So while zeroing in my rifle the other day I was trying to get consistant shots at 150' with a stock UTG mk96. Although its not upgraded yet it can reach that far but starts to hook left or right. Hopefully i'll be doing the TDC mod to get a straighter shot. Any who, I notice at my closer shots I had to aim lower since the hop up made my shots high. I'm a hunter so i understand i really don't want to have to aim way low to hit my target, but rather aim a little high for farther away targets. So my question is, what do range do yall zero your rifles in at?

I zero my gun to about 130 ft. If I do have to aim low its only 1 dot or so... Also if you zero around the med you might as well give up aiming low as they will be to close...

Gotcha, I'd rather aim higher.
The Jap high accuracy boys set their rifles to be most accurate at spot on 30meters, but as that would put most of us well inside our MED its abit moot.

I set my scope to about 2 thirds my maximum range, this means seting the scope so that the BB flies to roughly a 1 mil diameter on my scope, then I know that if I need a little more range I'll aim higher, but I also know I'm going to be close with the closer shots..... but then I'm running an LRB in all but 1 of my rifles and they give a much flatter tragectory than a 'normal' hop and barrel system could ever dream of :shrug:

Sorry, I know what you mean, but I would preferr to aim high for farther targets than dip my rifle down to aim lower.
HOLD THE PHONE! I aim lower for closer targets and higher for futher away targets. Unless I read your posts wrong you've got me confused.

No your correct, i'm just saying i'd rather be able to not have to aim lower ever, but that is unlikly if I want to hit targets farther away.

I'm using the r-hop which gives a pretty flat trajectory but I'm looking to get er-hop and an LRB to make it even better. I used to set my hop so it went straight then dropped at around the 160ft range. I like the more accurate shorter distance much better than the less accurate longer distance. As far as zeroing my scope goes, I only did it once, at around the 300ft range, and now I know where my hopup should be sendng my bbs. And out of curiosity, Vindi, can you take your barrel out to clean it with the LRBs you have? I never quite understood how that worked.

Yup, Its all held/bent in place by various screws & stops 'n' what have you.... undo the tensioning screws, leaving the stops in place so everything goes back as it was, and then just remove the barrel/hop unit as normal :tup:

I still havent found a method I like of making the barrels more rigid & vibration free as yet, so have just bound them in about 2 full rolls of black E tape each for now :shrug:

While you are zeroing, don't forget that some other very important factors are adjusting the sight image to 0% shadow while you are in a perfectly rested position with your head on the stock and leveling the sights so that you don't have any canting effect.

I also like to zero the scope at 75% of the max range or even higher and then aim lower for closer targets, hopefully making it so that the higher post in the crosshair represents a precise distance, like 30m or the MED. This way I have two references I can check the target against..

I was thinking about this very subject not long ago, and I thought mabe I could just get a realy nice scope and put little marks on the adjustment wheel and each mark represents fifty feet so I just adjust it for longer ranges. Im not sure if this is totally over-bored but its worth a try

When I finally get around to getting my M14 fully operational and setup with my ER-hop and LRB I will be setting my scope for the end of my flat trajectory, that way I know for anything past that point I need to aim above. If it's inside of it, all I need to do is account for wind.
