ARMA DYNAMICS OPTIC ZERO TARGETS

ARMA DYNAMICS recommends a 50 yard zero for your AR-15 rifle. The 50 yard zero provides for effective center-mass hits on target at the ranges where a carbine is most commonly used. A 50 yard zero allows the shooter to use a simple center-mass hold to ranges of point blank to 200-250 yards, depending on rifle and ammunition combination.

 

With this being said, we also realize that what works for one does not necessarily work for another. We have created a series of graphics to compare the different zeros for various barrel length and ammunition combinations to better choose what works best for your needs.

ALL TARGETS ARE DESIGNED TO BE PRINTED ON STANDARD 8.5" X 11" PAPER.

Ensure printer scaling is set to either 'off' or '100%' for proper print dimensions on all targets.

50 Yard Red Dot Optic Zero Target

AR-15 / AK-47

 

These targets are designed to take advantage of the human eye's natural tendency to center an object within a circle. Using these targets will save time and ammunition, while at the same time providing tighter groups and a better zero.

 

The targets are ‘calibrated’ for use at 50 yards to obtain the 50y/200m improved zero.

 

The target consists of:

  • 1 MOA center ‘zero’ dot
  • 2 MOA green inner dot to correspond with 2 MOA optics
  • 4 MOA red outer dot to correspond with 4 MOA optics
  • Larger black ring to assist in centering the optic’s dot over the center of the target.
  • Bold gray cross-hairs to assist in centering the reticule on the target.
  • Grid lines with click adjustment references and adjustment dial references (1/2 MOA adjustments common on red dot sights)

 

With the target is correctly placed at 50 yards, the optics dot will completely cover the colored portion of the corresponding target. The black ring will assist in correctly centering the optic over the target for a near perfect hold (depending on if you do your part). Simply shoot your groups and use the adjustment references to quickly move your point of impact.

25 Yard Red Dot Optic Zero Target

(Provides a 50 Yard Zero)

AR-15

 

These targets utilize the same design as the standard ARMA DYNAMICS 50 Yard Red Dot Zero Target, but have been adjusted to provide a 50 yard zero while only shooting from the 25 yard line. These are useful for those who may not have access to a longer range, but would like to have a 50 yard zero. The targets are designed to work with standard AR sight height (2.6" - 2.8" over the bore) using averaged M193 / M855 velocities from a 16" barrel. These should also help those using different rifle setups (barrel length) and/or heavier grain bullets get close.

 

Place the target at 25 yards. Your point of aim should be at the colored / bold outlined portion of the target. Fire your group. Adjust the point of impact to the GRAY DOT in the middle of the target. If you follow the adjustment grid it will get you there. The ballistic compensation works out to provide a 50/200 yard zero.

 

Be mindful to keep the optic's dot centered within the optic itself as much as possible when zeroing at this range as most optics are not entirely parallax free at 25 yards. Also, be sure to verify this at 50 yards when you can as there may be slight differences in each weapon that may alter the zero (sight over bore height, co-witness, barrel length, ammunition used, etc.).

25 Yard Red Dot Optic Zero Target

(Provides a 100 Yard Zero)

AR-15

 

These targets utilize the same design as the standard ARMA DYNAMICS 50 Yard Red Dot Zero Target, but have been adjusted to provide a 100 yard zero while only shooting from the 25 yard line. These are useful for those who may not have access to a longer range, but would like to have a 100 yard zero. The targets are designed to work with standard AR sight height (2.6" - 2.8" over the bore) using averaged M193 / M855 velocities from a 16" barrel.

25 Yard Red Dot Optic Zero Target

(Provides a 300 Yard Zero)

AR-15

 

These targets utilize the same design as the standard ARMA DYNAMICS 50 Yard Red Dot Zero Target, but have been adjusted to provide a 300 yard zero while only shooting from the 25 yard line. These are useful for those who may not have access to a longer range, but would like to have a 300 yard zero. The targets are designed to work with standard AR sight height (2.6" - 2.8" over the bore) using averaged M193 / M855 velocities from a 16" barrel. These should also help those using different rifle setups (barrel length) and/or heavier grain bullets get close.

25 Yard Red Dot Optic Zero Target

(Provides a 50 / 100 Yard Zero)

AK-47

 

These targets utilize the same design as the standard ARMA DYNAMICS 50 Yard Red Dot Zero Target, but have been adjusted to provide a 50 / 100 yard zero while only shooting from the 25 yard line. These are useful for those who may not have access to a longer range, but would like to have a 50 /100 yard zero. The targets are designed to work with a low mount AK optic sight height (2.25" over the bore) using averaged 123gr 7.62x39mm velocities from a 16" barrel. These should also help those using different rifle setups (barrel length) and/or heavier grain bullets get close.

 

Place the target at 25 yards. Your point of aim should be at the colored / bold outlined portion of the target. Fire your group. Adjust the point of impact to the GRAY DOT in the middle of the target. If you follow the adjustment grid it will get you there. The ballistic compensation works out to provide a 50 / 100 yard zero with an AK platform using standard velocity 7.62x39mm ammunition.

 

Be mindful to keep the optic's dot centered within the optic itself as much as possible when zeroing at this range as most optics are not entirely parallax free at 25 yards. Also, be sure to verify this at 50 yards when you can as there may be slight differences in each weapon that may alter the zero (sight over bore height, co-witness, barrel length, ammunition used, etc.).
