As some of you may have seen, I recently took apart/upgraded and painted my rifle. After reassembly I was taking some pot shots in my backyard to function test with .2s and was just watching the trajectory and it got me thinking.

How do you zero your rifle?

I have read and observed that the hop up needs to "warm up". e.g. the first 8-10 shots with .2s were level (for the short distance i was plinking) after that the hop up really kicked in and they were jumping. So to zero with heavy BBs and a "warm" hop up would make sense since this would be much longer range. HOWEVER, as a sniper we probably aren't attaining a ROF to keep the hop up "warm", thus effecting our trajectory with a "cold" hop up. and if we are taking enough shots from one position to "warm" our hop up... we're probably being shot at


So is it better to zero with a cold bucking? or to try and account for it after zeroing with a warm bucking? This may be a noob question, but I cant ever remember seeing a topic on this anywhere.

this makes a lot of sense, whenever i use my friend's M700 i take very few shots. like 10 a short game. so i agree with this completely. well for bolt action rifles, for a long range AEG this would probably be different as they can fire shots very frequently.
