabbit...

    It's a thing called a "trigger shoe": a little item that fastens unto your rifles trigger with little "Allen" set screws.
    It's "ribbed" and ; being wider than the trigger; distributes the "pull" over a wider area. This lessens the chance of you "twisting" the weapon; ever so slightly, when you pull the trigger. It will also seem to "lighten" the effort needed to pull the trigger. Your felt resistance will be a lot less.

    These little thngs work; my .22 bolt actions would seem naked without them.

    GENTLEMEN! Check out CCI Velocitors and every article you can research. Out of my Ruger 10/22's, target barrels and trigger jobs, I am under a nickle size for 10 shot groups at 70 yards. Between zero and 70, the rise is less than an inch and 3" low at 100 yards. It is a full 40 grain HP and a little hotter than standard .22LR but the case isnt any longer than standard unlike another Hyper Velocity round.

    This is the best explanation of the .22lr zero that I have ever seen... I have a 3-9x on a Remington 522 and keep it at about 5-6x for zeroing at 75 yards... Kudo's to you for knowing what you are talking about and having the vanishing ability to explain it to others... SSG

    [​IMG][/URL] Uploaded with ImageShack.us[/IMG]I gather from your comment about mildot sights you are a scope man, with a scope I do a 50 yard zero, due to old eye balls and a cheap 46 year old single shot gun with iron sights I do 25 yards, Works for me. Can't hardly see a squirrel in the tree's much farther than that and the old iron sighted gun is lighter and easier for this old dinosaur to cart around.
