I would think most shots will be within 100 yrds so dead on at 100. Hold over for longer shots as needed and under for close shots.
start at 25 yards then move out to 100 yards. After shooting it for awhile, you'll become familiar with it and know how it performs at different distances.
I line my Marlin 782 in at around 50-75 yards, but then I don't shoot much further than that with it. Wandering off topic just a bit, what ammo are you using? I used CCI for years and was not overly satisfied with it until a fellow gun crank told me to try Winchester. I did and results improved dramatically, especially when using the Supremes in the black box, they're pure poison on ground hogs. Good shooting!
i sight my magnum in for 100 yards i shoot remington poly-tips (33 grain)
have mine set at 100 and can pick squirrels that far out.
Start at 50 yards with a known grain load. Experiment with higher loads in steps of 25 yards at a time 'til you are happy with your grouping.
I shoot nothing but the Winchester 40 gr. Hollow points in my Winchester Model 61 pump gun and I sight them in at 75 yards. Works great for me. I agree with 007 about the Winchester supreme loads especially the 34 gr. HP but I can't seem to find any around here.
How far do you think
I initially zeroed my Ruger 77/22M in for 50 yards, then for 75 yards and left it at that. For the site(s) where I use it, I rarely get more than 50 yards before trees are blocking my shot!
i sited my .22 in at 100 yards
