I can go along with the title, because it is a bit of an introspective question. If you're running a 25 yard zero because that's simply what someone told you, is it really the right one for you? That kind of thing.
@Bowhunter, I would zero your rifle to 50 yards, that way you can be within the vital zone of anything from 0-250 yards. If you don't have 50 yards available there's a way to zero at 10 yards to be equivalent to a 50 yard zero.
What a timely article - my AR-556 w/Primary Arms red dot was zeroed at 25 yards. We went to the range yesterday and I was WAY high at 100 yards (and high at 50 as well). The gentleman we were with who has much more long gun experience than us recommended re-zeroing to 50 yards. Did that - worked a charm! Still need a lot of practice - especially since I'm math-challenged. But based on initial results, the 50-yard zero is going to be much better for us... at least for nowHello all, here is today's article posted on TheArmoryLife.com.
