Hm, the pistol zero distance thing is driving me nuts. So, I get it, minimal bore-sight height offset on pistols makes for a less of an issue than with an AR with sights a good inch and a half or two inches higher than the bore. But, that said, would a 25 yard zero be ideal for all shooting within 25 yards? or if my shooting is all or mostly all within 25 yards, is there a better compromise zero? Somehow I think I'm overthinking this and imagining that 9mm rounds have some crazy ballistic arcs to 25 yards when I know that they don't.
Excellent idea! Yeah, I can't shoot 98s on B8's, that's for sure.Someone posted up differences between zero distances with 9mm - Ill see if I can track down the images. 99% of people aren't going to notice any shift whatsoever from a 25m zero at closer distances.
I think Jedi has a good breakdown of his zero procedure. I know most guys aren't shooting 98s on 25m B8s which makes zeroing difficult at that range. I believe he advocates for a 10m zero where its easier to achieve a group to adjust from followed by confirming at 25m. Its the same principle as the 50/200(ish) zero - get your windage dialed in 100% at 50 and then make elevation adjustments only at 200.
