I have used this method for zeroing red dot equipped carbines since 2007. To truly zero a carbine you need a good group. (with decent ammo in a decent carbine you should be able to shoot well under a 1" group at 50 yards) With a red dot on a carbine it can be difficult to see well enough to aim well enough at 50 yards (try aiming at a 1" target with a dot at 50 yards) to get a good zero so I developed this method to get a 50/200 yard zero at 10 yards.  If done correctly it works very well and can be done very quickly.  Follow the instructions on the downloadable target and you will be golden!  NOTE: this target was designed around a 5.56 carbine with an optic that is mounted with the center of the optic 2.8" from the center of the bore.  Standard height (non 1.92) red dot optics.

50 yard zero at 10 yards

I cannot wait to use your target, I am zeroing a trijucon credo 1-8 lpvo and have been using a 36 yard zero but for distance your explanation of the 50 yard has convinced me it would serve me better. Much thanks for a no cost solution to my problem!

200 yrd Zero

I was curious how well this would work, so I downloaded this target & took it to the Range to zero in a new red dot. Very straight forward, easy instructions, & to my amazement, Spot On! Highly Recommend. Easy way to save ammo & zero out to 200 yrds.
