I just got the thing, and I was wondering how folks were going about picking their zero for it? The 1-6X bumped my Aimpoint off the top of my M4--and that was always zeroed at 50 yds. That worked well for a non-magnified optic.

With the 1-6X, I was wondering if I should keep the 50 yd zero...or push it out to 100? It seems like it would be a little 'easier' to pull off the shots at 50 yds, and know you got a tight group for the purposes of zeroing. With my eyes, even at 6X, I think I'm starting to introduce errors.

So, how are you going about determining your zero for the 1-6X?

I dont have the SWFA 1-6, but for my Leupold MK AR 1-4 I use a 100 yd zero, you don't have to hold off until 175 yds.....works well for me.
