Battle Sight Zero (BZO)
These BZO targets can be used to obtain a 50/200 yard zero for a typical AR platform chambered in 5.56mm and a Height Over Bore of about 2 inches. This means that the bullet should have a Point of Aim (POA) Point of Impact (POI) at 50 yards and again at 200 yards.
To use these targets, simply hang the targets on a target stand and either use the 50 yard Point of Aim Point of Impact zone or the 10/25 yard Point of Aim with offset Point of Impact.
If you are zeroing a new optic or an optic that is extremely off zero, it is recommended that you start with the 10yd and 50yd Zero target.
The windage and elevation conversions are provided at the bottom of each target for some common optics. Each grid square is approximately 0.25 MOA at 100 yards, or 0.5 MOA at 50 yards.
These targets should be used for establishing an initial zero and/or confirming your zero when you first arrive at the range. A validation zero should be performed at 200 yards.
