OK kiddies so I got the Zero Target on a bigger plat form so that means you can copy it, save it and print at home :)

So here I used three shot groups using regular surplus ammo @ 25 yards.

Now when you do this [B]MAKE SURE YOUR LEAF SIGHT IS FLUSHED Meaning take the leaf sight and put it all the way on the end. Should be a little letter or Roman Numberal that it lines up with. That is Battlefield Zero and is good for 300m. You can do it at others but it really screws your aiming and bullet impact.

Like this http://i268.photobucket.com/albums/jj14/BBer45/IMG_0797.jpg

So I was lucky that this para I had was pretty much on point. Just made one adjustment and I was zeroed like in this photo.

Note; Guys don't get frustrated if your all over the place! I know its a pain in the *** but you can get it. Look this one was walking it down and using a good bit of ammo. However I finally got zeroed and its is my best shooter out of all. http://i268.photobucket.com/albums/jj14/BBer45/IMG_0253.jpg

Ok hope this helps :)

Wow!
This is great, thanks for posting. I'm going to use it next time I'm out at the range with my sks. :thumbsup:

My smart butt says something like this....
Use a Russian accent...

"Comrade, Russian rifle accurate. No need adjust comrade. You shoot, shoot comrade. Here (given a rifle), You shoot now comrade. Go!"

Lol OHOD there is actually some truth to it comrade.

When I shot Mr.Hippo's SKS (CG Member) and showed it how to zero it it shot right out the box dead on. I was blown away. Nothing to adjust or change just perfect.

Now my Para of course is aftermarket so yeah I could it being zeroed and my Romy was a parts but it still shot good.

Thanks for the write up, I have a Romanian I built from parts that I'm taking out on Saturday to zero.

This will help, I hope that as the barrel heats up I can adjust the front sight.
It is stuck in place right now and won't budge.

hmm I had that happen before and its a pain in the ***. Best thing to do is spray some CLP to loosen it up. Hopefully when the barrel warms up like you say it should be nice and easy :)

Me too, I'm taking my front sight tool. It is also a function test
the bolt need a little work to be able to close on a test case.
