This looks handy - I finally got my carbine close to zeroed at 50 yards last weekend, but want to check it. This will make shot spotting that much easier!

Question - is this target adjusted to account for elevation as well as the size for windage or does the round pass the same height above the barrel at 25 and 100 yards? I'm not 100% sure what the ballistic profile looks like for the 110gr standard round.

Thanks!

Respectfully ...

J.R.2009 and ibm1jh: Respectfully. Thank you for the target links. I am unable to access either site. Too many adds. Too much delay. Then both sites locked up my keyboard.

Is there anyway you can provide a link or site that is not laden with advertisements? I know it is getting harder and harder to provide good pictures for this Forum. Very sorry.

Respectfully. ...

I think part of the problem is my filters, blockers and browser . Could be my operating system also. Linux Mint 17.

Okay boys, been busy opening an account (basic) at Dropbox. See if this will open on the carbine sight in target. Remember this is on a 8.5"x 11" paper.

Don't try to make it more technical than it is. It is set up to give you a 100 yard set up for elevation and windage.
From what I have read over the years, this is the same "type" target that was used when the guns were zeroed by the manufacturers. Front sights were filed down as they shot for zero (more than a few of the shooters were women, BTW). That is the reason it seems none of the front sights seemed to ever be same height when issued.
When they went to the adjustable rear sights ..... that's another story.

Thatís what I was hoping to hear - thanks!

I hope to get out to the range soon to try this out, now that the cold may be breaking for us...
