I read a thread on another forum, where a player is zeroing in, testing and grouping his shots from a distance of 34'-5" (?) I'm not a member of that forum, so I thought I would ask my question here; at what distances do you sight and zero your scope?

34'-5" seems an odd distance, almost makes me want to sign on to that forum and inquire about the precise distance he has decided to zero in his rifle.

Is there a rule of thumb with regards to airsoft?

Mine is zeroed to 125'. After that I use a combination of mil-dots and Kentucky Windage. But then again, I dont have a super suped up rifle. 125' is the longest distance I can guarantee a hit to a head sized target (with the odd flyer every now and then).

34'-5" is what it says to zero your scope on for airsoft (on the manual for the leapers 3-9x50 I have ), so he probably did that for that reason.

I have mine scoped for 200' , but I just started to change that to 100" for a curtain reason

At 34'-5" a player won't even need a scope... he can just throw a handful of bbs at his target. "Safety Kill!!"

In the past, I have zeroed my Air rifle (FT rifle) scopes to 40 yards, and most recently I have zeroed my airsoft scopes to 100'

100" that is nothing to zero a scope in at. ;)


I always have mine zeroed at 100'. That is my MED, and it will also help when you are getting out to the longer ranges. Well it does for me anyway.

I usually zero to whatever the field has for targetting practice (usually 15 metres or so) as I can't zero my scope unless I'm at the field (I live in an apartment looking out to another apartment very close by).

However by the time I get to the field, the game starts within ~20 minutes, so I don't have a chance to zero at a longer ranges (most of the time I take to wear my vest, batteries, etc etc.).

So around an average of 33m is a good zeroing distance? I'll give that a try tomorrow when I have nothing to do after getting shot

I find it best, especially with a new gun, to zero 100', 150', and lastly 200'. Because at 100' you can figure out your hop-up. You should allways correct your hop-up first so its shooting at its flatest trajectory.
